Other 39:10  1.12 mi (34:59 / mi) +25m 32:43 / mi
To end of Arnold. Rained hard last night; gray, raw day & a light rain halfway thru. Wet gray wx compounded by corona virus daze. Actually depressing!
Other 36:38  1.15 mi (31:46 / mi) +2m 31:36 / mi
BHS track midmorning. Showers, breezy, on the raw side but glad to have done it. Rain is forecast for the afternoon. West wind on Turee.
Other 42:01  1.16 mi (36:13 / mi) +27m 33:47 / mi
To end of Arnold, start 6:20. So quiet, just occ. birdsong, the stream rushing in the nearby woods and the occasional passing vehicle. Waved to each - the bike moves like a snake in the grass so needed to be careful on the long hill without both hands in place.
Today’s drive picked up where yesterday’s left off. Got to Hillsboro quickly. Brought back memories of Fox Forest O and pre-bypass days. These old NH towns, esp. ones on rivers have so many interesting/intriguing/dilapidated structures. We found ourselves on Clement Hill Rd, wooded and eventually sparsely populated. There was an audubon conservation stretch where the road was occ worrisome for our vehicle - some pretty deep ruts. When we finally returned to hardtop it was like getting out of detention. Passed thru Weare center (always begs “where?”), and back on 77.
Asked PT not to come today due to corona risk exceeding benefit. Elegant home
in the woods, before the road dropped down to uncomfortable levels of roughness. Ancillary buildings
across the narrow road.
Other 40:24  1.11 mi (36:24 / mi) +25m 34:01 / mi
End of Arnold, start around 6pm. Bird song and peepers audible from far end of Arnold. Dry, mostly sunny. On to April!
Ride to Henniker and then west on Western Ave and back the same way.
Contoocook River was impressive with water flow and rapids. East of Contoocook town it's slow and peaceful, kayak safe.
Other 40:06  1.19 mi (33:42 / mi) +26m 31:33 / mi
Stoneybrook to end of Arnold. Gray & raw which became pleasant enough with time. Had rain, some thunder and lightening and some hail last night.
West Point was cancelled. Just a question of time in my mind. We were recalling a period when the meet was held in September. It will resurrect as surely as the Billy Goat will continue to climb mountains this spring or later.
