    Traction is good, even with the snow. Just be careful on the ice. We have 3 inches of crust and it rides like a dream.

    I have Nokian studs. Should I use them?

    No snow on the cape. ToT is clear no ice.

    I have Nokians too but I did not mount them. The conditions were quite good even without them.

    We have a very active cycling club on the Cape in summer. I am the only bent so I would love to have another Killer B join us.
    I'll let you know if I can get to the cape.

    Where is Wompy?? I'm in NH and my riding buds and I are looking to make a road trip south. Rideable snow pack is perfect, as we all own a set of studs (Nokian Freddies Revenz for me). 3" of crust sounds just perfect!

    So there is 3" of crusty snow at Wompy? This could be a bummer.

    Just got back from 3 hours in Wompy. Rode with studded tires, but they are not needed. I was amazed at how much bare ground there was and what snow was there, wasn't slippery. The other 2 riders had regular tires.

    I don't know the area very well, but from the main parking lot, we rode down the paved road about 1/2 mile then took a left on a trail that had a MTBing sign. From there is was almost all singletrack with a lot of rocky trails.
    My group are all 60yrs old and intermediate riders, so we found these trails challenging and perfect for us.
