    Cyride shut down

    The snow/ice is bad enough that Cyride has completely shut down service. I spent 30 minutes in my car making a loop from Haber to University to Stange and back into Freddy. Roads are slick!!

    Re: Cyride shut down

    Interesting. I'm a CyRide driver and we've driven through some pretty heavy snowstorms and icestorms, and still not had to shut down. I know there's been enough snow to cover the ground this evening and my roommate said it was slick outside, but it's interesting that it has been enough to shut down service...

    Re: Cyride shut down

    Question - I was planning on driving from Des Moines to Ames here in about an hour...are the roads bad enough to keep me from making the trip?

    Re: Cyride shut down

    well im in ankeny and its not bad here but obviously its not good in ames


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I'm assuming 35 and 30 are fine as the DOT was out on my way home today, but inside the City of Ames, as usual, is horrible right now. I think you will be fine until you get off the highway, than take it easy...

    DOT says everything is OK on 30 and 35...Iowa DOT Travel Information Service

    However, those were last updated at 5 PM, and Ames got the majority of the snow between 5 and 5:30.
