    Where does the loop start?

    How do you get on the loop itself from NB Parking Lot? Just wanting to ride it in the sunshine, not race it. thx.

    Good job! Snaux Bros Loop

    Directions to the Loop for I/13 ride at your own pace ride
    Actually, its very simple, go down the Tank Trail for about 1/2 mile or where you see orange flagging is tied, take that left and just follow the trail and keep and eye out for the orange flagging ....... the loop dumps you out at the red gate at NB.

    The Frigid Bits Events are viewed by some as an opportunity to race, to ride at a recreational pace for fitness, a chance to ride some place new or if not new, to ride it for the first time in the winter time or some view it as an opportunity to have some fun on a bike regardless of how slow or fast we ride; some Frigid Bits riders who read this may want to jump in and reply ................ hope to see and everyone else you Saturday Night

    Kinda soft

    Just started the loop and found it very soft. The tank trail, rovers & tour trail are quite nice but the bike was laying down a 4" furrow on the race trail. There may have been a harder packed strip to one side - didn't really check it out for too far as it just looked like a slog. Your mileage may vary . . . and it is likely better for those of less grand proportions.

    The middle

    The firmer part of the trail generally speaking is down the middle.
    What wheel and tire set up did you use ?

    more Snaux Bro N Fo

    I rode/marked the course tonight around 6pm. It is in good shape and getting faster and more firm with traffic. I would recommend that racers have a light on the bike and also one on your helmet so you can see the flagging as you approach an intersection. If you only have one, the helmet mount would be best. You can get by with anything, though. The trail is best down the center. The Skijor club came through last week with a 4' drag and kind of screwed things up. If you get off to the side it is knee deep, but I was hardly leaving a track down the center with endomorphs.
