    Whoa, that looks really, really good. Where does one park for that?

    New trailhead is right on 100 just north of the Route 4 split. Currently there are only a few miles of trails so it's perfect for a multisport day at Killington or if you're just passing through, definitely not worth a dedicated trip just to ride there yet. I've heard that some more trails are planned for next summer.

    Todays ride. Deep leaves hiding everything make for a rough ride on a hardtail. Super fun place though, really well built trails and some of the best stone work in the entire area.

    It was 12.2 with a bit over 1400ft of gain. There's another ~9 miles in there so a total of ~21 in just under 1k acres. Such a killer place to ride. It doesn't see much use though so it's rough and raw but like I said the trail is very well done with beautiful stone work and there are tons of features to play with along the way. It's slowly starting to get more popular so I'm hoping it loses a bit of that old school rawness by mid next year.

    Ride yesterday was The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

    Good was chuckling about a flock of turkeys that had wandered near a mile and a quarter of trail. Along a stretch of blown trail they scratched a lot of leaves back into the tread looking for bugs. And an unblown section they fluffed the packed down leaves into a 10" deep mess.
    Bad = catching a leaf hidden rock/root junction as I braked on a steep section causing a nose wheelie before the trail steepened. Resulting launch over the front = bruised rid and banged up ankle.
    Ugly = broke my light off the mount and cracked on of the lenses over the led.

    Thunderstorm at 1:15 last night and a half inch of snow to up the game.

    Woke up to a nice little dusting of snow this morning. Definitely looking forward to some singletrack with a nice little snow layer on it. Plus tires FTW.

    A friend who I've taken thru there had this thing called a bike computer attached to his handlebar. He told me how far we rode once we were done with the loop. More trail is being added after I get finished with storm cleanup. Two weeks into it I'm hoping to finish up this afternoon when I head out for ride #2 today.

    33 degrees, cover the knees....

    Session #2 today was 33 degrees at ride start and 26 degrees at rides end. REFRESHING!

    finished up clearing the 2nd to last area of trail which you ride lots of good trail to get to. One downed tree required a re-route then I got my Vermont on with some rock work in a few areas and even made a lil cairn!(sp?)

    Walked almost all of this today with a rake and a saw cleaning the place up for a group ride on Sunday.

    16 at that temp is killer Hank. Well done. These first few cold rides are tough, thankfully they get easier as you get acclimated.

    Well the wind is down and the temp is falling like a rock and headed for the low teens. Supposed to meet for a ride at 10am and expecting around 20* at that point. Hoping to pull 10+ miles, we'll see.

    Enjoy. I'm torn between chasing the cold to North Conway for a good ride, or riding and finishing up my trail work which may include scratching in some added mileage. Can't lose either way I guess lol.

    North Conway trails absolutely rule. Bummed I never made it there this year. I hope you got up there.
