Tour de Laconia
CNH NEMBA and Chainline Cycles joined forces again Thursday for a loop around Laconia on what I would call 'private stock' trails. I wouldn't recommend trying to follow this track on your own, unless you want to get lost. This one required professional navigation skills.
Most of this was new to me and I enjoyed just about all of it, except for maybe the grassy climbing on my SS. I put my poor machine under so much torque last night several bolts loosened up on me and I think just about everything on the bike is now creaking and moaning. And I think my brakes have just about had it after this ride as well. I miscalculated my line / speed / brake equation a few times heading into fast corners, luckily never with any big consequences. All in a nights work.
At least now I can say I've ridden Trail 'X' and I got my first inadvertent night riding in as well which is always fun. The last mile or two was pretty dark in the woods.
See everyone next week at FFD!
