A snowy day at a trailhead
When the roving camera guy stopped by the Walker Ranch trailhead of the Salado Creek Greenway and took the picture, there was no evidence of bicycle tire tracks—only a few footprints. It was a delight to see that someone made a snowman near the trailhead.
Snow began to melt on non-shaded parts of the trail, leaving behind snow and ice patches that can be hazardous to cyclists. A peruse of the web reflected a few things about riding in the snow. One posting said to avoid the salt, sand, and grit; they can damage suspension and gears. Another blog suggested adjusting tire pressure and using flat pedals (not the snap-in types). So, different thoughts.
Our thoughts? Stay home and bring the bike inside out of the elements. Riding in the snow and ice is too risky.
