Gone Fishin'

HEY!

I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

Rattlesnake Creek

We spent a few hours riding at Rattlesnake Creek, which is a few miles by road from where we live to the trailhead. Most of the path is old fire road and very doable on our slick tires, which were more than capable of the bikepaths of Cape Cod but just look silly in Montana.

I got to test out my new computer, which was a five-dollar find at the REI Scratch-n-Dent sale on Saturday. It is a Vetta RT88, which is wireless, does speed, odometer, time riding, etc. I'm not a big one to blog about work, or to push any commercial venture through my writing, but these members-only sales at REI are just great. There was nothing wrong with this computer, it just needed a new set of zip-ties for mounting and it was good to go. We spent about 12 miles on trails today.

The bike, with computer mounted. Of course, this isn't really visible in this picture, but it was a nice place to stop and the bike looked so nice leaned up against the rail here.

Looking up Rattlkesnake Creek. We rode well past all the mountains visible in this picture.





Another nice one of the creek and relatively flat meander belt between the mountains. Lots of wildflowers, green grass, and awesome picnic spots with great views like this along here. Posted by Picasa
