John's Coastal CT. Ride

On the train waiting to leave.

Here's where we got off the train.

Our first rest stop.

Bathroom break.We must have saw ten houses being raised up on piers.

Our last rest stop.

John and I were off today, so John came up with this ride. I picked John up at his house at 7:45 and we drove about one hour into CT. We parked at the train station in Old Saybrook and hopped on the train with our bikes. We got off the train in Branford, about an hour later, hopped on our bikes and we were off. It was a little cool first thing, but we warmed up pretty fast because the first third of the ride was hilly. After that,the ride flattened out and we started cooking. The scenery was spectacular and there was very little traffic because it's still off season. The only bummer on the whole ride was the shitty accommodations on the train for our bikes.
