    Hi Phil!

    My wife and I were on the Bdale Bog route in September. G-Bikes were the tools of choice and the wider softer tires made short work of the sand and roots. I was feeling rather cocky early on the ride (from Rt. 86) as I rode through the deepening water along the trail. The large rocks I had been riding on suddenly ended in a 3′ deep hole and I went over the bars and completely under water. I came up sputtering, checked my bike, and advised Kirsten to hug the edges of the trail. This inadvertent duathlon encouraged a brisk pace to stay warm and dry out.

    Perhaps fat bikes might float better…

    I’m always following for these type of ride suggestions. Would be amazing if you provided a gps file, strava or ridewithgps for so it is more clear where to go and can be easily be uploaded to a gps unit.
