    Bike Log 2012

    Very first road ride of 2012

    my normal 24 mile lunch-time route from work in Clinton, CT. Took the cross bike with fenders and winter knobby tires.
    Average 15.2mph which felt very slow but I just checked and that was exactly the same as last years first ride. I'm out of shape but at least not any worse than last year.

    Quite a bit different from last years first ride on Feb 17, 2011 where there were 3 to 4 foot piles of snow along every rode. Today it looks and feels like April out there.

    back to skiing this weekend. Let's hope March saves the ski season.

    don't pay much attention to dates, but it looks like...
    2/4 Waldo
    I know I just went to the soccer fields/Nass 2/19
    did a Sessions ride, with a little extra thrown in ... I think that was this year, I think 1/2...'cuz the day before was top of Rattlesnake for sunrise, then paddled, and the next day was good as well, so it musta' been riding. Been hiking a lot though, 'cuz my vertebre weren't too happy with me, but they were good that weekend. It's weird to feel like you're 12 and 98 at the same time. Baby boomeritis.
    Okay, enough babble.

    You guys riding MTBs this early in the season how are the condition of the trails? Back 15-20 years ago when I used to ride MTB more it was a common practice to not ride the trails until at least late April . Even the local bike shops promoted keeping off the trails until they were dry. This was at a time that many areas were getting closed due to excessive damage. I guess conditions depend on where you're riding. Most MTB trails around me are still very muddy.

    With the lack of snow and rain the trails are very dry.

    and the mud at Nass was frozen

    went hiking and found a trail I want to get on, but the logging companies skidder mucked things up bad on the access route. I think I found a different access point and will be checking that out. Overall, the trails have been amazingly dry. Darn leaves hide the line sometimes though.

    :3/4 got down to Hurd with my paddling buddy Wade, and did 4.5 hours, have no idea on mileage
    3/10 rode from my house over to Tories Den, went out that singletrack, ended up out past reservoir #5, and crossed that pita stream twice, fortunately not falling off those damn loose rocks where a bridge USED to be. It was 3.7 miles in a straight line, so roughly 12 miles eyeballing my breadcrumb trail, some on the road. Saw my trails from Scoville/Sessions on the gps, and I was close. Neat to see.

    trail conditions good/great both days. Hurd nearly totally dry, and my local sheeeeite runs from hard pack to pudding to streams to road to fireroad....pudding, gotta' patent that one...
