The start of winter was so mild, and then we got hit with all of winter through the entirety of February. March didn’t have a very nice start, but hopefully it will become more like a normal late winter. At least the consistent cold means the pathways haven’t gotten icy! And, now -10 C feel balmy.
There was a HUGE flooded section on the pathway in lower Bowmont Park because the new stormwater settling pond overflowed. Conditions after the temperature rises probably won’t improve, so I’m taking the high road through Varsity on the way home tonight, and probably for the rest of the week.
Anyone been up Quarry trail by Shaganappi golf course recently? I see a bit of strava traffic kicking back up there again. Wondering whether it’s fit for a cyclocross bike even if I have to walk a few sections.
My first commute this year, the paved pathway downhill by the golf course was pretty dicey this morning, even on foot. Hopefully another few days of this weather and we’ll have bare pavement and Quarry will be back in action.
