Riding bikes

Yesterday we made the trek down to Arcadia for the annual RI NEMBA Spring Fun Ride. The early wake up call was worth it as Jim G laid out a great loop(s) for all to enjoy. We also had a rare opportunity to ride bikes with the legendary Travsquatch of Thule fame. Try as he might he didn't even manage to break anything on Mike's D660. We rode the first 9 miles and then improvised our own loop at the end finishing with a ripping descent back down to Arcadia Rd. While the 95 trail is not to be missed time constraints led to the unfortunate decision to skip it.

We picked up a bunch of RI NEMBA T shirts at the ride, they are for sale for $15 with all the cash going to RI NEMBA. I hear it's so they can buy a big screen TV for their palatial club house... Seriously, they are great shirts and the blaze orange shirt might save you the hassle of not riding somewhere when you arrive at the trailhead and realize that you forgot your blaze orange vest. Buy one and throw it in your trunk, your backseat, your gear bag or whatever. A ride in a cotton T shirt is better than no ride at all, right?

No pics of the ride because I completely forgot to grab the camera on the way out the door Sunday morning. Here's a pic of the RI NEMBA shirts.



The weather looks great for tomorrow nights ride and trail conditions at Lincoln Woods are pretty darn near perfect right now. Maybe we'll remember to bring the camera along this time.
