First ride of 2015. A leisurely spin around the Arboretum Park in Boston. Not a very long one but a nice ride nonetheless.

Neal,

Funny you should mention the Minuteman Trail. That was my regular ride when I lived in Davis Square back in the mid-1990's. I haven't done the whole trail in a while. Great ride.
