I was the first to arrive from the Team Karl's Sausage Kitchen at D2R2 and met up with Zac at the registration tent and invited him to camp with us. Will arrived after I set up camp and the three of us set off on our annual Pre-Game ride.
From the campground we rode through Deerfield Academy
You could just see the engine pushing the cars
and it was just a switcher so it must have been pushing these cars into a yard.
Here's the train yard where those train cars were being pushed into.
After the rail yard we picked up the Franklin County Greenway and headed towards Turner Falls.
The old rail road bridge crossed over the Connecticut River
We stopped for a little brake at this intersection with some amazing sight lines
And then we were riding again and dodging puddles
I bought a four pack of the Heroes Pale Ale. Will was able to take one can and I was able to fit two in my back pockets one in my frame pack.
