    Trail Condition: Icy
    Date Posted: Yesterday @ 10:06 AM

    Details:  Rode Lyndale to Normandale last night and it was ice in the trees and snow pack in the open areas. I'd say 75% ice, 25% pack.

    Details:  Rode Mendota to Cedar Ave Thursday evening at 5. Areas that get any sun at all are basically scary, dark grey and icy. Sheltered sections are nice. Overall, 40% ice, 60% nice.

    Trail Condition: Melting Do Not Ride
    Date Posted: 02-07-2016 @ 07:49 AM

    Details:  It's been above freezing for almost 24 hours. It'll freeze again tonight, and then we'll be good for the week. Please don't ride and create ruts. Thank you

    Details:  The trail is in really nice shape between BFB and the power lines. It gets a little sketchy at times east of there and becomes considerably harder in places.

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 01-27-2016 @ 06:30 AM

    Details:  As with Leb, borderline packed on my ride yesterday from Mendota to the Ferry bridge. A few icy spots more towards the ferry bridge and of course under the Mendota bridge.

    Otherwise smooth sailing, enjoy it while it lasts before the warm weather moves in.

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 01-22-2016 @ 02:49 PM

    Details:  Indian mound to 35W- perfect with fat tires, no ice.

    35W-169- doable but slick, if you had studded tires I would use them but not necessary. Skinnys forget about it.

    For racers tomorrow, 2 guys were out there on motorbikes grooming the snow so all track for race is good to go. Turned up lots of debris but traction was great with fat tires psi 9-10.

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 01-22-2016 @ 02:32 PM

    Details:  Just a reminder to all. There is the Penn Cycle Get Phat with Pat fat bike race going from the Lyndale parking lot tomorrow Saturday 10am until about 1:30pm (see race thread in the forums). Please do not impede the racers. FYI, this race also raises funds for MORC. So why not race? Good times and good prizes!!

    Thanks,
    Dennis.

    Details:  Rode Cedar to Bloomington Ferry, nicely packed, no ice, clear sailing.
    Between Cedar to 35W, trail groomed into a nice 8-12" bowl.
    35W to Ferry bridge, a little bit narrower, more like a 6-8" rut.


    Floating bridge is frozen in the ice and the ice is still not safe to cross, use the tree bridge.

    A friendly reminder as posted earlier, please stay on the main trails.

    Details:  Rode early afternoon today from Mendota down to close to the Cedar Ave bridge. The trail was nicely packed to about a 10"width. Much more pleasant than my twisting, turning experience last night east of the Lyndale parking lot. Highly recommended.
