Rode Torn Shirt later in the day yesterday. Trail was great until mile 4. There was lots of moisture until mile 5.

Also, if you lost your water bottle on Torn, I picked it up and left it at the trailhead, by the maps.

Sounds similar to my report today

Rode Brighton Rec Appleton + Torn shirt from 10am today Thursday 12/26. More greasy areas than I expected, specifically between 4.0 and 5.5 on torn .
Overall not a whole lotta mud, just some splatter here and there

Murray Lake trail has a BIG tree down 1/3 mile from Bishop Lk Rd, Torn Shirt/Murray Lk Trail and all its loops slick in spots but good enough to ride for sure.. Zombies were just coming out as I left about noon..
When was the first bicycle race?
When the second one was built !!!

Trail was in great shape today. Parking lot starting to get crowded mid-afternoon.

Sorry forgot to post sooner. Saturday there was a tree down on TS just before 2.5M I believe would need chainsaw.

Late November 2020 there was discussion on the return bridge from Lost loop to Murrary, a guy hit it fast and slipped.

The return trail feed is at an angle, too much .
I stated in that post

Yesterday I rode and seems a reroute so bike hits the bridge at 90 degrees is easy.

Image

You’d approach the bridge straight like this, not 45 degree angle like current.
I see someone took chainsaw and cut the bridge .. not really sure how that will stop freeze ...

Yeah it's sketch wet or snow. I think it would be better if the trails joined together ~10 yards before to allow a straight approach and it's 2-way on the bridge anyhow.

Thinking about riding tomorrow. How's the trail doing with the light snow? Get out and enjoy, or stick to indoor training?
