Got out for an early morning spin on Subnet, which is one of the premier trails in the St. John's area friday morning. It was so much fun that I felt compelled to take some pics and post them here. I don't ride it all that often as I live on the other side of town and tend to mix riding with trail work at Richmond Hill on most of my rides. The relative smoothness and speed of Subnet is a welcome change from the relentless tech of RH. The city removed the trail's namesake; the WWII net that was strung across the narrows to prevent U-Boats from getting into the harbour. That sucks because it was cool to look at and a good story, but the trail is pure awesome.
Dropping into the big descent. This section wouldn't be out of place on a DH trail!
View out to the ocean with obligatory fishing boat.
This is as smooth as it gets on the Avalon peninsula.
Sage advice in pink spray paint on the bridge: "Don't Fall" with an arrow pointing at the bog hole on the left.
Last time I rode the trail the rock before the bridge was a sheet of ice and I was on it and committed by the time I figured that out. I made it, but barely.
View out towards Cape Spear from the highest point on the trail. It was really hazy that day for some reason.
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.
