    Sat : 8AM : Start from Green Arrow

    click this link to see the green arrow

    Lots of pedalling, some up, some down, some rocks, some roots, not an incredible amount of stopping.

    I expect to be near this green arrow ten-ish, if anyone interested for a shorter ride connection.

    And while I am dubious of the ability, would it really be a nice saturday of self-flaggelation-on-trial if I didn't say it would be possible to finish off around this green arrow if there's still any ability to pedal remaining. Say, maybe around 2:30 pm or so.

    I think we need to get a double Turing test to make sure you're both not synthetic personalities. :P

    Ride was just at 4 hours 30 end-2-end, total of about 2600 ft of climbing, just under 19 miles total distance for me and Chriffer ( we did a final climb of about a mile that Nanker had to pass up because of time limitation.





    Click for Google Earth file or GPX Tracklog file.

    Nanker did seem to enjoy the day.







    Interesting seeing the lake mostly frozen, and hearing the slow thunder of the ice cracking.









    Of course, why do Chriffer and I seem to find the covered bridges in our ride, we almost had to backtrack to get around but were able to pass without damage even if we did leave the safety bars a-swingin'

    Thanks guys for showing and rolling, great ride.

    Now, to find another five or ten miles of trail out there next time I go. And some more climbs. And maybe some suspension.

    Or not.

    psst. I was the only one rolling a non-FS bike Jeff. ;^)

    Well, i'm not precisely against putting a nice suspension fork on the bike you got a good condition 80mm 29er fork for lend - say around six or nine months or so?
