|Foster Road in Moretown, closed in winter single lane super steep|
|Yiorgos at the crossroads|
|Proof that the run up can beat the ride up on Foster Road|
|Heading home on the railroad bed|
Here is the link to the ride route...http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/96882711
We headed south on 100B past the spillway and veered off onto Moretown County Road. That means up up up for about 2 miles. We took a little detour along Foster Road which I was intrigued by as MapMyRide noted "closed in winter". It didn't disappoint. There was a cyclocross like descent followed by a granny gear climb for me and a dismount/run up for Yiorgos. At the top we layered down and then bombed down into Moretown.
We headed back north on 100B for a stop at the Red Hen Bakery. We grabbed a coffee and ran into Frank from Onion River Sports. He is an ace mechanic who always does a fantastic job of CLA and polishing my bikes. He rides a CrossCheck outfitted with fenders and greatly impressed me with the fact that it is his sole bike. I can't imagine having the self control to own 1 bike while working at a bike shop. We all rode back together on the Reservoir Road for a while then Frank put it in turbo and motored off.
I headed back up Route 2 and then to the Plainfield Co-op before heading home up the railbed.
Another great ride with perfect weather!
