Fall Riding in New England
Ah Fall. The most glorious time in the Northeast to get out on the mountain bike. The hot weather has been replaced by cool, crisp air. The bugs have been obliterated by the cold nights so you can finally venure out without piling on the bug spray. Leaves and pine needles litter the trails giving old trails a new feel. The trees are a spattering of color.
For me, I prefer the trails during Fall to not be blown of by leaf blowers. After riding the trails all season, I welcome the difference the leaves and pine needles give the trails during Fall. Yes, I am riding the same trails, but they ride differently. That corner you can normally rail into, you may have to tap the brakes going into now. The line that you know by heart is not covered, so you discover a new line. These little things make the end of the season riding so special and unique.
Personally, I can't think of a better time to get out on the moutain bike. So get out and ride!
