Wasn't too bad. Dave and Jeff did all the heavy lifting ;-)

Thanks for the quick work on the tree fall!
Trail is in great shape for winter riding, nice coating of snow, and today, the sun actually was shining! Amazing!

I rode Novi this afternoon, the trail was in great shape, other than the dead cat frozen in the trail by the railroad tracks just before the second bridge. Sorry, that's one deadfall I'm not cleaning up.

Bah. Just kick it. ;)

I removed a squishy raccoon from Addison in the summer heat... It's a little easier to move a frozen cat I imagine, as it doesn't get stuck to the tines / your toes.

Someone or something got it. There was no sign of it this morning and the trail is fantastic. I was the second bike out there today all the way to Flack Attack when the rider before me hit the two track. So I got to lay down freshies for the second half of the trail. It was a great ride!

Would sliding around a corner be curling one out on the trail?

Skipped the crater, that would be nuts, even with studs.... Really I had no issues, and no studded tires :(

Rode first thing this morning. Lots of ice on the trail - those of us with studs had a better ride than those without, but they weren't absolutely necessary.

Did the whole trail today (Tuesday) and it was icy! Hikers were falling all over the place. No trees down or any other problems. Nice!
