In the "Ice Box" on the Little Rock side of the BDB, there ain't no sunshine on a winter afternoon.
Just move on over to the North Shore, where the sun shines all day long!!
In winter, riders often comment about the temperature difference between the North Little Rock and Little Rock sides of the trail. On the Little Rock side, the low southern sun is blocked for much of the day by the ridge running parallel to the trail. In North Little Rock, it is open river to the south and the sun shines all day long. Not only is it more sunny, but the pavement stays warmer and the difference can be apparent even when the sun isn't shining. Come on over to the sunny side!
