    With all this wonderful weather where to ride?

    I don't want to damage the trails on the Hillside STAor at Kincaid STA, any one have any ideas on where I could get in a ride today since i have a day off?

    Hillside STA trails

    Hillside trails are rideable but would only be enjoyable with studded fat tires right now. Conditions vary from soft to crust to bare ice, even a little dirt showing. It's cold enough, I don't think you'd be damaging these trails right now.

    I rode the coastal trail yesterday with studded tires and it was great. if you do the section from Pt. Woronzof to Kincaid, it almost feels like you are in the woods. Not sure how a fat tire bike would do as the trail was pretty much glare ice.

    All fat and no studs sounds pretty sketchy on glare ice.

    Rode all around the lower hillside and the STA trails yesterday on fat tires. Yes, they're icy, but still very ridable and fun. Don't let the recent thaw keep you in...

    1/2/13 Update.... We rode the hillside portion of the upcoming Frosty Bottom race. We both had studded 29er's, and it was still super sketchy. Hard, slick, shiny ice everywhere. If the Frosty doesn't get postponed, there's going to be some serious carnage on the hillside. Especially for the 50 mile racers coming down rovers. Hopefully conditions change soon.

    yup I rode this afternoon from the far north bicentinial park out tank trail to the JBER gate then back over to Hilltop and back and it was slick enough I walked up and down a couple hills since i didn't have studs. It sure is slick in places.

    just rode hillside STA trails on 26er with studs. 29er would have been better, fat-bike with studs better yet. Wasn't too bad, but too bumped out due to foot traffic when it was soft to be fun.

    I just rode the hillside portion of the frosty. Definitely need some studs. Rovers was sketchy due to the overflow areas. Everything else from Norhern Lights RJP was fast.
