Depending on wind speed and direction, Carson City air quality has fluctuating between moderate (tolerable) and hazardous (you can taste it) thanks to drifting smoke from the Rim Fire. You need to be quick if you’re going to get your mountain bike fix.
Here’s a great video from local rider Brent Ruybalid, seizing his opportunity for a smoke break. Brent says, “Smoke from the Rim Fire had us socked in for well over a week and I was going stir crazy. It was semi clear when I woke up so I wanted to get out there for a dirt fix before the smoke came back heavy.”
Thankfully it looks like the wind will shift and come in from the north starting this weekend. Maybe we’ll all be able to get back on the trail soon!
