Travel Ban

We're getting some questions in the shop on the current travel restriction in Eastern Manitoba (actually from the east end of Lake Winnipeg thru to the Manitoba/Ontario border), which obviously affects back country mountain biking among other things, so we figured we'd provide our readers with a link to the latest government updates here.

The line of the update that concerns us the most reads as follows:  
"Backcountry travel is prohibited. Travel Permits may be issued for remote cottages, some commercial operations, and other exceptional circumstances."

That doesn't sound very promising, but of course check the link and your local news reports often because the restrictions could change quickly.  And hey, if riding in the backcountry doesn't work out in the next week or two we'll see you on the monkey trails.
