Day 1 Kingdom Trails

We dodged all weather predictions for showers and thunderstorms here on out first day of Bubbas-hit-the-best -trail-system-in-the-northeast in Vermont.
Check out Kingdom Trails website to understand just how glorious the riding experience is here.
Parrs Yard, Magill Fields, Moose Alley, White School, Swan Dive, lower Pond Loop, Vast, RiverWood, Leatherwood, Beat Bog, Sugarhouse Run, and Herb’s back to the Welcome Center where we piled the bikes into the back of Rigger’s truck and up the hill to the campground.

My Strava program logged 12.2 miles of riding. Really fun. I rode well and kept up with the fly boys fairly well.

The boasts grew big around the campfire last night while we were woofing down multiple plates of Chris’ beyond tasty spaghetti. Chris and Stevie were talking trash challenges to each other about riding Moose Alley uphill today. Both were distortingly fueled by multiple rum-drinks called Wimpies. Crazy bike talk.
This Saturday morning Chris and Steve each have very different weather reports on their smart phones. They ate at each other again. Shut up Steve, we don’t want to hear about 80% chance of rain for day 2.
25 miles today ? We’ll see…,

    Thanks, Tom – this place is only about 30 minutes from my wife Jenny’s family’s place in Greensboro. We’ll check it out this winter when we’re over there for x-skiing and will take our bikes with us next summer. Sounds fantastic and we had no idea it was there!
