    Details:  What a blast out there yesterday! I don't think it gets any better for winter riding. Get out and enjoy it today if you're at all able to!

    Trail Condition: Packed
    Date Posted: 12-27-2013 @ 04:27 PM

    Details:  I rode from Lyndale to Bloomington Ferry and back and would call it packed. The trail was packing nicely with the warm weather. In the warmest part of the day the trail was getting a tiny bit slushy in just a couple spots along the river, but it will get below freezing tonight and stay there for a while.

    Trail Condition: Needs Packing
    Date Posted: 12-27-2013 @ 11:39 AM

    Details:  I was out Christmas day and worked to pack the 3" of snow from the night before between Lyndale and Cedar. It was pretty slow going for me for the most part. It became evident early on that being clipped in was in no way an advantage out there. I've since invested in a pair of platform pedals and boots to allow me to more easily get a foot down before going down.

    Still, it was a lot of fun as always!

    Details:  Rode from the Bloomington Ferry parking lot to the Cedar Avenue Bridge and conditions were fantastic for fatbikes. On the way back it started to snow (great night ride) and was a bit more slippery on the bridges. Has anyone seen that *fountain* that bubbles up water about a mile from the Cedar Avenue Bridge? What an amazing site!

    Details:  LIke Jim said. Nice wide well-packed trail from Bloomington Ferry to Cedar Ave. Easy riding for fat or skinny bikes. I'm guessing that the Mpls group packed from Sibley House to Cedar, but don't know for sure.

    Details:  Rode the twenty miles from BFB to IMES and back. Thank you Pugs for packing the trail! Beautiful day, perfect ride! Rode a 29er 2.2 deflated just fine today. Without the hard pack would not have been so easy.

    Trail Condition: Tacky
    Date Posted: 11-18-2013 @ 05:46 PM

    Details:  98% dry or tacky. 2% damp. Just a couple of small wet spots or puddles, easily avoided. Excellent! I rode between Indian Mounds Elementary School and the railroad swing bridge near the Masonic Home. Can't say what it's like west of the swing bridge.

    Details:  Trail and non trail is fat-tastic. Youngblood and friends thanks for your work down there.

    Did my part and dusted off that one tree skinny off in the sticks, starting to rott, perfect.

    Details:  Mostly dry. A few puddles here and there on the west end. One of the field crossings is greasy but otherwise the trail is mostly dry or tacky.

    Details:  Good trail conditions on the River Trail. Also, many users on the trail this time of year. Remember the MN River Trail is not a race track so be nice and have fun.
