Riding to The Quabbin
Another great thing about the Quabbin is the abundant wildlife. I saw a deer as I was climbing inside the park. I see deer there almost every time I visit, partially because I like to snowshoe there and know where the herds hang out, bed down, and winter in. This time of year the deer ticks are bountiful, so I avoid hiking through the Quabbin unless it’s below freezing outside.
This was a great ride, and I’m eager to do it again. In fact, I find myself somewhat pining to be on the bike nearly every day now. This training has had an addictive effect on me, but I figure if I have to be addicted to something–this isn’t the worst thing. Plus, I’m dropping weight at last, another huge plus.
Next ride scheduled is Thursday morning. Any takers?
