Lakefront Trail Report 2/18

I rode to downtown on the Trail at about 6:30 p.m. with heavy wet snow falling. The Trail was in good condition and the Oak Street Bend had some ice but there was pretty good path through that area.

On the way home at about 10:00 p.m. I didn't even try to take the trail as the streets had a coating of ice over them anyplace where cars had not been regularly driving. I'm certain that the Trail was covered with a coating of ice as well. The Park District should be out to salt early in the morning (usually around 6-6:30 a.m.) so that should help a lot. Please be careful, however, as the Trail may still be very slippery as well as side streets.
