RTF

  I rolled RTF from Barracks to Fontaine and O’Hill this morning. Ground was frozen with few/no bike tracks (good job on being respectful during the recently wet conditions, everyone!) and some footprints (not as good, foot traffic!) Most (85%) of the trail looked like it would be completely dry when it thawed. There were a few spots that were still damp, and a few standing puddles. Hit the high trails (top of OHill) anytime, and check out the new re-route that went in today. Give the lower trails another day or two.

gravel roads

Just an FYI, the gravel/dirt roads out Free union way (Fox mtn, clark, Ballards mill, and Wesley chapel) were extremely muddy and soft last night (Tuesday). Will be even worse after todays rain I’m sure. Looks like spin class the rest of the week..

Ride Frozen Trails

Trails are going to be wet for a while. We received a couple inches of rain/sleet recently, and air temperatures are not promoting evaporation. Freeze thaw cycles are loosening soil, making mud when the trails thaw. Ride trails ONLY when they are frozen solid, and get off them before the sun thaws the trail surface.
