Nam I am
I'm glad I got my Ride in this morning because right now it is snowing , my yard is all white , and my son is out side right now making a snow man.

so This morning I got up early and met up with IF_rider and we rode . it was about 37 degrees , a bit nippy , once you got riding it didn't feel cold.

IF doing a roller


IF dropping.


Well IF rider had to get back by 10 for his sons soccer game , so He crusied on Back to the car , and I went over to meet up with another group who were meeting at 10. I had a little time to kill so I went Via a new Bike trail that is being built . I Like the Artsy gate.



So I met up With Voss, the silver turtle , Carl and Donny.

Here isthe silver turtle showoing off the Brand new Trail SX !



My camera was acting strangly ( ok the Batteries were dying ) so I had trouble getting soem shots . but it seamed to work in rock garderns.

Donny coming up the step line , and getting stopped! dam near went over the handlebars as I took this pic


Voss Taking the Rubicon Line .


Voss would blow out his tire on this atempt , so WHile he fixed the flat we played some more.

Here is Donny , Making another attempt , but using my bike ( MMcG Note the Frok )



The Silver turtle on teh Rubicon Line.



Donny back on his bike on the Rubicon Line



The silver turlte , show why we call it the Rubicon line , some times it wins



and Final shot Donny taking a Final run on a different line
after this I could not coax any more shots out of my Batteries.

Hmm...no snow in Simsbury CT today.

Nice pics! MBC and I are hoping to hit Case tomorrow.

Simsbury!!?!? Dude, I'm selling my house and moving either there or West Hartford. I love it around there and my wife's family is from Granby and W. Hartford. Any good places to ride?
There's a cool bike shop in Canton with the little trails in back - what's it called?

Sweet pictures man. I want snow. But actually today Cannondale was having a demo day at our local state park so we went down and got to test out the new Prophet MX1 and a Gemini. They were sweet. I liked them. It was a good Saturday. I need to make it up that way sometime so you guys can show me around.

JTT , we must get you down to Nam before shppping off to CT
I'll always be back up this way - all my friends and family are here (business too). It's the wife who's kidnapping me to be closer to her family!
I'll go to Nam as soon as I whip my ass back into shape. Knuckle warned me about your high speed rides uphill! :D

I'm moving once my current contract is up at my client (Feb '06). House is for sale as of last night sooo, both of those things have to happen before we migrate south. But I'm really looking forward to relocating - that whole area is beautiful. (Plus a big new Trader Joe's just opened in W. Hartford.) :thumb:

Floating down the Hudson
We finally had a nice weekend in the Northeast! Rob and I took full advantage of it and headed to Vassar Farms for a great fall ride. The leaves definitely made things interesting and we discovered a new trail: Radio Flyer, complete with the actual wagon dangling from a tree branch at the trailhead. After a few hours of riding outside, the day ended with a steaming mug of hot cocoa :D
