Maybe I should try groomed trails one of these days.
Sure! Albion Hills has wide groomed trails (for a fee) and Palgrave Forest is ridden often enough that it can be in good shape without grooming. It can be icy some days and the trails are narrower. Dufferin Forest (Airport Rd. parking lot north of Mansfield) is supposed to have excellent grooming.
This was some of the hardest winter riding I’ve done, in the soft sections.
I suppose a nicer wife would have expressed more concern. ;)
