As the month of October rides to a close so does the riding season for many clubs. Some clubs will hike, and when the snow begins ski on days that formally showed rides. It has been a great, and interesting riding year. There was minimal snow over the winter -those who enjoyed snow shoeing and lived in the Barberton/Norton area got to travel to enjoy their sport. We enjoyed a never ending summer with record warm temperatures continuing into late October.
