Newtown Roubaix

In honor of the famed Paris-Roubaix, Gavin, Brad and I decided to do a little mixed terrain ride around Newtown Sunday morning and then watch the end of the race. 

It was foggy and a little chilly leaving my house but that all changed when the sun finally burned off the fog and things started heating up

From Brad's house, First Dirt was on Beaver Dam road and then we hit the horse trails at Cherry Grove

We worked our way into the open space section of Cherry Grove which has a bit more singletrack and then rode through Fosdick to the abandoned section of Sugar Hill Road. 

A farmer just finished haying the back field as we came out of the woods.

Greeted the cows at Ferris Acres

and then we headed back on Head of Meadow Road

It was still cool out and didn't warm up as fast as I thought it would

So the arm warmers stayed on and we headed over to Fairfield Hills

We stayed off the roads by riding the grass trails and then road the dirt road behind the Horse Guard and then climbed up the side of Yahoo Hill and rode the singletrack adjacent to Nunnawauk Meadows.

We hit Bryan Lane, the dirt road that runs behind Stop and Shop

and then over to Wash Brook Road

We found Maltbie Road had been chip sealed and coated with tar which is totally unnerving because it always looks wet but is not

Back at Brad's we had beers and watched Sonny Colbrelli win the Paris-Roubaix
