After just getting back for the spring semester, I decided to take a ride over to the Preserve for a little after class spin. It was horrible. The entire place is a big frozen rut. In areas not rutted and massacred the ground seems to be elevated so that whenever you ride over the ground your front tire sinks down and stops. I managed my way through nearly 3 miles of crunching, bouncing, and spinning and decided that I had had enough. Guess I'll have to wait until spring or a nice thaw before that place is ridable again.
