On the Spot at Collis P Huntington State Park

Riding at Upper Paugussett and George C Waldo tends to be milk toast compared to Collis P Huntington State Park's single track.  What makes Huntington harder, in my opinion, is that the trails are much more technical and less buff thus making Wednesday's RAW ride (Ride After Work) a great test for the bike.

Some Helmet Cam action from the ride

Starting out, I was still having some gearing issues but they seem to go away when I tightened the knob on the SRAM shifter.  Still getting used to the bike and some issues on a few rock ups and technical ascents in the Big Burn, but what really surprised me was on all the big climbs in the back of the park, I cleaned!  Even the go around on the white trail.  I have never been able to ride that section and today I made it.  All I can say is I love the bike!

Ride = Blue Track
Not a very long ride, almost 4 miles.  Spent too much time socializing.  Still fun times at a great place.  Of course when my new trail is done riding the back 40 will no longer be an attraction.
