Thanks to Joe for the pictures in this posting
2012 and another Detour de Connecticut for the books, under what may have been absolutely perfect conditions. I want to thank everyone who came out to ride with me--that's the whole reason. Also, special thanks to Brendan for his help in scouting & cutting branches, Art for GPS assistance, Andy from NY for more .gpx assistance, and let's all give a huge thank you to Glen for the absolutely stellar feed stop with fresh muffins out in Hampton. Hip, hip, hooray!
We even managed to convince a born & bred Vermonter
that CT can be a pretty nice place.
Moving forward, I'm going to take Todd's sage advice and shoot for consistency (my apologies to anyone who was stymied by the date changes). Let's plan to do it again next year on the last Saturday in April, with a Sunday rain date. I may make one or two small tweeks to the route, but I'm pleased with how it rides now, so the loop should remain largely untouched--time to start working on something different for a fall ride....
2012's Detour de Connecticut came...
Hope you were there.
