Snow tires needed today

Hunter ready to roll
FABB member Hunter McCleary came to our place today to help with some FABB bookkeeping. We weren't sure if he would be able to ride from his house in Vienna to ours in Reston.

Here he is getting ready to leave our place. His hybrid bike has studded snow tires but Hunter said that the W&OD Trail, which he used for most of his route, was mostly clear of snow. At the usual spot just west of Hunter Mill Road it was snow/ice covered but other than that he had no real problems. It sure helps to have snow tires.

Here were Hunter's comments after his ride home from Reston to Vienna:

"The trail was mostly wet with some long slightly crunchy stretches. There were several 30-40 yard stretches of mostly crunchy snow and the bridges were all snow.

"The question is what will the overnight do to the wet stretches?"
