Very likely the answer is yes. The question yet to be answered is "Where?"

It's a mountain bike. It's February. You're riding outside. You'll be getting your bike dirty. Be happy about it.

It builds character. That is until the whining starts.... :P

In any case, I imagine the possibility exists that Stony may be frozen by tomorrow night. Likely a game-time decision, at best.

Alternatives are still possible.... There's always the Metro Beach Path from Schoenherr to the beach and back (~25 miles, IIRC), the MOT (again), or even the CRT out to Opdyke and back (depending on condition of the CRT [Erick?]).

Any others?

My prefered only because I do not have to drive to ride my bike.
Secondary I have never been on CRT to Opdyke that would be a change for me.

You may wish to figure out the total distance before you call that your preference. Link

Doesn't quite fit into our given time window. :P

Oh I would meet you guys at BoA 16 mile and Scheoner ... hmm looking at your route Utica and 16
24 minutes travel to BoA so it adds an hour ride time 9 additional Miles

How slimy are the dirt roads gonna be?

I'd be up for just about anything, but don't really care for Metro Pkwy path...

Paint Creek + Dirt roads (Dutton)? I'm not too concerned with road grime.

CRT should be real nasty between the Onyx and Livernois 'Rochester proper', unless it's frozen then it''s be bumpy cause its rutted all to *beep*. I rode the stretch nearest Rochester Rd on Sunday.

PCT but they posted on facebook today that trail conditions are perfect for training. if you are a mud wrestler.

Did you ride all of it or only the Hills sections?

It was nasty east of Rochester rd last weekend.

I'm in Wayne tomorrow until God only knows when, so I guess I'll show up for post-ride activities...unless I get distracted along the way. Dutton is on my list, though.
