The trail conditions on the “Winter Trails” route were pretty bad today. There was a lot of puddles and wet trails from melting snow. There was also a thick layer of ice under all of the bridges on the route. They put sand and salt down on a lot of the trails, which helped a little with the ice, but made the trails a muddy, gritty mess. Studded tires and fenders would help, but it’s probably best to skip this route and do one of the road rides.
