The mini-loop swung by Perch Pond, then took a hodge-podge of dirt roads back to Campton, where I parked. It seems you climb the same 100 feet a million times during this section of the ride. It is roller purgatory for sure.
Normally I would add in another monster climb, like Stinson Lake or Tripoli Rd, but the legs didn't feel up to it. I hit most of the endless rollers pretty hard to make up for a shortened loop. I'll leave you with a few photos that capture the essence of the ride.
Looking down the now paved Taylor Rd. This means about 95%
of the Campton Mtn climb is paved. Boo. At least half of the descent
is still dirt.
Sandwich Mountain from Sandwich Notch Rd. Hint of snow
Sandwich Notch Rd, heading down south side. Either there was
minimal hurricane Sandy damage, or it had already been cleaned up.
Algonquin Rd near the west end. This portion was recently improved
for a logging operation you can faintly see looking down the river.
Tenney Mountain from Pulcifer Rd. The wind farm is almost complete.
Zoom of wind farm. 24 turbines in all. I think this is wicked cool.
