    Helmet Cam from the Hudson Valley NY

    At the end of a decent ride we almost packed it up at the parking lot, but I rallyed them on for another 20 minutes to ride this twisty loop trail called Mercury Trail at the Taconic-Hereford MUA aka the 909.

    It's a good warm up or cool down loop, not many technical features(one big roller), but plenty of twists and turns.

    A trail runners marathon was being held there the same day and this was the only time we came across runners and a few other bikers, normallly you don't see many people out during a ride.

    Everyone was polite and friendly, just many different people out there doing their thing and having a good time.
    A odd moment was when a shirtless runner with Band-Aids covering his nipples asked if we had any Glide or Vaseline......
    I felt bad for the guy, but it was a funny moment.

    This is the whole trail with very few edits.
    I'm trying to film each trail for when the wintertime blues come around next December.

    Looks like a great trail. I'm down in the Buffalo area and wish our trials were that dry! It's raining right now come come to think of it. Oy!
