KC Trail Conditions Are Just A Tweet Away

So, you’re stuck in rush hour traffic, hoping to get out on your favorite trails before dark, and you’re wondering what the trail conditions are like?

Well, wonder no more – Earth Riders MTB Club has hooked up a Twitter feed to the trail conditions information they provide on their forums (http://forums.earthriders.com) for all the metro area trails.

Now, when the trail status is updated on the forums, KcTrailsStatus will tweet the conditions, for example:


#SMP CLOSED: Not Rideable (ptooi)
