V2R2 - Veterans Day Ride

I took a different spin (pun intended) for my annual Veterans Day Ride.  In the past I spent the whole day mountain biking in some location at least an hour away from home and enjoying a few cold ones afterwards. This time, however, I went for a road ride.  I invited my brother-in-law from NYC who had the day off as well. 

Kent, Connecticut makes a great jump off point for this kind of ride and I am definitely going to do this again.  While Skiff Mountain is a monster climb the back way up through Macedonia State Park is dirt and you know me, I like dirt!

In Salisbury, we said hello to some Vets.

And then the fun began!
Mt Riga Road.


Up, up, up and into Mt Washington State Forest!

Glorious riding, climbing and more climbing!
