The Eel 5: Other Rivers

It's the time of year again when people Eel around here. Last year there was no racing, but we went up and down the Connecticut River. This year, I'm proposing that we go take a look at a different river, the Farmington. It is the River of my youth and I think this is a good idea. So, let's go ride over there next Sunday morning (November 6) at 9am. I think the ride will be about 50 or 60 miles long, but I haven't totally mapped it out yet. Wide-ish tires will be a good idea, because there are some rocks, but I don't think any bike will be perfect. We can leave from my house. There's good on street parking.

What do you think? Send me an email.

I'm in. Street parking is even easier if you ride a bike over. Anyone who wants to meet up East of the River (Salem, others?) and ride in on the Hockanum path shoot me a note.

Propose a meetup at the T-end of the paved bike path on Forbes Street at 8:20AM.

If this odd weather keeps up, I might be riding my studded 700x35s.

I should be in assuming a hanging tree branch doesn't fall and squish me first.
