    My ride today (No love 56K)

    It rained like a bastard yesturday so I had to put off my ride until today. Started off by not finding my gloves and having to do a haisty unclip right into a pile of dog**** (lucky the Shimano soes wash off easily and that there was a brook nearby).... After that, everything was roses






    Out of the woods and into Millers Pond (what's left of it since it dried out decades ago)




    Great fun.....

    I see it's still winter for you too (bare trees). Crazy weather is april already! Looks like a great place to ride. How long was the trail?

    Cheers guys:

    Yeah, it's still kinda cold here... we got a half an inch of snow on the ground Wednesday (melted within an hour), and it snowed a bit yesturday. The ride is about 4 miles there and back.

    Where in CT is this? My buddy and I hit Case Mountain (near Manchester) on Sunday. It's a pretty good time.

    Looks nice. You've inspired me to take some pictures today when I go ride. Of course, your ride looks nicer than mine

    The trail is in Waterford... about an hours ride from Manchester

    The funny thing is... I had no idea that these trails were even there and I live 5 minutes away by bike.

    I always wonder how people get these pictures of themselves? Are you using the timer? I always ride alone and see all these pics of people and wonder how they came about.

    The squirrel would have no part of it..... 10 second timer and a stack of rocks worked for me.

    Once again, thanks for all the compliments guys

    That trail looks beautiful. I love the woods, its so theraputic for me to just ride in the woods.
