Snow is Melting - a Lot
With the snow melting, it means standing water. Sure glad I have the fenders on the hybrid!
Unfortunately, some places the standing water covers a layer of ice. That's what we have in the tunnel under the railroad on the Lake Manawa Trail. This afternoon there was a good 2 inches of water over the ice. Very slippery walking the bike through the tunnel.
Still have to watch it under bridges - specially those of us with slick, skinny tires. Otherwise Lake Manawa, Indian Creek, and Western Historic Trails are in good shape.
Rode from Wabash Trace Trailhead to the Trail Center. Westbound via Lake Manawa. Return via S 16th and Harry Langdon.
Overdressed today. Could have shed a layer. Bright sunshine and mid 50s. Breeze from the SSW. But who could complain - its only mid February.
