A little dirt and a haunted road on the road ride

I usually take a rest day on Mondays but since I didn't really ride very hard over the weekend I went out for a road ride with Scott.

Southern Fairfield County doesn't have many through dirt roads so when I found out Pearmain Road in Shelton was dirt I had to ride it.

It's always good omen when there are cows on the side of the road

Pearmain Road starts out as paved but when it stops being paved it looks like this

I was wearing my new Team RWB (Red White and Blue) cycling sox along with the team kit

Scott joined me on his road bike and was having fun trying to stay out of the mud

Pearmain dumps out onto Saw Mill City Road and according to this blog this road is considered haunted. We didn't see or hear anything haunting but if there is anything to be scared about you might want to consider the nearly 1 mile, 5% climb heading back towards Monroe.

On the way back we rode up the rail trail
