Gilles on some nice double track section.
Gilles was sporting enough to come explore a trail that I just found last week on my soaking wet ride. Had no idea what was in store, but if it was anything like what I rode last week it was going to be a hoot.
Turns out I was partially wrong. While there were some fun sections, it was a lot of hike a bike. In retrospect it wasn't that bad and only took up about 1/3 of our ride. I don't think that I'd attempt riding it again though, regardless, it was worth taking the trail just to see where it went and exploring the beauty landscape.
Gilles still smiling despite all the hike-a-bike sections I led him through.
A lake we discovered which neither of us had ever seen before. Quite pretty in fact.
Our planned two hour ride turned into a little more than three hours by the end of it. I was pretty pooped as fatigue started to catch up to me - all I wanted to do towards the end of it was crawl into bed and go to sleep. Luckily we parked in the bakery parking lot in Wakefield - nothing like ending a ride with a fresh big fat chocolate oatmeal cookie waiting for you.
