Friday Night Ride

First ride in a week because of crappy weather,I'm spoiled already from the two weeks of 70 degree temps we had. Felt real good on the bike,looking forward to a hilly club ride Sunday.

Want It Wednesday,Heritage Trails Ride

The Hoosac Tunnel

Two houses used for the Under Ground Railroad
I know, not my typical Want It Wednesday item, so sue me.This is a ride, that has always scared me off, because of all the climbing it has. John has done it four times before and modified it some, to eliminate some of the climbing, so we're planning on doing it later this year. He's also made some changes to it, so we can bail out if we need to, you couldn't on the old ride. It starts in Shelburne Falls, in western Massachusetts and heads out on the Mohawk Trail, paralleling the Deerfield River, and through Charlemont, with sites used for the Under Ground Railroad. If we're up to it, we'll also check out the Hoosac Tunnel, This area is loaded with history and plenty of majestic views, so I'm really looking forward to it. Heres the actual route we will do. Don't forget to check out Jez Andrews Want It Wednesday here.

NBW Lakeville Tour

As always,our members do an outstanding job arrowing.
Cranberry bogs galore

I took RT 28,to cut off 8 miles

Rest stop at mile 28

 I had all intentions of doing the 40 mile loop on this ride, but the wind,cloudy skies and 51 degree temp. changed my mind. This is a pretty flat ride and I was able to stay in my big ring for the whole ride. This ride is scheduled for tomorrow but it's supposed to rain, so I did it today. I expected to see a few riders from the club doing it, but only saw one starting, just as I finished.

Thursday Night Ride

Another great day to ride, 78 degree's and sunny. I felt great again, so I pushed it and ended up with 13.8 mph average. I know that's not fast for most of you, but it's huge for me. I haven't had an average mph that high, since before I hurt my back.

Monday Night Ride

 Everything was perfect today for a nice ride after work. It was 77 degrees out,bright sun and no wind. I couldn't have asked for a better day,except one thing was wrong. I felt like you know what, I was sore all over and I had to force myself to do the few miles I did. Oh well, hopefully tomorrow will be better.
