    I will recon some local trails this weekend to determine if they are rideable. If not, I'm thinking ~15-20 mile dirt road ride with fewer (but non-zero) hills. Kinda hard to find zero hills in Oakland County anyway. :D

      Yesterday's snow, being of the moister variety, should help in terms of trail riding. This opens more possibilities, including Bald Mountain North Unit. It also may close some others like Stony Creek, which will likely be groomed for XC skiing.

      While Bald Mtn N was groomed and very nice, you would likely need a fat bike to really enjoy it. Consequently, I think roads are our best option. Here are a few of my "standard" routes from SCHS for different distances...

      15 Mile: http://goo.gl/maps/pF...­
      20 Mile: http://goo.gl/maps/Dn...­

      Figure on averaging <=10MPH in conditions like these. You can derive exposure times for yourself.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
