April Fools ride !

Well It was time to go take a look at the trail conditions since I've been on the road bike the last couple weeks. I kept the studs on because I knew I would still run into plenty of ice sections and about a third of the trails still had ice. Will get back out on the road for another week or so to let the trails dry out a little more.

You went out riding in the woods alone so they could find your decayed corps if you had an accident and was knocked unconscious due to lack of helmet? I hope you at least filed a flight plan? Anyway, is that April Fools' Day ride an annual event? BTW, is that a Massachusetts accent

Never ride without my helmet, and my camera was still mounted on it at the time I went to check for the unicorn. Yes that's a Massachusetts accent and 90 percent of my rides are solo. The Aprils fools ride is pretty regular but as with the unicorn I have set out strange animal figurines throughout the trails for people to find. This is a large camping area and during summer you'll find plenty of hikers, so the mishap figurines are a fun thing for them to find and take.
