Previously, I rode the lower 10 miles of this trail. Today was blustery, but I pushed further to mile 15.
Drainage was excellent. It rained the night before but there were only a few puddles. As I’m gaining confidence with off-road riding it’s becoming clear that these are hardly obstacles at all.
There is a trail access point in Parkton, mile 12, to access the upper portions of the trail until my range increases.
I mounted a GoPro to the handlebars, set to shoot photos periodically. It seems like this technique has potential. The early photos (I set out at sunrise) have too little light, but the later photos turned out all right.
The interval was 10 seconds, which seems too far apart for a time-lapse. Even at 15mph too much distance is covered between photos to give a continuity to a time-lapse compilation. But it is close enough to capture the character of the route. Here are a few isolated shots.
