Normally a ride in the Pine Barrens isn't high on my list. In the summer I will still stay away. I can't ride fast enough to escape green-head flies and mosquitos. This winter ride was an exception though. It rained all the day before and packed down the sand tight. There was a 6 mile loop an 8 mile loop and a 19 mile loop.
I chose the 19 mile loop. No elevation to speak of but fun and twisty. I saw one group of two guys on cross bikes out there. I kinda recognized them from Fifth Street cross, but we blew past each other just saying "Hey".
I was enjoying the ride and thinking I should stop for some pic's but didn't because I wanted to get back.
Then I saw this. I decided to get all arty with the amazing camera in my phone. I wish I had the fisheye lens attachment LRHG gave me for christmas then I coulda been all pro like.
|This downed pine tree just spoke to me.|
|Maybe it is the graying?|
|Pinecones + Lichen = Cool|

|This would be a great place to single speed but I chose gears.|
|These trees were a little close|
|Somebody lost there beer.....awhile ago|
The loop was fun.
|It made me so happy I got crazy eyes.|
|The weather has been so mild that mother Nature is confused.|
