over 30 folks turned out for the festivities.
Saw a few biker on the way out coming our direction. “about 15 behind me” makes them just pull over and wait. Like a sweaty train rolling through.
Found a cool way to get some neat pics. I play my vids I got in totem and do a “import filename.jpg” utilizing imagemagick on the playback and it turns out pretty cool.
When the Jamaica North bike trail officially opened up this year it went from Calvert to .5 miles south of Satillo. I had ridden that stretch a bunch of times. Some fellow bikers mentioned that it now goes all the way to Cortland. Article
Well Sunday morning at 7 AM we headed south on it and all I can say is wow. From my house to Cortland would be right at 22 miles, Beatrice eventually would be 40. We made it just about 2 miles from Princeton. There were a bunch of folk out on the trail. During our 15 mile ride we hit 3 bridges that have not been decked and railed. They were pretty rough.
Picked up the cheapest one MWC offered to test out the whole jersey’s rule stuff I have heard. Sure it is a light blue, but they really do work. Usually I just wear cotton T shirts and they get soaked with my sweat. The ride last night was much more enjoyable with it. By the time I made it home I was pert near dry. I plan on getting many more.
this is a before pic. It was pretty bad. (me in the green)
With the parks and rec cutbacks wilderness does not get the love it once did.
We were gonna go out and do it ourselves sunday, but P&R employees did some charity work after hours for us.
there is no way I would ride any of this, but some private farm land in Nebraska has a group of folk building and riding some awesome stuff.
NSP (Nates skill park)
I am one of 14 folks taking part of the CCC (Cornbread’s Commuter Challenge)
He has been making posts about those who are in the CCC here is mine.
I have cashed in on 1 beer, and it was prob the best beer I had ever had. See pic below, that is the beer. I have not had to pay out yet. It was nice to get a kick in the butt to make sure I ride to work every day rain or shine. Even after labor day I will continue to ride every single day no matter what. It will be quite a neat day to hit the year straight.
Gonna be a hot and sweaty one once again. Figuring we will hit the park again, but you never know. Gonna head down to the wrench after work to see if they have any cheap jersey or jersey like shirt product. Wearing the sweat drenched cotton makes for a long ride.
Iffin you are willing to put up with some grueling time on a bike with some good peeps hit the wrench at 6:30.
