    Today the woods were calling me so it was time to check out the trails. The fun part was I spent almost 50% of the time play on ice. I tried my best to put some crack in the ice, had a blast.

    The Kenda tire has good grip, but like any tire without studs on sheer smooth ice you've got to ride with light hands and go where the ice wants to take you. I'm finding it a lot easier riding on the ice with my 29plus bike and fat bike because I have a wider tire contact area which is a tad easier on the smooth ice.
