Wintry Spring afternoon mountain bike ride

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  It may be spring on paper but it still feels like winter!  And I wore shorts today, too!

The Connecticut Chapter of New England Mountain Bike Association had their first chapter meeting ride of the 2013 riding season at Wadsworth Falls State Park and it was definitely tights weather.

Of course it wouldn't be a CT NEMBA meeting ride if we didn't call in the pizza from the trail.

Since I arrived late I met Paula and Glenn out on the trail.  After calling in the pizza we headed over to the Taco Bell Trail.  We call it that because of the house next to the trail (pictured above) has a Mexican, Mission Style roof that reminds me of the original Taco Bells out west that were Mission Style with the terracotta roof tiles.

Then it was out the edge of the park and head back.  Wadsworth Falls is not a very big park but it's 5 minutes away from where we have our chapter meetings, so it's convenient.

Despite the cold I had a pretty good ride and that's all that matters.  The one thing I couldn't find was that unmarked file that goes from 4 Corners down to the Yellow trail.
