August 26th, 2012 – 49 miles – 4140′
From the côtes of Somerset to the Hills of Morris…Up Cold Hill,
past Potts Reservoir. Onto Old Brookside to the summit of
Mt Freedom. Back down and up once more on the 1.5 mile climb
of East Fox Chase.
Pedaling admits the landscape, immersed in the moment of
sight and sound. Blue skies embraced- as the light of day
reached out, like a welcoming old friend…
The scent of summer itself, permeating every nerve, the fleeting
scenery, leading me where I had never been before.
The afternoon hours passed, too soon to fade-
into the dusk of memory
