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!


  1. Sorry I missed it, hope to get another tour soon.

  2. I live right in Laconia... not happy that I missed this one (family stuff), but i'll be sure to leech onto one of these rides soon. Sounds like you guys had a blast!
