Yeah, in a manner of speaking. More like a MELT down! Sorry Craig, couldn't resist. Glad I never do that. Lets just say, it was a challenging ride. Fun, but challenging. Got a little TOO challenging at one point for our Mr. Sparrow. Don't feel bad, we all been there. You Pachaug guys should have ridden it. You would be glad to get back to smooth Pachaug. Really was a good ride but a hell of a workout for us old guys.

Our group did the Wrentham ride also...... Wish I had see you guys out there.
This year was the most "challenging" version of this ride, they threw every rocky, nasty hillclimb in the forests at us.
Love the "goat trail" around the little pond near the halfway point. One wrong move and "splash"!

Gary didn't even see the good one That one happened over by that little pond that John was talking about. I was frustrated cause I was riding good and then just completely ran out of energy/strength and couldn't keep the bike on 2 wheels.
It was a great ride but it was a killer.

Ed told me all about it. I was LMAOF as I was telling my wife about it last night. Weird, how other peoples misery can some how be good humor for the bystander. I'm still wasted today, but remarkably not too sore.

To Craigs defense, Him and Gary were on a tear all day. I tried to stay with them two, but running a NJ setup kinda bounced me around some in the rocks. I did have prior knowlege of these trails as did Gary...That helps, knowing we were in for some workout sessions... I have some edits coming...

My parents taught me 'God is watching you'. These days, big brother, or in this case, big Ed is watching you.
Craig, you think those shots you had at the doctors office had anything to do with this?
