TA Report: Rocky Neck SP

Umm.. burrrrrr!! It's cold out! but I really wanted to get outside and get some exercise! Was actually think of just a walk around do to wind and cold but throw the bike in the van "just in case" Glad I did! Was a tad over dressed actually but was all good. 
Trail conditions were actually pretty good and the leaf coverage is 80% gone or crushed down now. Surface was a tad hard & frozen which is to be expected but allowed for some easy rolling. Stayed on the fire roads mostly with a few branches off here and there on short single track spurts. Scared one elderly lady coming up the trail from behind so I stopped and apologized and had a quick "nice day" chat. Wind wasn't so bad when going with it but trying to head north or west got a tad brutal. Headed across to the beach and saw a couple trying to take self pictures so I volunteered to take a few shots for them!  Stopped along the mild climb from the beach to the pavilion to adjust the my Pack and snapped off this shot.

All in all a great ride!  If you are hesitant about going out in the cold to ride... just do it, you'll be glad you did even if you only go for a short romp!
