Wasn't any ice about cycling into town from Lucan today but not sure what it would be like at higher altitude.

The worst place for ice on Ticknock is the top section of the "Metro" trail at the highest point where its also quite exposed.

Trails under the trees are usually the last to ice up so just drop into the trees or lower down the hill etc

yes!  Thats exactly where it was bad last friday,  on the flat bit leading back to that home run..
huge icy puddles everywhere and really slippy..


but the rest of it was perfect.  8) 8)
