Slept OK in big park & ride lot. Chilly in AM. Quick Bfast & on to Birch Mtn TH to meet up w/ Mickey from Rose City Cycles for ride.
Another beautiful day. Hard frost. Met up with riders on time. Cold at first. Not as rocky or technical as Grayville and was an easy ride: no sprints. The others walked almost all the climbs making for a slower ride.
Check out Case Mtn slick rock: It gets slick with moisture be it rain or humidity:
Headed West hoping for a ride in NW Conn before Mass. Learned that place to ride is Nepaug which is in N Central part of state back east of where I stopped.
I stopped at a Tennis club and asked if I could buy a shower. Attendant @ desk made phone call to his boss and I scored a free hot shower.
Drove to Torrington, CN looking for a laundromat & internet access. Clean clothes, a place to crash beside a bank right off main drag, & still working on putting together the IMBA ride in Mass. Joined NEMBA and posted a question regarding the ride.
