To start the Memorial Day Weekend right Scott rode to my house and then we drove up to Bridgewater to meet Mike for a 40+ mile road ride to Kent Falls for a beer. Descending from Bridgewater into Roxbury our average speed was 21 mph and Mike joked about calling it quits.
The weather was overcast with darker clouds off to the west and the forecast said 50% chance of rain around 7 PM.
but it's hard up here to avoid dirt roads so you just suck it up and hope you don't hit a sharp rock and get a flat
I had the Neversink Wheat, which was light, low alcohol and tasted great
Mike had his favorite, Petals Farmhouse Ale
It was 5:45 so we packed up and got ready to roll and it started to sprinkle.
We decided to take a shorter route back to Bridgewater which meant riding dirt roads for over 2 miles from Route 202 almost to Route 109. We ended up riding more dirt roads than I wanted to road bikes.
Crossing Route 109 onto Ridge Road it really started to come down and it wasn't until we got to Route 67 did the rain finally abate!
