I've been traveling for a couple weeks - any chance Island Lake is dry enough to ride? I'm thinking it's still too early, but if it was dry while I was away, maybe there was a shot. Thanks!

Trail is rideable, if not going early in the day skinny may be alright but after it warms i reccomend fat only.

Trail was fine for any tire size last night. 2-3 muddy spots of fairly inconsequential length. Ironically, one of them is right at the start of Blue.

Wow, 70 degrees and sunny. I wasn't sure trails would be ridable but I did both Blue & Yellow and they were perfect with NO mud at all. This was my first trail ride for the season and I was ecstatic. Let the season begin!

Perfect condition. No mud anywhere. No trees down at this time.

Invasive species burn on Blue. Partial detour; probably clear tomorrow but might call first if riding. Yellow all open.

Today was about as perfect as it gets at Island Lake. I actually liked the smell of the burning leaves at the controlled burn area of the blue near RR tracks today.

About 6" tree down on yellow around 4.5m after little log pile on right and just before trail runs along river to your right. It's a stop and carry over since there are a couple branches crossing the trail.

I'm late to the game here. Can someone let me know if this has been cleared?

Tree was still down early this afternoon, both trails were in good condition other than that.. I left just before the rain came, it was booming when I left...
When was the first bicycle race?
When the second one was built !!!
