Did you know that at Millers Pond State Park they have these really cool Port-a-jons not only fit you but your bike, too? It was amazing. I could sit and enjoy my pre-ride constitutional while my trusted steed was parked right next to me.
Most of the CT NEMBA board met today, after work, for a ride at Millers Pond State Park in Durham, CT. We first did a warm up loop east of the pond and half way through, Paula broke a chain. I whipped out my Trail Ambassador tools and repaired her chain with a quick link. Back at the lot, we picked up Eric who was running late and headed off on the red trail!
What a trail! I think the red trail is also called the Cross Country trail but what it really should be called is the Cross Stuntry trail. Awesome singletrack! Lots of rollers, rock climbs, quick ups, up-and-overs, and skinnies galore! I got to meet another CT Mountain Biking legend, Salem Malawzi (pictured below, at least the back of him). This guy was riding an old style mountain bike, a Schwin in fact, rigid and single speed!
