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!
