    8/24/09 - Burlington RAW

    Nice ride tonight gentlemen!



    It wasn't a particularly long or fast ride, but for some reason I'm beat tonight. I'll let the other guys fill in the details, or I'll add more later. I will say that it was the largest group that we've had out of the 'new' location.

    Nice riding with the crew. Definitely pretty beat right now after trying to keep up with WC for about 7.5 miles. Good to finally meet you.

    Going to bed shortly after I wash my hands a few more times to try and get the glove stink off them

    For Sure!!! Great to finally roll with a healthy sized AZ group from the new parking spot!

    Anyway nice to finally meet Jeff and Steve, and roll once again with Trev and Pat. We need to do this more often!

    BTW, glad you where all able to make the inaugural ride on my new "logging bypass" trail. LOL!

    Glad to hear you guys had a good ride...just an FYI if you guys are riding from Stone or around the soccer fields...specifically the trails off of Punchbrook Road and GW Tpike. I saw that HUGE black bear that the guy we ran into yesterday mentioned.

    I came up on the black bear maybe an 1/8 of a mile into the trail directly across from the soccer field parking area. It appeared to be 300+ lbs...It was fleeing the scene as I was closing in on him...saw him bounding away at an impressive speed. After noticing his direction of travel...I altered my route accordingly and still got a decent rip in...8.3 miles...mostly on the soccer field network. Just be aware that he likes that neck of the woods!

    Get any pics of him? Now I am really going to be reluctant to ride that area knowing he is a regular over there.

    Rumor has it that the DEP, having heard of our recent adventures in the soccer field area - and in complete cooperation with the New Britain Water Commission - let the bear loose over there to insure that we leave the Burlington Woods forever.
    Just a rumor mind you.

    With tongue firmly planted in cheek, I bid adieu.

    The water dept is tricky like that.
