It was pretty nice outside today (in the 50s) so I took out the Trek. Our destination was the Duck Pond in Boiling Springs, about 14 miles away.
Every time I go out, it seems like I have to ride further to get to the scenery.
Look at this: Some asshat plopped his particleboard McMansion in the middle of a corn field. He who walks behind the rows is not amused.
Right before you get to Boiling Springs, you cross the Appalachian Trail. Bikes are not allowed, but I did venture in on foot to yellow the snow.
When I finally made it to the duck pond, there were lots of people outside.
I forgot to turn on the GPS until I got to the duck pond
There is still no computer on the Trek, so these stats are from the GPS:
Total Distance: 13.5 miles
Moving Time: 01:05
Max Speed: 24.7mph
Moving Average: 12.3mph
Overall Average: 11.8
27 miles! (Perhaps a bit too long on a brand new Brooks….ouch)
