Yes. Athletic clothes buying tip: Don't buy all your gear when you're the fittest you've been since college. When you have a period of less-than-fit, you will literally feel the pinch.
Due in part to the less-than-fitness and the continuing less-than-stellar weather, we decided to ride the park loop road
around Acadia. The main part of the loop is about 20 miles. We cut in and did a bit of riding on the carriage roads. Originally, we bought 28 cm tires to aid this, but after 40 min of fumbling I learned that my front wheel is out of true and the rear derailleur hanger keeps me from mounting anything other than tiny race tires. Well f me very much.
The carriage roads turned out to be of such fine quality crushed stone that it was actually better riding than most of NJ. So f NJ very much. We encountered a giant snapping turtle. To make him feel at home, we snapped some pictures of him. Do you see what I did there? Wow, not seeing the sun is sapping me all my powers of snark and humor (for the record, I actually think my snark is humor, so there's that).
