On Sunday's (5/3) Norbrook Farms Roubaix, the route used Westside Road, Lover's Lane, and Elmore Road, which are three main dirt roads through Norfolk, CT. We found them chip sealed. It was a different kind of chip seal that we have never seen before. The rock material was marble sized and still gave the effect of riding a gravel road. Does this still classify as gravel?
Turning onto Chapel Road we came across this interesting mailbox holder. Kind of overkill for just your mailbox.
Then it started to descend, however
After the bridge I discovered that we were crossing the old Central New England Railroad right of way. Looking west, it appears rideable
not even two miles,
Eventually we worked our way towards Great Forest but there was pretty significant hill to climb first
We had lunch in Norfolk
I wanted to ride to the top of Haystack Mountain but as you can see, the clouds were moving in and according the weather report it was supposed to start raining at 2 PM.
Webber turns to dirt and it's a long climb, too. Turning onto Barry Road, which is nice to ride initally
