Comments
Comments: Patches of significant ice starting around .5 miles and increasing in scale and frequency for about 2 miles. After that ice mostly surrenders to a cruisey compacted snow sidewalk with sporadic sections of significant ice. All very doable with light traction. We were glad we brought our cheap beater spikes since it was a mix of rock, ice, and snow.
