Road and Trail Conditions

The Friday/Saturday ice storm has left an icy mess on most bike trails and side streets. I rode some of the trails on Saturday morning when the ice was still somewhat slushy and did ok on my mountain bike with studded tires. However, the temperature dropped throughout the day and those slushy trails turn to hard bumpy ice that was difficult to ride even with a studded tire fat bike. Once the trails get like this it’s almost impossible to remove the ice without using a lot of salt and sand. I don’t expect the trail conditions to improve much until at least Wednesday or Thursday when the temperatures get above freezing. Even then, the trails in shaded areas will remain icy long after that.

Thanks for the update.  This will all soon pass and we will be able to venture out with some added caution.  We were lucky too have the previous week of warmer weather where conditions were  pretty good.
