I finally got to ride a rail trail today now that the snow melted down below a couple inches of icepack. It was 30deg outside but felt warmer, then I came across a large bulldog mama with pups. Likely from the farm nearby, and she decided she wanted to own the trail that I had to pass through. It took a couple odd manuvers to get past her and a couple more to keep her off my wheel, but worked to motivate me to go farther. Normally I would have gone out and back on the same trail for a work break, but the guardian of the trail turned it into a large loopback of road riding to go back to the car.

Good ride though
