Perfect this afternoon despite some morning showers.
Looks like I just missed ya buddy
Was nice yesterday and should be prime for the beginner ride tonight come on out and meet the crew...
Where is Allaire Beach?
you can see it on the old map
Actually, it's down trail a bit. It was / is called Beach due to the broken sea shells there. Not sure where that soil originated from, but there are other spots with shells at Allaire.
The different soil compositions at allaire always makes me think how diverse it really is... sand, shells, pea gravel, black dirt, and in the pines there is that loamy composted pine needle..
Curious... what year is this map from?
Mid to late 90's is as close as I can get to an answer. There are many trails on that map that have been closed, or re-routed. that map was drawn, not computer generated, so it's nothing like the map that was created a few years ago.
It's really not diverse. The whole thing is a sand based layer or "regolith" which is soil devoid of real nutrients. The immediate layer on top is organic based from decaying plant life, the color usually derived from the plant life that is decaying. Beyond that there are some small pockets of clay throughout the park. Otherwise it is sand.
If you want to see some real shells, go across from the church. There are dump truck loads of them.
Look at me using my college edumacation.
Thanks Bill Nye, now go back to drinking PBR and working on your Ford.
Don't be Jealous. Still rode more than you this week.
Let's compare mileage after your wife pumps out 4 humans
Yeah, no. That didn't happen here. So I will continue to work on my Ford with a PBR after my ride.
Bask in the low dollar glory.......
thoughts on riding tomorrow morning?
Well I am in brick and it has been raining more or less all day although light rain.
the sun is not going to dry things up so I would say the morning is not going to be good.
We have a TM session at 8AM and wrap up around noon then we might ride we will have a better view after TM.
Notice there is no "glass" "imba" or "switchbacks" and there is the roller coster
