Sometimes you have those days when riding where things just don’t click. Climbs aren’t made, previously-ridden descents are walked, you don’t feel great, and things just don’t click. Today at Highland State Recreation Area was one of those days. I set out for a ride by myself, but things just weren’t as keen as I’m accustomed to. I could blame the heat, perhaps being dehydrated, staying up too late with beer and popcorn watching Breaking Bad, but it’s really just a bad day. Those happen.
Here is the ride data in Strava if you are interested. I attempted to ride to Milford for some of the Milford trail (aka Highland Loop E), but needing to pick Danielle up from volunteering at The 3-Day I was short on time and turned back after reaching the Milford city limits. The route between the two is quite easy and straightforward. Hopefully I’ll actually do a Highland A-B-C-D-E later this year.
