    Fall colour in the Short Hills

    Everybody else is doing fall colour threads, so I can too. If you're on 56k (seriously is there anybody that still uses dial up??), or still using a 1024x768 display, you might as well give up now.

    It was kind of wet, and I was having fun clearing some pretty technical sections while clutching a $2K kit in my right hand My bike is the perfect colour for fall riding...camouflage!! But now I'm not happy that my bike is muddy.
    The last two are actually Sulphur Springs...and I actually drove there, but I was wearing my bike shoes to climb into the ditch, so it still counts

    Anyways, pictures.

    Not sure what you mean by kit

    Anyway, nice to see that you got out this weekend as well. The colour of your frame really does look great against the backdrop of fallen leaves.

    that is what i thought, but surly you could find a better way to carry your stuff than in your hand

    i always appreciate the quality of your pictures though. it is easy to see that they are not from some cheap-*** digi cam like mine

    lol I had a backpack, I just got tired of taking it in and out when I saw a good shot. When I got out to the clearings I put the camera away and went for it.
    Cheap digicams have their uses, I still have a couple kicking around.

    I was thinking of hitting Short Hills today, but since I've never been there and I was going to ride solo I went elsewhere. Is it hard to navigate?

    I hope I can get out there before the snowfall...nice pics!

    Thanks for sharing!

    You can get lost, but most of the trails end up in the same place eventually.
    Here's a map: http://www.friendsofshorthillspark.c...lsMapprint.jpg
    Trails 1,2, and 7 are the 'bike legal' paths.
    I'm only a few minutes from the park if you need someone to ride with...I'm away next weekend but maybe the weekend after?

    Hey zed,

    Thanks for the link to the map.

    There's a group I ride with (Defiant MTB on Facebook) and we're always looking at new places to ride. Maybe in the next couple of weeks we'll plan a trip down that way and you can join us.

    Looking forward to hitting up Short Hills...
