Recent Trail Reports Along Route

Root Canal

Trail report: temperature -3, tire choice studded surly bud and lous Root canal and back breaker were great and running fast. Laurier park trails were really good. Belgravia river trail had quite a bit of ice on it, and has gotten really eroded in the last year(it’s been forever since I’ve ridden it). Victoria secret was ice and frozen mud, this will get muddy fast with a touch of sun. Lovers lane was great, probably the best section I rode today. Museum descent was fine but I flicked mud in my face where it opens up at the end, you could see where people went for a slippery mud bath. I think basically every double wide gravel had very icy sections. Most of the paved trails I saw were a little better but not much.
