Got some good weather this weekend. All the snow is almost gone and temps were in the 60's for the first time. My buds and I headed out for a flat 50 miles.

Some of the pavement could be better. We used this road to connect two great roads:

Nice pix. We in the midwest got our first taste of nice weather this weekend as well. It was fun to get on the roads.

I'll be moving to the Princeton area in the fall and am looking for rides in that area. Any ideas or suggestions about where to look?

There's plenty of good riding in the area. Let me know when you relocate. In the meantime, check out They are the biggest club in the area.

The pics in the ride report were all taken within an hours ride from Princeton.
