Rocky Neck State Park

Date: Jan 6 2013
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Rocky Neck State Park
Town: East Lyme
Trail Conditions: Snow, but ridable
Observations/Information: Keith Coughlin just moved down to the south eastern part of CT and hit me up to show him a few of the local ride spots. The snow is still sorta deep going just a few miles north, but here on the shore the last few days have kicked it down to just 2-3 inches. We were all mis aligned on Saturday but managed to get the 4 of us all together around noon and so we took off and rode the snow trails. hikers/dog walkers have packed the tread pretty well an in many sun exposed areas the snow was thin in not at all. Traction was actually pretty good and only had a few of the really steep, northern facing hills we just couldn't get a real bite on.
Did have one flat, of coarse, it was my front. tried to get the tubeless to reseat but she wasn't having it so I slapped a tube in..(think there was a slice somewhere but couldn't find it with the snow and muck and didn't want to waste even more time)

Kieth, Cory Stiff and I meet at the parking lot up by Wine Emporium and rode down to the beach parking lot to meet Steve Elderidge who drove in there. Spun around most of the basic stuff and even a chunk of the Camp grounds. Really the only place we didn't go is the center un marked path which we'll show Keith another time.
Honestly I was kinda dragging and wasn't pumped about riding this morning when getting up, with the cold wind, snow and all but really glad I went!! had a great time..!
