Sand my road.

It does not take long before any sand applied gets pushed to the side and you are back to glare ice. Sand at intersections and steep angled streets needs to be applied VERY HEAVY, not sprinkled as I have witnessed pretty much all the time (cost savings)...............SALT!

Grabbed my fat bike and been riding back into the bush. Love it! Not as much adrenaline as my trail bike but still a good time and what a work out. Not to mention how quiet and peaceful it is and the beauty of the snow in the trees.
