    Details:  Rode at 4:30 p.m., and the trail was packed and very fast. Icy on spots closest to the river, the further in I stayed, the better the trails were. I can't adequately describe this spot, but it is about one or two miles before Nine Mile Creek, and its a major ice area, be careful. Crossing the creek on the bridge is still solid. I rode without trouble on Surly Nates.

    Details:  Perfect conditions! Rode from 35w to Cedar then back towards Ferry Bridge, everything is great, few icy spots. Rip it up!

    It was really nice to be out.

    Details:  Rode today from Lyndale to Ferry on a fattie, and it was grand. Saw a few skinny tired bikes, and they did mostly fine, but there were several places were they seemed to have no control and were all over the trail and off the trail. No studs needed, at this time.

    Details:  Road on studded skinnies. Packed from Ferry Bridge to Lyndale. No studs necessary. Narrow spots test your skillz. Fun fun! Needs packing near Cedar Ave. I aborted after riding 1 mile south of Cedar Ave on my skinnies. I didn't have enough motivation to ride at 4 mph today.

    Details:  Rode Ferry to Lyndale. It's packed well by various user groups. A little narrow in spots, I'd say FatBike, but ride what ya brung and you'll be fine.

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 02-22-2013 @ 09:02 PM

    Details:  There is a nice pug rut from ferry to lyndale around noonish. I was the 3rd rider out there and still blazed about 4-5 miles of fresh snow on some of the routes. If you can't ride the rut you will struggle. If you can, enjoy

    Ran nates and did fine.

    Endo will struggle, husker don'ts and larrys will be ok.

    Details:  I road the section from Lyndale to the Ferry Bridge. It was packed snow and about 10% ice. I road it with studded skinnies and it was about as fast as it is in summer. Great ride!

    Trail Condition: Fat Tires
    Date Posted: 02-10-2013 @ 09:41 PM

    Details:  Snow is SOFT and STICKY. Don't waste your time with skinnies until it is packed in and frozen over. Saw a couple guys out there today on 2.whateva's having a horrible time. They made it about 100y in before they walk out.

    Fat tires are GTG, don't expect a fast ride if you are blazing trail. The stuff ridden over packed nicely and was faster.

    Conditions subject to change, hopefully it freezes up sometime this week.

    Details:  Road from Mendota to the ferry bridge and back on 26x2.1 Nokian Extremes. Trail needs packing from Mendota to 494. Very slow going, especially as it warmed up. Fat bikes seemed to do better. Packed and fast from 494 to the ferry bridge. It felt almost like dirt; until it didn't and I ran into a tree.
