Re: Riding for fun and fitness out the back door

In reply to this post by Sick Bird Rider
Like SBR says, every trail leads somewhere.  That hit home yesterday afternoon while running on a bunch of unmarked trails in the Cape Cod Natl Seashore near P-Town (we're on vacation this week).  When my wife asked if I had meant to be out as long as I was (an hour), I told her I was unintentionally exploring for longer than anticipated.  She responded "Oh, you got lost."  

Every trail leads somewhere has also been my motto exploring the K-P mountain biking trails at home, and I've been discovering / exploring new trails literally everytime I ride.  Since posting my report last month  I've found quite a bit more singletrack.  I snapped a few cell phone pics on my ride last Saturday morning, before we headed out to Cape Cod.

If anybody's interested in a "tour" let me know - it'd probably be easier to show than describe the options there.

Blue Toes and Beth must be long lost sisters. I get that kind of reaction all the time.

Maybe Blue Toes should join the Hiking Hotties.

Matt, nice place to ride.

It's almost cold enough to snow and there is/are rain and thunderstorms in the Hinterlands. Time to think about Fat BIkes!



Oh, and if you are into bike maintenance (or actually, if you are not), check out this this blog:

Never forget, young Padawan, that age and experience will always triumph over youthful exuberance.

Re: Riding for fun and fitness out the back door

Got a 1.5 hour ride in yesterday (Sat), before it started snowing again.  Skies were gray, temps in the 30s, conditions were wet leaves over mud (actually not too much mud) with pockets of Thursday night's snow.  In a word, it was awesome.  I think it was my third time out on my new bike, and I guess I'm getting more comfortable with the new ride.  We picked up another 2-3 inches of snow last night, and today its sunny and beautiful.  Hope to get out for another ride this afternoon.  Gonna order a light for some night riding too.

Crappy cell phone photo:  There's a trail somewhere under those leaves.
