It was the first time in a long, long time that I had ridden with music. Having an iPod along was a nice addition for this type of ride... long, straight bike path with little traffic.
My first stop was at the Pioneer Creek bridge - one of my favorite spots on the trail.
I'm glad I was able to see some new sections of the trail... you definitely feel like you're out in the country.
I finally pulled in to Winsted, stopped for a snack, some cold Gatorade, a short rest, and headed back the way I came.
