Late late afternoon tandem ride with Heather. Basically, just around the block, although a "ride around the block" is ten miles for us. :)

Went out on the Rutland Trail for the first time in a while. It's been a wet spring, and the trail has a lot of ATV-created mudpits. Got black splotches on me from the silty mud -- probably containing a lot of coal dust which is notoriously blackening. The Rutland Railroad used coal cinders for ballas because they had a lot of cinders and they were cheap. Unfortunately, they also not very well adhered, and so under the crushing action of wheels, they break up and make a very fine powder.

Really, what the Rutland Trail needs is to have a LOT more bicyclists so we can kick the ATVers off the trail, and lay down some nice rolled rock dust, or even pavement.
