I rode all loops this morning. The trail was nicely frozen. And I saw less snow/ice covering them than last Sunday.

Looking at the weather, low in the teens tonight, the trail should be frozen solid, for a Saturday morning ride. :)


If I lived closer I would have ridden it this (Sunday) morning. Instead had to content myself with Addison Oaks and Bald Mountain. Man are my legs out of shape!

Rode all loops today, the trail is 95% dry, the only ice is on D-loop the fridge, (12.5 mile marker) and just after, at the bottom of the first climb. Several soft spots, most of them are on A-loop, they should be walked if your leaving pizza cutters. Fat would be the preferred bike, but skinny would do, just tread lightly... If you're just going to ride two loops, I would recommend B-loop over D-loop.

Tree down at mile 14 on 'D'. Right at the top of the sandy switchback climb. About 5 1/2 or 6" and will probably need a chainsaw. Otherwise, clear sailing and beautiful out there. Go get some!
