pics from my sunday ride








Jefferson Notch Road

Old Cherry Mountain Road

exploring the possibility of leading an adventure day ride in the next few weeks, scouting out a route, trying to find a way to avoid leaf peeper roads, but I think I gotta be on em to link things

I also got hit, a woman driving a convertable pulled out in front of me, she was to my right turning into me, no time for me to stop, no place to swerve to the right, she was turning left toward me, I had to swerve even further left, then she saw me, and came to a stop quickly, but not before her bumper made contact with my pelican case, it was empty, sounded like a loud drum beat, pushed me sideways thought but not quite enuf to knock me over

Leaf season is just starting up down here.

Glad you survived the inattentive converible pilot.
Are you a tobacco chewer?



Nice patina on the Pelican.

What front tire are you using with your CT rear? 705?

I think I'll take a nap.

on Sandwich Notch road, only met a couple oncoming vehicles in 15 miles and a couple mountain bikers too, they were flying, no other vehicles, even parked on the side of the road. On Tripoli Road, I met a few more, and there were plenty of hikers cars parked on the side, but not the traffic you see in summer. On Cherry Mountain road, I had all 15 miles or so all to myself

I'm kinda bummed that Jefferson Notch Road is closed , not sure why, maybe Irene washed something out, doubtful it will open before winter

Yeah sure, brag about your stinking fall colors! Would that we all had them. I thought you were going to publish pictures of exraordinary high water marks from all the flooding that finally subdided!
Fall is felling!

peak foliage is still 3 weeks away, so far a few swamp maples have turned, that's about it

I tried to take Jefferson Notch Rd back in June and it was closed then.
Its a nice cut through the woods.

Missed this thread here earlier.

Your post on NESR encouraged me to go check out Tripoli Road a couple weeks ago. I'd never ridden that. On the way I found where Sandwich Notch Road dumps out onto 49. Need to check that out someday.

My planned route involved the Kanc and Bear Notch Road, possibly doubling back through Crawford Notch to blast home on 93.. but alas I ran out of time and tried to b-line it home on 16. Wound up in miserable traffic hating life and 2 hours late with a pissed off missus.

At least the morning was fun!
