Darrin's Ride Report- Jan 2018
I decided to make the run down to Wells and then loop back up through the Speculator Tree Farm. LP4A was pretty good, once I got away from riding the rough snowbanks.
C4B/Gilmantown Trail down into Wells was somewhat rough, but the bumps were low enough and spaced far enough apart to keep me going along it. Snow coverage was good for the most part, although there were several sections in the woods that needed more snow. The power lines sections were the most fun, but there were some icy patches along the way.
I did make it down to Wells for the insta-post card: (see pic!)
From there, I made my way down to Lake Algonquin and enjoyed a couple rips up and down the lake. From there, I hit Trail S47 which was a nice run through the woods, but turned bumpy at the power lines. The trail continuing to Pine Orchard appeared closed, so I turned tail and headed back to the lake.
Return to Speculator
I ran Trail S42 along Routes 30/8 back up toward Speculator. Aside from one nasty culvert washout, which I avoided by running the highway shoulder for a short distance, it was recently groomed and a good ride!
