    Introductory ride up Skyuka this year. 1800' in 2.4 miles. Took me awhile, not fast! Started at the beginning of the Greenville Watershed taking in Mine Mountain on the way to Tryon. Returned up the gravel road by Pearson Falls that concludes in Saluda where I ate mightily of the Wakey Monkey fare. Return down watershed. 53 miles 5400' climbing.https://www.flickr.com/photos/148750...57718870137679

    I rode up through Savoy and Florida (MA) to Rt 2 and down along the Cold River to Charlemont and back up West Hawley Rd to Cummington. Came home, took a bath to ward off the chill, ate, and went to bed.

    Check your PM, I have a good referral for a Falls Church Chiropractic who brought me back to life after a few months of remodeling and moving, don't ignore your back!

    I like tire plugs. I might have to get that foam thing just for peace of mind. That and stop riding the loop east of town because the one mile stretch of Route 9 in it eats tires.

    That road and that bike together are an impossible version of reality. You dreamed this right?
