Great day riding. Mixed and matched two of my buddies and even added a new one today. The four of us met at a cafe in Dumbo. Had a cup and started up north. We followed a track I found online. Unfortunately the track took us through the Bronx local streets to get up to cold spring harbor. Wasted time. Lesson learned.Once we got up there it was awesome. We hit some dirt roads and some winding smooth roads. Great mix. It was freezing and I'm pretty sure I convinced my buddies to invest in heated gear. It even flurried on us a bit. Looking forward to the next ride with the same crew.
Edit: I realized this is very close to where i camped this past summer. Looking forward to camping here again now that i know about these dirt roads.
