For those that missed it our group ride season got off to a great start last night at Franklin Falls. Great temps and a perfect breeze that kept all the bugs at bay. Many of us got our first stab at the Salmon Brook Trail as well. Still needs a bit of work but in my opinion it is a success and a nice addition to the trails at FFD.
Just a note: Please be mindful of the wet spots on Salmon Brook until we have a chance to armor them, we don't want to do too much damage.
All in all a great ride, a few of us are still working out the winter kinks though. Matt got bit by the Pine Snake and I pulled a flying Dutchman on Moose Gulley. We even had a broken derailleur hanger but luckily a spare was at hand and between a few multitools we were able to get it installed. Should be a great season. Next week we are off to Concord! check the Upcoming Events for details and directions soon.
I'm really looking forward to a tour of the Concord trails next week.
