    Roseisile Forest it is. Ground may still be hard but it shouldn’t be icy.

    January 2nd Ride. The forecast is for it to remain cold for the next few days so there is a good chance that the snow and ice won’t melt from Ben Aigan in time. If that is the case then we will go to Roseisle forest instead. I’ll make the final decsion about mid-day on Monday
