Had a great early morning ride today.  The temps were 27ish when I started, then up to 32 by end of the ride.  The only mud I saw was a short 20 foot patch by the Wolf Road lot.

The rest of the trails had sporadic patches of ice that made for some fun cornering challenges.  Never went down - to spite my best efforts in maintaining as much speed as possible through the corners.  I had a few times where my front tire pushed across some slick patches and slid until I hit the side of the trail.  It's a miracle I didn't go down.

At any rate, I'm wondering if anyone uses studded tires? Or, is that frowned upon?  We used them a lot riding trails like Pontiac Lake, which is/was a state park.

The trails that are currently YELLOW will be turning RED Friday, late morning or early afternoon.  As the ground thaws it becomes soft and slick and easily damaged. If you are going to ride Friday, get it in before 11:00am.

South facing trails will be the first to get hit with the sun and thaw.  Psycho & Turf would be the trails that may stay frozen the longest. 3 Ravines, the South side of Cemetary Hill, and others in that orientation would be the early thawing trails.

Which trails at Palos are the first to thaw in the morning?  Psycho Path and Turf?

I'm heading out to SD for vacation in a few weeks and would like to get a ride or two in. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'll have a car so it doesn't have to be in the immediate area.

I saw on the Palos trail conditions page that the trails were frozen this morning.  So is it safe to say that the first two hours after sunrise should be ok for Palos tomorrow, given present weather forecasts?  Also, is the ground icy at all?  I figured that the ground would be crunchy but not icy tomorrow morning.  Also, is there snow cover there?

Yes to frozen.  Yes to ice.  Only a tiny bit of snow.

In my opinion it's never really safe to assume anything with the freeze/thaw cycle unless the temps are staying below 20 degrees. 

With the recent thaw, rain then snow I'd expect a bunch of ice and as always in the freeze/thaw time of year be ready to hit the multi-track any any point during your ride.
