Anyone get any nice Thanksgiving rides in yesterday? Care to share?!
We took a nice ride along the East Branch of the Westfield River in Chesterfield, MA. 12 miles roundtrip on an old truck road. Picnic on a sandbar. Probably picked up some ticks too! I've never been here, I have no real connection to MA, and it was, dare I say, gorges? (nyuk nyuk nyuk, with apologies to Ithaca) Someone inaugurated their Platypus on the ride as well! Stupendous! Thanksgiving rides are the best.
Yup, all drivetrain side down at Picnic Time. There was another bike but off frame. That's my Clem in the front and my older Surly CC with a Alfine 8 and Albatross bars that is now basically my brothers bike since he commandeered it from me two years ago and hasn't given it back:
Proud new Platypus owner! "My wrists didn't hurt!" and "I can't believe I rode 12 miles over all those rocks and I feel fine today" means that we have achieved SUCCESS:

Some scenery. I should have taken more pictures but we were riding and having a good time. No sense in ruining moments to stop. Live in the moment and all that. The bikes got good and muddy, as did our backsides. Wicked comfortable mounts for this type of riding.
