    aka perfect weather and soil conditions to fine tune some trails and features, but I didn’t say that.

    Guaranteed to be 100% un-rideable to day, in case you were wondering 🙂

    The river was just below the trails south of the bloor viaduct. Big rains last night, so probably nice & icy tomorrow morning.

    Fingers crossed for upcoming frozen sand paper and not fossilized stupidity. With the cleared trails and subzero temps we could be in for some excellent early morning conditions for the weekend before it gets warm and rainy again next week.

    Had a quick look at some of the Don trails this morning. Some sections are solidified and grippy, but there is too much thawed mud to ride.

    I’m hoping the overnight sub-freezing temperatures will firm everything up. I’ll take a look again tomorrow morning if it is as cold as projected.

    Hey everyone, new guy here. Took a walk along the flats this afternoon, conditions were pretty firm for the most part. There were a couple mildly squishy sections, but nothing too bad. There is however a new fence that has been put up clean across the trail under the Millwood road bridge. Looks like welded stainless steel mesh this time, not the usual chain link.

    I wonder at what point the rail road will have “donated” enough material for the construction of a retaining wall below the section of trail in question. Considering no attempts have been made at the community efforts to stay off the rail line elsewhere?

    North West Don is frozen pretty near solid with a fresh dusting of snow this morning. as long as we keep this -6C outside it ought to be good to go now for the weekend.

    I wonder how many fences it would cost to put in a proper crossing point over the tracks?

    Did a quick recon ride from pottery road this morning. It was too soft to ride anywhere the sun was shining on the trail. The flats was better, but still soft in sections.

    I think if you go in really early in the day things will be all solid.

    Too much thawed mud today, and that fence!

    Fantastic conditions early this morning on a full West Don tour. Freezing in the wind but pleasant down in the valley; warm enough to start melting south facing trails by 10 am! As always, start early if it’s gonna be sunny.

    Fence beneath Millwood Bridge is definitely next level but still no Trump Wall – mildly inconvenient to get around but no border patrol. Yet. Might be a good time to sign this petition: https://www.change.org/p/marc-garneau-guarantee-safe-crossing-on-railways

    As of 10:30 the trails are frozen and so are my toes. Did Pottery to Cricket tree – then Boo up to Woods Gundy – all hard and rideable. Lots of footprints and tire marks on the south facing slopes. Ridge had several CX tracks and one really deep Mtb bike track (what a doofus) Perfect until the sun melts the top layer.( which has already started!)

    The only thing worse than freezing cold temps and sticky sloppy glop would be super hot & humid conditions with icy trails, which I think is almost impossible. #MarchIsTheWorst
