Losing traction

Sometimes traction is lost at an inopportune time:

Thanks to Steve for all of the hard work in planning, and putting together this ride. Route sheets and GPS files, wow! Getting dirty has gone hi-tech!

Seconded. What a great time, thanks Steve for putting it together.

Good fun running into the NETRA vets too. A pleasure to ride with you.

Momentum is your friend. I managed to make it through all the water hazards, but I recall two that were real iffy near the end and I had to get on the throttle to make it out.

It's a track system on my iphone (MotionX-GPS) ....for another day of riding!!

Thanks again Steve for the awsome loop!

You're quite welcome.

I'd love to explore that part of the world a bit more when the winter is over, if you're up to playing tour guide for an overweight pigbeast and its hack rider...

Plainville, MA Food Pantry Collection $$$

First of all I would like to thank all the riders that attended the First annual DARC Cidah Run Rhode Island Addition! Thanks so much for everyone who donated to my Plainville, MA Food Pantry which took in $225.00! Many thanks to Skip for the event stickers, ride pictures and postings. I really appreciated all the help changing my rear flat; it seems like it took about five of six riders worth of tools, stands, pumps and patches to get the job done! A special thanks to Peter O. for riding out for the Fix-A-Flat that I never used.

Im looking forward to doing it again in 2013.

Your Trail Boss -

Tri-State riders

Glad you folks had a great ride. I was busily prepping my house for impending doom with Hurricane Sandy coming. I see from the pics 3 folks I know. Anne, Matt and Rich from the Tri-State Trail riders.

Man, I had a great time. The routes were well selected, the run well organized and filled with great attitudes.

We just had our power restored here, but when I have a moment or two to do some editing I will post up a video or two.

Someone also asked for raw video to create a compilation. PM me if that was you.
