It's lookin' like Fall at the park!
Ripped through Wilderness last night with EP. When we got to the section of trail right after the first bridge, EP pointed out that, not only were there leaves on the trail, but that the leaves on the trees were starting to change to a beautiful yellow. It was awesome...
We (almost literally) rain into Charlie (that's Officer to you) Marti out there too... Everyone ended up okay, but Charlie hit the deck pretty hard avoiding a head-on. The moral of this story? Run a bell and give it a little ding-ding when you're coming up on corners you can't see all the way around. If you hate bells, just give a little shout -- an ounce of prevention could have saved a wipeout yesterday, and as two of my former helmets will attest, it's more than just EP, Charlie and I that are coming up on eachother fast out there. .. Let's be careful out there.
Speaking of safety at Wilderness -- I know lots of people have been discussing it in private circles, but who else is interested in proposing (to Parks & Rec) the creation of a loop at Wilderness by building a new "return route" for bikes this fall/winter? I'm thinking that we could easily make a case that it's a need from a safety standpoint. Just a thought.
Gotta go... Meetings await.
