We had a nice rip in the woods of Burlington last night. The Mayor of Nass led a sweet loop around the soccer fields with a sampling of Stone east. I doubt I can remember all the trail names, but it was something like Dip>Half Pipe>Long way home>Llama Farm>around to cross Punch Brook>up to GW>Rouges? (redone with switchbacks :) )>dirt jumps>up BMX stunt trail>Lollipop (I sat this one out as I needed a break)>upper Dentist>Blue Red (including the rock garden, which I nailed)>Jail Bait>something>Two Bridges>Ass kicker climb that I can't remember the name of.

I ended up with a distance of about 8.5 miles. The guys up front were keeping up a pretty good pace. I felt bad that they had to keep waiting up for me. According to my GPS my moving average speed was around 6.3mph, I bet the front guys were at least a mph faster than that. There was just about 2000 feet of climbing.

Can't wait to get out again! I love rides that push me, though I am getting a little tired of always falling to the back. I'm going to have to work on that!

Looks like I missed a good ride. I always hate being the last guy too, feel like I am always holding up the group.

Sounds like you went up NW Passage from the GW and then it would be Jail Bait>Butz Backdoor>Bridges>B52 Climb.

Good route for sure. Can't wait to get back out riding.

Yes, that's right, I was drawing a blank on some names.

Nice! I am so overdue for a new bike. Just so far out of the budget with a baby on the way :sadwalk:

I keep coming into this forum pretty much just to complain about that.

o3Jeff has a couple of mountain bikes not being used. I'm sure you could borrow one for the season :)
