I had a short spin on my bike around Twin Ponds today. The trails were great! Fast and only a little bit of snow.
A snow flurry (2 cm) began during the start of the ride. Temperature ranged from -4 °C to -10 °C.
The ground of the Pines trail and Hardwood (1 & 2) trails were frozen solid, with only 1 mm of snow covering them. No ice. It was a rare winter opportunity for the Hardwoods to be ridable. However, I only had time to cycle a small portion of them.
The ponds are starting to freeze up again, but it is not safe. The ice is very thin.
As usual the trail users were friendly. Met a couple of hikers and one other cyclist.
The long term weather forecast is also looking good. More snow and falling temperatures are forecast for next week. With a high of -8 °C starting Sunday.
