Sunday fall ride in December

Went on a great ride this past Sunday. Dave sent out a last-minute email throwing out the possibility of a road ride in this warm December weather we have been having.  I met up with Dave and Anthony, plus Tristan and Per from Onion River Sports at Positive Pie Plnfld for coffee. We had a great conversation about endurance and Tristan had us all cracking up with a hilarious pain cave digression.

Afterward Anthony, Dave and I headed out for a 40 mile loop up to Hardwick and back.

It's a little bizarre to have this warm weather in December but we are certainly enjoying it and making the best of it.

Hardwood Mtn/Silver Ledge Trail

Rugged "road" up Hardwood Mtn.

Beaver Pond series

Silver Ledge Trail

Silver Ledge Trail


This was a great 2 part ride I did this month. Both times I didn't have a long time to ride but wanted to connect Hardwood Mtn Road and Silver Ledge trail while exploring a few offshoots in the process. This is a nice route out my backdoor for exploring, skiing and s240 camping. I am aiming for a winter trip to camp in Groton this year.

Doing the ride on the fatbike is such a pleasure. I have had a great time on logging roads, trails, ATV tracks and single track as it just absorbs everything. I compare it to riding in a late 60's american car. It feels like biking on a couch.

If you don't know yet, Surly Fatbikes are 50% off this winter!!
