Well the frontdoor, underground railroad, Henry's down and Henry's up, Preacher, Crushable, to Voodchild took 3 hours. Nice loop for May 5th. Very dry in there, only saw mud in one spot.  Ran into Shane climbing Preacher. He must have hit his head.

Shane and I went down to Rochester Vermont and checked out the riding there. We found a gaint hill which lead to the top of Mt Cushman. The locals call it Mount Pushman. Very nice terrain with amazing views. Its very fun to ride in new places and see new trail. We just scratched the surface as none of it is mapped.

Just rode Blueberry Hill in Warren. My god I think I died and went to heaven this afternoon. What Fun!!!! This is the place to go where you want to Flow. Zero technical all windy perfectly tuned curves exactly right. A little wet after all the rain but very very little. Mostly well drained and really fun. We did everything in both directions in 90 min.

Rode Stanton hill with Koval and his crew. We stayed off the busy stuff and climbed to the top the back way. Then we did a loop in the old stuff which turned out to be good. A little leaf litter but pretty dry. We climbed back up top and did the two DH trails 1:45 out.

Well we did ride and Stan I think you would have actually like this ride. We went from my house and crossed the river on the slipperiest bridge I ever crossed. PT lumber with algae on it and it was not level. Scary shit!. Then we climbed up through and endless hill crossing several Huntington river arms. Then we fought up through a muddy road in the biggest sugar bush in Vermont. This road goes around the extent of the lines.It s huge probably 2 miles across and more then a mile up hill. We went over into the New Haven river drainage and found the Haul road which we climbed to the height of the land. Then we turned around a reversed the climb a bit and climbed up to the cabin. After that we climbed up and went across to the Jerusalem trail. We descended that  and found our tracks and had an endless downhill. We finished the descent along a several hundred foot waterfall on the Huntington river. Amazing thing to see really, Shane can tell you about it. Its really big and I don't know of a bigger drop in a river around here.  We were out for a good 3 hours with dogs

800 bucks at a Yard sale is a pretty good return for all the work that goes into doing that. Now you have the down payment for a Nomad

Bob and I rode Millstone early this morning. Almost 4 hours of some pretty sweet rolling! There is a new trail called Harrington Heights near Roller Coaster that totally knocked my socks off! It's got everything from ramps, bridges, and sculpted single track that utilizes the terrain in a Zen like fashion. It's got to be on of the most beautifully laid out trails that I've ever had the pleasure to ride. I can't wait to go back and do it again. We rode the whole thing without consulting a map and I thought we did pretty well even though we had no idea where we were most of the time! Btw, why can't Helen Keller drive? Because she is a woman!

Shane you are going to get slapped for that remark. I think that Harrington Ridge is the new test piece. I need to go there when its dry and see if I can ride more then half of its "Problems". That trail is where MT bikes meet rock climbing. Riding on top of a granite corner through the woods for several miles with ramps bridges and drops. The slimy mud on my big fat tires didn't help me feel omnipitant either, more like Bozo gets bike.

Chandler was good, slamming ride every time. We just did the loop and the last part had a couple miles of Nettles. Good time!

Stan rode the front door, henrys and back just before the storm today.

DP got his rental tractor stuck good. They are bringing in a helicopter to remove it.

I got stuck in my Saab right in my Motor pool. One tire sunk to the frame and there she sat until I could muster the required muscle. My yard is too wet for the tractor to move around much. We did it the old fashioned way by pushing it. 

Looks like minimal biking this week until the woods dry out. What a mess. I am real glad I live on a hill and my house sits on the ledge. Hopefully Maine will enjoy that Big high pressure bubble heading this way next week.

Well this was the meeting of the Mountain Bike minds weekend up at Burke. Stan went but I stayed home.

I did ride Richmond with Shane yesterday. That is one tough hill and it punished us in the heat. We found a new trail that is pretty amazing. Someone has a lot of free time on their hands to be cutting these kind of trails.

Went to the HTF yesterday with Stan and Chris Francis. We parked at the Hayen Hill West lot. We rode International to Homestead and then tried Boneyard. That was a mistake as Boneyard is almost gone. We ended up dragging bikes through thick forest to escape. Then we rode Dragons tail and met Chris. He had a mechanical and had to go find a brake bolt. We did Fire breather and Lost trail to Passing the Horizon. Then we went across on International to Sheep thrills to Maiden back to the cars.

IT was nice out and the trails were is good shape with a little mud here and there. I brought my bike to work and will ride on the way home again. One more ride before the rain returns.
