First Bike Commute of 2018

On the Tuesday after that huge rainstorm I met Gavin down at the intersection of Huntingtown Road and Meadowbrook Road and we rode together down towards Easton.  It was much colder than I was expecting and feet froze. All the local streams were flooding but the most impressive one was the Aspetuck River off of Wells Hill Road.

Thirsty Thursdays: Jack's Abby Smoke & Dagger

I hope I don't sound biased but you can't go wrong with anything from Jack's Abby. I have had black lagers before but this one is totally outstanding. This is kind of beer that goes well just about everything.  Especially after a good ride.

Please let the Gussy Trails dry 24 to 48 hours

That was a lot of rain today (4-16-2018). At the request of the land managers, most importantly the CT DEEP, please stay off the trails until they dry. Probably 24-48 hours in this case. We've had recent complaints from land managers about rutted trails, trail braiding, etc. that can jeopardize everyone's access.

Looks like the footbridge at the Pond Brook Connector Trail needs a little TLC!

Winter is back?

Last week I met with Paula and we walked my re-route at the Mulikin Trail and she suggested some changes.  Going back Sunday morning and incorporated those and had to make a few more because the ground in which she said to move the trail to was just too soft.  Bucky met me up on the trail and helped do some cutting. I probably have to go back one more time to finalize the final route and then work can begin.

Roubaix to Brew: Kent Falls Brewery

This year's first Roubaix to Brew began on a beautiful spring morning. Andy, Jeff, and Jason rode in from their houses, Mike parked at the Brewery and rode down to meet us, and Paul and I drove.  We left Roxbury Market at 9 AM and headed down Judd's Bridge.  

On the way down I hit a bump and immediately following my saddle felt loose.  Riding up Tunnel Road and onto the old Shepaug Rail Road right of way it was perfect.  There was even still ice in the tunnel from this past winter and the temperature inside was at least 30 degrees cooler.
