    Not lately. My mom lives in Ohio and back in August she fell and broke her hip requiring surgery. Then a month later while in a rehab center for the hip she suffered a stroke and is not doing well. I have been spending most days off there with her. I did make it back for a ride up to Vermont to CroMag, but that is about all I have ridden since mid-August.

    How about 10am at the intersection of Rt 102 and Rt 117?

    We can start at the top and work our way down...

    Great ride jgormley. Many thanks. I am considering the Cidah Run now. See what one good ride can do. How about it Rhode and Mrs Trip? Anyone else?

    A few pics from today's ride...

    We think this was a cranberry bog being harvested, take that cape cod!

    A difficult loop section leading to N Shore Road, seems like this part does not get much use, or we lost the trail for a bit.
    Did find a nice bridge:

    jgormley, can you let me know (via PM) where this is? I'm from "that other cranberry state" and we harvest by flooding. I'd like to take a look.

    We got off track 3 times on the loop in that section by Beach Pond Saturday. First Sparrow got off track, then I took over. I lost the trail and Rusty took the lead. Then he lost his way and we had a good laugh at how hard the trail was to follow. It was completely covered in leaves and looked all the same.

    We've all done that loop countless times and getting off track that many times really says something.

    TDub, Rhode Trip and Mrs Trip,

    Sorry I took off you guys this morning...
    I wanted to try to keep up with the lead group...

    Got dropped near the start after I had to stop and strap down my bag..
    I did catch up with them... and enjoyed the rest of the ride...
    skipped some bits near the end and did the extended rock road...
    which was interesting...

    Fast moving group...
    Hope you had a good day..

    Ha, Ha Jerry. No problem at all...in fact, it was a good choice.
    Of course, you did miss out on the getting lost repeatedly in the Buck Hill area, the at-least-one-hour spent on the electrical short to Mrs Trips bike (that John and Bethany from Middleboro, Ma were able to diagnose and got us back on our way :clap) or the slight mishap that has Mrs. Trip on the couch with an ice pack on her foot. We cut out a good bit, and still managed to be the last ones back. Those DARC guys are crazy. Helluva ride...someday we'll finish one. Only took one photo all day
