Mass leaves!

My daughter moved to Connecticut a couple years ago. :cry:
When I went back for her wedding, I thought that it looked like a great place to ride :thinking:
Doing my research told me that the riding there was kind of limited :naughty:
She lives near Pachaug, but the videos I found looked like jeep roads, beautiful, but not what I was looking for. :rolleyes:

So I put out a "ride share" thread on the orange site about a year ago, hoping to get an excuse to go see my grand daughter :devil:. Not that I need an excuse..... but when a New England riding brother offered his extra bike :banana::banana: tickets were bought and plans were made! He has family in Cali (neighbors with Roger DeCoster!) and now can ride out here, I can ride out there and see that grand baby!

It's a beautiful time of year back there


Don't tell anyone about the quad, shhhh.


Finally,it was time to meet up and :ride:

He said to look for signs


The staging area


My bike for the day, good thing I had matching gear


Of course we rode all legitimate trails


It was often hard to see the trail


Not alot of pictures were taken, others will be saved to protect the innocent


Found a spot for the quad crowd


And a route marker back to the bar?:shocked:



Lots of rocks, roots, water crossings, mud holes, tight, twisty, tree infested, slippery leaf covered trails, I loved it!:thumb:

Videos at a later date.....
 
That is really awsome! Great pics and a cute grand kid! Glad it worked out for you. :thumb: Roost when I can.

Nice! Post the vids! Kinda looks like Ohio with all the leaves! The leaves get so thick they obscure the ruts, roots, water, and rocks! :foul: I've taken regular dirt naps the last 2 weekends!

If you ride off-trail in the forest and nobody sees you; did it really happen? :thinking:
:smirk: I like how you think.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? :P
 
..............The leaves get so thick they obscure the ruts, roots, water, and rocks! :foul: I've taken regular dirt naps the last 2 weekends!
Slippery stuff, he said about a month ago was the perfect time without the leaves and drier ground.
 
I'm confused. Where is the sand, rocks, and joshua trees? :confused:
Me too, no chance to rest, first you hit the rock, over the root, around the tree, through the mud and then do it all over again. 60 miles felt like 100. Concentrated riding. Wait til he comes out here and tries WFO in the desert, it'll be culture shock for him.
