Exploring Vietnam...

While I'm not exactly new to the area, I just recently discovered Vietnam in Milford, MA late this season. I was going to head out and do some exploring this weekend, and figured I'd send out an invite to any that would like to come. This will be my second time out there, so expect to get lost. A lot. At least if I'm leading and you've never been out there. LOL, but isn't that half the fun?

This will be an intermediate ride, mostly trail riding (Read: no big drops) I'm just stepping up to clipless pedals (long time platformer), so I plan on taking it on the easy side. Well, at least when stopping. Speaking of stopping, I plan on riding through until 1-3. Keep your eye on the weather, there is a storm passing by late this week. From what I hear, that means a lot of mud, as this area floods easily. I'm also breaking in a new bike, so I'm going to avoid riding it into ponds or lakes. http://www.weather.co...

I've added a new venue that takes you to an alternate parking lot that allows you to take Upper Charles Trail right to where exit 20 crosses under 495. The only time you'll need to cross traffic is getting across Rt 85. Note that to get here you turn right on Dilla (by Wendy's - Although from what I hear, most people just park in the very back of the parking lots behind Wendy's and other businesses).

    A mix up at the meet location. So, I did my best to get lost and find some trails by myself. Great day for MTB, though.

    I was watching out for two people on the trail; did you see a guy on a silver Trek FSB go past you? I rode past two guys, and by the time I rode back to see if it was the two of you they were gone.

    Hey Tom/Tim, Did you guys end up heading out at 1030am? I got out to the parking lot off of Dilla about 15 past 11... did a few laps and just got back now. I owe you both an apology; I set this up and didn't follow up with you. Next time I'll post a contact phone number.

    I live in Milford, and it seemed like we only had light rain over the past few days. Only a few puddles, nothing major. Some areas of the trails were damp, but it just made the topsoil tacky. Really nice for climbing.

    Crap guys... I'm getting a late start. Was packing my bike up this am and realized that my my LBS didn't install my new bike's crank caps. My BB is exposed. I'm headed over to the meetup, but am afraid I won't be able to make the ride; . Sorry for the late notice and flaking...
