TOSREC#7 2012

The 7th annual Tour OScenic Rural Eastern Connecticut: Starting with the first ferry from Orient Point leaving at 7am to take a few riders with their bicycles over to New London.

[do I get to finish this up? One more attempt.]

Shortly after rolling off the ferry and on the other side of the bridge rider Andrew from Mystic Velo joined us for a while going up North until he joined his club buddies happening just to pass as we turned onto 138 in Voluntown.
Don experienced some shifting troubles on his new build up bike we could only pin point to a some how badly working cable but he was able to handle it some how with little wiggling on it.
From there we went up North further on scenic Rte 49 and about at this point the dark clouds we were spotting since we started must have dropped a little rain shortly before we got there and from there on roads were and stayed wet for most of the ride and the nice rural part way up North we were hitting shortly after the DD coffee stop -- very thin hot watery coffee...

Just rolling along on great back roads, often with old natural stone walls on sides, colorful leaves all over -- even wet, very pretty!



Here about at the most North point of the ride. Heading back South...

And returning with the 4p boat to Orient.
