Addison was hardly fat bike friendly on Saturday. The groomed route at Addison isn't on the normal trails for the most part so it's not going to get packed down(destroyed) by hikers/walkers like the other trails. So it is really only rideable on a fat bike.

I drove by Addison on the way into work today. It does not appear they have groomed the trail since the race last Saturday.

The trail is very firm from the cold weather, but beat up bad from the race and foot traffic. I assume that it is rideable, but it will be a bumpy ride. :(

I did see tracks from someone attempting to ride there last night, it would be nice to hear their thoughts on the trail.

I'm hoping to get out there soon, but it probably won't be until Sunday.

The whole of the fat bike route is ridable. Some of the problem spots during last week's race are firm, but still lumpy, and like riding a rock garden. Quite navigable, though. The bigger thing to watch for is frozen-in ruts along the main part of the trail; some of those can surprise you.

Does anyone have an idea on the road conditions north of Addisson Oaks? The Grampian ride course..... Was hoping to get out on the fat bikes for some mileage if not too muddy.

Thanks,

Mike

Sunny areas are pretty good, shaded areas are still wet. I got out today, northern Macomb, Oakland and Lapeer county roads

4-6 I'd say. All of the gravel roads are great though!
