This morning because I had other commitments later in the day I wasn't able to do my typical commute so, instead, I decided to bust out the Dos and hit the trails I rode past the other day. Boy am I glad that I did, it turns out that there is a pretty decent network of singletrack practically out our current front door. Four minutes on the road and I was into singletrack bliss. It's pretty amazing, what probably would have been a sub-par commute on the road (because of how tired I was feeling) turned into 1:20 of exhilarating trail riding. I could tell it was a good ride because when I got home I couldn't stop yammering on and on about the trails to Marcy. I was almost giddy.
The one unfortunate thing about the discovery is that I made it when we only have four more days in that particular locale and once we move it's pretty unlikely I'd make the drive down for it specifically (and it would be 40 minutes on the road with a mountain bike ICK!). Oh well, I'll try to enjoy it one more time before we move. That reminds me, starting next week I'll be able to start putting my new commute together and that IS something to be excited about since it will probably be 2/3 singletrack. Giggidy, giggidy.
I swear there is singletrack in this pick. Also, if you look really closely for 15 second (and turn your volume way up) the fog in the center of the pic will do an awesome John Fogerty impersonation.
The new "from home" loop.
