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.....

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
