No. Particularly not with today's warm temps and rain.

Looks like I will be riding the Stony Road as well. Gonna try to start at 6 (at Boat Launch) to maximize weather considerations. :)

Well, I'm sure yesterday's snow didn't help the trails much. So what do we do instead? Alternatives include dirt roads (~15 miles, more or less hilly) or the MOT from Onyx to the bridge and back.

Thoughts?

I can't make it, but the MOT was clear of snow on the section you mention, so it should be good for today.

Either is OK for me.
I assume the "bridge' is the one at the 12 mile mark?

It's generally considered the overpass that goes over M-53.

(I personally like riding out to the train trestle just after that, since it's a pretty place to stop and turn around. But I won't be there, so my opinion basically means nothing.)
