    Details:  Inch of snow over packed and occasionally icy trail. Enough Fat bikes through today to mark the trail well. Rode BFB to 9mile.

    Details:  Well packed BFB to 9 mile. FAT tread within frozen trail giving good traction. Didn't slip once. I rode the trail before it got above freezing this morning, so conditions may have changed. Always best to stay off, too, when temps are above freezing causing the trial to melt. (preaching to the choir!)

    Details:  Trail was well packed Ferry Bridge to 9 mile. Fat bike tread marks provided really good traction, and there wasn't any ice. Met someone riding with regular MB tires, so good-to-go with skinny.

    Details:  Great first ride of the year. Rode from Sibley House to 35W and Back. 20 miles of wide packed snow. Good for skinny tires too now, very firm snow super highway. Passed 24 bikers, 9 hikers and 5 dogs this morning enjoying the first day of the year.

    Trail Condition: Fat

    Details:  I'm saying fat tires only because the pack is soft. Once it gets colder it would be packed. It was sweet out there today, not slippery at all for fatbikers and lots of tracks already. Creek is nowhere near frozen.

    Details:  Yep, lots and lots of ruts. Its really too bad that people can't stay off trails when conditions are bad. It doesn't help our effort to keep our natural trail. Damage like that is used against us mountain bikers all the time. Another sad consequence of this is that it demotivates people that are volunteering their time to keep our trails for all to use. What a shame.

    Details:  Rode from Ferry Parking and Nine Mile, and trail is ridable for all. LOTS of tire ruts. Still a good ride, but lots of ruts! Makes some of the bridge crossings a little shady with lots of nasty ruts before and after the bridges. Some day hopefully we get some snow to cover up all the ruts.

    Details:  Please stay do not ride the River Trail if the temps get about freezing this weekend. Hit the roads and wait until temps go below freezing. Riding the trail when conditions are bad do not help our effort to keep the trail natural!! Perception can do more damage than a trashed trail.

    Thanks.

    Details:  Weekend should be good if it doesn't get too warm. If it does give the trail a break and ride on the roads. Frozen ruts are not fun!!

    Don't forget to ask people you meet on the trail if they signed the petition!!

    Details:  It's well packed, but there was a lot of ice. FAT bikes and any other bike with studded tires will be fine.
