Trail Reports



This entry is to be used by all the local Dubuque County racers to keep all informed and up to date on the condition of the Triple D race route (mostly the Heritage Trail).
Currently the entire route is open and in good condition, the last year has seen numerous projects where new bridges were installed and sections of the trail repaired due to flooding. They city of Dyersville event extended the trail westward to their historic downtown, giving the bikers the possibility for a cozier halfway check point (more on that as plans solidify).

Also local Triple D Racer and Mr Hundie (Dave Giegerich) will be posting on his blogsite weekly updates on the trail conditions (once the first snow flys)

There have been meetings of numerous local groups over the planned overpass at Hwy52. For some reason the engineer who drew up the plans thinks that the bridge shouldn't serve the snow mobile traffic! If you get the opportunity drop the DCCC an email to let them know the importance of snow mobiles and the positive benefits they bring to our winter trail systems.

  1. Hey, just make sure the checkpoint is somewhere near a place that sells Gatorade and peanut M&Ms, OK?

  2. Aren't peanut M&Ms a banned substance now?

  3. @Dave: Not last I checked, and plus, They Can't Take That Away From Me.

    @Anon: Check out Dave's blog...he updates it pretty often. Not that it matters, since conditions changed drastically within 48 hours of the start the last two years.

    All part of the fun.

  4. Snowmobiles don't need a pedestrian over pass.Use the snow next to the road.

  5. True, agree... but it's a busy highway, i know i'd prefer as a snowmobiler to use the safety of an overpass.
