Bretton Woods perimeter plus an inner Coronary/Sebosis loop
Sunday I hooked up with the SNH NEMBA gang at Bear Brook State Park for another dose of ice biking. DaveP and SteveG were late, so a few of us did a short Bear Brook/Little Bear loop back to the parking lot. Lots of clear ice on skinny benchcut ledge above Bear Brook. We saw set of stud skid marks in ice go right into a tree down a steep pitch. I bet that rider didn't have a good day. A few years ago riding with the Exeter Cycles crew, I took a header into the brook in January. Glad I was running new Nokian Extremes today. They were hooking up superbly.
We knew Dave was running late, and we figured if Steve arrived before we made it back to the parking lot, Dave would tell him we'll be right back. But Steve arrived one minute after we rolled out and he rolled out a minute before Dave got there, thinking maybe we were gone already and he'd hurry to catch us. That sucked. Guess he forgot how to get there. He didn't see the note I scribed in my dirty back window saying we'll be right back either. Steve would catch up with others later on the trail.
Dave and I get antsy in big group rides, as there tends to be wide range in rider abilities and mishaps. We found ourselves kinda out front and we just kinda kept going. Yeah, we're not the most sociable dirt riders. I have a reputation among the NEMBA clan. When I showed up, PeterD told me my boyfriend was running late.
