Eventually it will warm up

Hey experts:

Which is a better winter ride, the Fox River Trail or the I&M Canal State Trail? Or both, but pretend you only have one good weekend until spring starts flooding both? Or neither, because it would actually be an excellent opportunity to see the rest of the Burnham Greenway or the Old Plank Road Trail?

Decisions, decisions.

I guess the FRT (I know no one calls it that for obvious reasons) is better for winter. I usually prefer the I&M, but it's probably snowier (more shade and fewer users) or muddier (crushed stone instead of asphalt) than the FRT, depending on the temperature. Oh, and riding into a westerly wind could get old fast if it's only 45 degrees. As for the OPRT, I think that since you like prairies, you should wait until the numerous restorations along the way are in bloom.

D'oh, I wasn't even thinking about westerly headwinds. I'm so bad at this.

Hey Jennifer,

Just can't resist the temptation to give you a Latin proverb very much related to their biking philosophy:

"Si fractum non sit,noli id reficere"
(It it isn't broken, don't fix it)

And what about that one?
"Nill illigitimi carborundum"
(Do not let the bastards grind you down)
