Thursday to Sunday on CarFreeBrad.com maybe very quiet! I’ll be heading up (or down depending on where you come from) to upstate New York. From Massachusetts it’s about 4 hours south about a quarter-mile down the road from the original site of Woodstock!
It’s a great place with plenty of country but best of all, miles and miles of well maintained open road with brutal climbs and breathtaking downhills! For the first time in a few years, my knee is at a level where I’m actually considering bringing my road bike to try out those roads! Don’t get me wrong, the focus of all my upstate trips has always been to get a good group of people together, do some serious camp fires and drink beers at night and clear orchards and/or float the Delaware river during the day. I won’t have much time to ride and I’m in no shape for much for a than a 15/20 miler (especially on those hills) but it’s the principle.
I will more than likely get in one good (non hung over) ride and if I really want to push it, probably another vomit inducing, hung over, wobbly, hate myself and life 10 miler before the rest of the house gets going.
The question remains: Should I bring my bike?
