    Mansfield Trails

    Went to Mansfield today (Feb 5) to ride the fattie. But after hitting the ground hard twice due to ice I gave up and walked the trails but even that was a challenge! There was just enough snow to cover the ice so you couldn't see it, but its hard! I would of been better off on my skates.
    This is a warning to anyone who is riding this weekend, you may need studded tires.

    there is one thing constant about southern ontario winters... ice... you pack down a trail, it will turn to ice.

    used studded tires for the past 25 years riding the winter trails.

    unless studded tires are not allowed on the trails you ride. it is in my opinion one of the best purchase you can make for winter trail riding. i even use studded tires on my commute.
