    Are some of the foothills clear today?

    Came out after doing some cardio on trainer at Golds and it's like summer outside! Well, just feels like it anyway now after what we got last 3 weeks.

    Nice outside!

    Check it out here for the official scoop;

    I would say it is too muddy given the rain and snow over the last week or so.
    Ride the bike.

    Even the rocky trails won't be good for the next day or so... Unless we get a good overnight freeze...

    walked up some of bobs this evening. from the dam on out to the street, watch out for lots of ice.
    the middle should be ok before it warms up.

    I checked out the velopark this afternoon and there were still some long muddy sections on the Junkyard trail, so I went home. I didn't look at the rest of the trails.
    I don't understand how there can be mud when temperatures are 25 degrees. Does mud freeze at a lower temp than water?

    Likewise, I went for a run yesterday evening near the velo park after everything had frozen again. There was just enough sun in yesterday to soften up the south exposures even though the temps were <32. Doesn't take much sunshine to warm the frost in the ground.

    Rode lower Hulls yesterday afternoon and it was pretty good. Just a couple of soft sections but not enough to to do any trail damage. And a little ice in the sections that don't get much sun. Saw a couple other bikes and a lot of dog walkers.
