Decided to bike Guelph Lake after a bit of a break due to ever changing weather. Short of it, there was lots of snow, followed by warm temperatures above freezing, and finally freezing temperatures. End result is lots of ice.
The parking lot, double tracks, city trails, sidewalks, and Guelph Lake single tracks were all icy. Thanks goodness for studded tires!
Outside of the ice, most trails were good. Large debris from the ice storm has been cleared. Most notable the large downed trees near the Guelph Lake trailhead were removed.
The less trafficked trails (i.e. Homestead), on the other hand, were in poor shape. Snow was too thick to bike through. Fatter tires would of really helped; but given the abundance of slick ice, studded tires were a better option.
