The best time of year for XC riding in Golden starts in September. The official Moonraker trail crew and the unofficial volunteers have been improving the trails all summer, the blazing heat is finished, the autumn colours are emerging, and best of all, the bugs are dead. There are over 50km of trails on this expanding network, the first dusting of snow is on the surrounding peaks, and recent rain has made the trails tacky and smooth.
