Judging from the one Trail Conditions update done today, and the fact that it really isn't getting above freezing out there, I'm feeling fairly confident that Stony will be in pretty good shape this evening. Fortunately, the Pines is first on the agenda, so we will test that theory pretty quickly. If the Pines is OK, I can't see the rest being that bad.

Well, the Pines wasn't muddy - it was icy. :P We bailed after that and did a short road route. Thanks to those who showed (including the new guy, Eric)! :D

Thanks for the shout out, haha! I had a good time, minus the frozen feet... Thinking about heading out this afternoon/evening as well if the weather holds and I may take the day off tom. to ride as well. If anyone is interested in riding tonight or tom. day let me know. I was thinking probably river bend or just another road ride if the trails are still icy (bruised hip and confidence from last night).

Considering the likely muddy condition of the trails, we might want to look at a few alternatives....

The usual fallback is a MOT ride, though we can look at the CRT (likely also muddy) or dirt roads north of Stony (possibly also messy). Any others?

CRT is usually only muddy in tehcrished limestone sectionof Rochester proper. west of Livernois is recycled blacktop and mud free.

Other choices are Paint creek trail - nice and soupy

Stony Bikini loop. just fine and same as MOT

so you have 3 coices

Bikini loop is only 5 miles and I swear there's a cold headwind the entire loop no matter which way you go. I vote for MOT. Not that my vote should count for much since I've been MIA.

MOT'll be nicer this time of year. Less traffic, and it won't pass through the low laying places where large puddles collect.

I may be up for a brisk ride from Onyx out to the Romeo bridge (or maybe the train trestle) and back.

It's 6 miles and if you deviate and do the nature center road and golf course road and some other parking areas it can be much longer. Yes multiple laps are usually required done, the choices are short with elevation changes vs long, straight, and flat sometimes witha serious wind.

The last couple times I have done the MOT I was flying on my way out to Romeo and suffered on the way back.

I do agree with steve on the less puddles on teh MOT though.

LMAO I have been the MIA poster child for the last 6 months. I am suprised I did not find my bike pic on a milk carton

Sounds like MOT is the polpular selection so far.... I was just thinking of myself and hoping I could ride instead of driving to the meeting location..oh well :wink:

I will let your guys decide on the turn point.

I am in for Onyx / MOT -> Romeo. Same Meeting time ? 6:30

Meet at 6:30, roll at 6:45. Paved ride, lights required, turn-around point TBD, but probably the bridge over M-53.
