Great conditions! Some spots are starting to get greasy so tomorrow might be even worse...

Ride with frozen ground. Going Sunday am. Are studs needed? I have all sorts of configurations

Ride ready or icy mess right now? Thinking of early Friday morning.

It's been icy, but still good riding. Friday's temps look great - but the weekend's going to be sketchy with highs in the 40s.

Cool, thanks. Looking ahead Friday morning seemed to be the window period.

Rode this morning on fat tire. Trail is firm if you can ride early enough to beat sun and thaw. By 9:45
the trail was soft. Had to bug out.

Skinny tire ruts everywhere, but floated over just fine with fat tire.
