The Eel Again!

Remember The Eel? First, it was this cool off road race thing in the rain with a respectable number of participants. Then, it was an alley cat and not too many people came. After that, it was a short ride that Brendan, Salem and Dario took and we froze are our asses off.

Now, there's a new one. On Oct. 30, my plan is to start at 10am and ride the CT River in a mostly offroad fashion from Hartford down to Middletown, up to Windsor Locks and then back down. Does this sound like fun to you? It's not going to be competitive. It's going to be an adventure. Just the other day, Dario and I were riding part of the proposed course we were navigating fallen trees across treacherous canyons. It was awesome.

Email me if you're interested in participating. Soon, I'll try to make another sweet logo.

Speaking of the Connecticut River, our Source to Sea cleanup is back on for this Sunday the 17th at 10am. See you then?

That ride is FUN. Salem and I did it a few summers ago one day when it was about 105F out.

If you time it right you can swing by Pedal Power to refill your bottles when you get to Middletown.

Not sure if I can commit just yet. I'll keep you posted.

There are a couple of sections I'm still trying to see if there are dirt alternatives for: north of 291 in east & south windors. north of the farmington river in windsor and windsor locks.

also, is there a better way to get from cromwell, south of the end of 372, to middletown than the train tracks?
