Good thing I was on my Anyroad bike today because whenever you ride in Northwest Connecticut you are bound to hit a dirt road or two. Mike and I started our ride from his place in Gaylordsville. Along the way, we saw Steve Levine ride past heading up to Front of the Mountain or Mud Pond.
Mike and I continued north on South Kent Road and then decided to ride up Rt 341 (Segar Mountain Road) to Cobble with the intention of hitting the dirt road and riding back to Kent for coffee.
After coffee we headed south and decided to ride back on the dirt road that parallels the Housatonic River.
Mike's front derailleur wasn't working properly and it looked like the battery was dead. Still had 11 gears to choose from and where we were heading the big ring wouldn't be needed anyway.
