    Sunday's ride...

    This is a pretty good option for a ride on Green Mountain when the Wildcat trail is under water. Start at the Wildcat parking area and ride west on the Holly highway .2 of a mile and turn south up Rock Quarry Road. When the road forks take the right fork and climb to the summit (about a mile and a quarter) to the 1200 foot elevation. On the descent take the trail that heads north at .3 of a mile. It goes for about a mile before connecting into an old Green Mountain service road. An out and back is the best option for avoiding water. It's about a 9 mile ride that takes about 70 minutes to complete. Good climb and a chance to wind it up in your tallest gears and chase your shadow out on the service roads. From my shadow image, it may look like I'm coasting on the service roads (1:07) but I'm actually spinning out my 42x11 (the roads are just slightly downhill). Video starts with the descent from the summit.
