Nice out! I am excited first day of the season! You non biker types are missing it. I need to retire and ride every day.  I wonder how hungry the tics are?

Saxon was great , we rode a good 2:20 and I felt it.  My legs cramped a bit but it was just on the last ups. Conditions were excellent. Saxon hill is going away eventually as they will be developing parts of it this summer. Its good to get in there before they demo it.

Let's do it! Jon, are you ready to roll? You would love that place! Stan? I thought I hated leeches until I was introduced to ticks. Now, I'll take a leech over a tick any day of the week. At least, leeches don't spread disease. My son picked up a tick in Middlesex last week. They are definitely out there!

It depends on the weather. I might go skiing if the conditions are Spring like. Don't forget Saxon dries out quicker in the Spring then most places.

Well (sorry Stan) it looks like a ride in the AM. We are thinking about Chandler ridge in where ever Lake Dunmore is, Foresdale I think is the town. Hoping to get going early. Bob and Shane are in, with fence sitters Stan, Gary, Jeff, Rob.  I am pretty sure its dry, I have reports from Snake as being dry as a bone. Can't see why Chandler would much different.

Yes I have a very bright infrared signature. They can see me better then the rest of you slugs.

Its all good because I find them and kill them before they bite me.

hey all, it's late and i'm not lurking. definetly check carefully for ticks on clothing and body no matter where you've been. the salt/c protocol as purported on lymestrategies.com is way looking into for helping anybody with tickinosis. a couple of years ago i tried to send warning north and was informed that ticks don't live in vermint. the salt/c protocol is hugely more effective than what the pharmeceuticals tell the doctors what to do. on a much lighter note... i found the chaga mushroom fairly easily, this is worth looking for in the northern woods. i haven't been using computer much lately and don't mean to butt in off-thread, but it's nice to see this old site is still active. may the spring of this year find you all in good spirit.

Good to hear from you Ludd. We have been wondering what's lurking in the woods of northern conn. The tics have really taken hold. Apparently riding on the backs of rodents. Our count is just one so far on one of the dogs. Chaga is prerrt common around my house. The boys collect it often. The ramps are out too, the first green thing in the woods.

Head north for a camp out, we will gather

Skiing the Bush Sunday with my son Scott and brother in law Jay and a friend of Scott's. I have 2 tickets available for 35 bucks. I'm taking a loss on them but want them put to good use. 

Hey Mal, how's it going.

Well Chandler Ridge was great. However the stick that broke my hanger was not appreciated. I had to walk and roll out while Shane and Rob finished the ride. Excellent day really great place up there. I sat in the sun on the dam watching loons feed.

No little stick can hurt my bike. Rode a real mans' bike yesterday and all is good on the roads of northern vermont.......some folks in the hills could do a little clean up around their properties.....but hey, kickn' back and poundn' a few budweiser's and beatn' the kids, wife, and dogs is way more fun than burying old snowmobiles. Today it's more fun with a little golf in the afternoon. What an awesome weekend......About time, we needed some decent weather.

I helped my wife make juice last eve with her new juicer......wth!....We found out I only like using it for OJ. Who the hell can drink green slop. Give me a salty V-8 any day.

Joe I will have you know that stick was massive. It was way bigger then a #2 pencil. Over in half a pedal stroke too. It jumped off after it did its work and hid too. I would have broken it in half but then there would have been two of them.  I think Santa Cruz bikes pick up more sticks then others. It just seems like they tend to collect them.

Oh well whats a drop out, new cable and a casing among friends.

We rode the front door this afternoon. Very early for this climb. It hurt me but I did get to to the top. There were about 15 cars parked at the end of Big hollow road.  Lots of riders for 5/2/2013. All dry and leaf blown. Thanks FSOW!

Hey boys Sugar bush is still open and its free. Just putting that out there. Sat/Sun look good for corn.

Is he from essex? Why do you think you know him? I have seen this guy around town for years, but never thought I should know him. Funny if you think about it, if a woman asked the same thing to a man, like for example, would Stan show his tats for a few bucks? Damn right he would!

The guy just wanted the ladies to show him their puppies.

I think he is from Essex and maybe a class mate but I could be just mixing up where I remember him. Maybe he worked at Bio-tek, not sure.

That name does sound familiar. But then, every name is starting to sound familiar. Like I've met everybody in the whole world already and should recognize them.

Since this is supposed to be a bike riding thread...
Haven't been riding in Pine Hill Park yet but I'm planning on riding for a bit on Sunday afternoon. Want to get my old 10-speed set up with platform pedals so I can ride around town with sneakers on. Great way to explore a very small city.
