    has anyone ridden rail trail today?

    I was thinking about riding out to Brantford along the rail trail but would really like a headsup as to whether it's ridable or not. Thanks,

    I can let you know tomorrow after I ride it. Can't expect a more perfect day.
    I'll be on my bike.

    Update:
    Well did not get to leave until 3.. got back home at almost 7.
    My quads and calves feel like post P2A.
    Everythig is fine until 52.
    1/4" to 1/2" of slow going slop after that.
    Definately wait for the next freeze.
    Headwind on the way out did not help.
    Not much help ojn the way back until I crossed 52 either.

    Tough going, but great workout if you can keep pedaling.
    or stupid.. depending on how you want to look at it.

    It was perfect on Tuesday. Hard and clear. Going to be wet and slushy today. Rideable but hope you've got fenders.
    Was out last Saturday in the big melt and it was not bad going up but coming back down with the higher speeds, it was messy. Shoes were soaked, lots of bike cleanup after.
