It was perfect weather today - especially welcome after a long oppressive hot and humid spell last week.
I rode south from Hop River State Park to where the actual rail trail ended and you had to ride on the road which was almost in Willimantic.
It was a very scenic ride with rock cuts, riverside views, meadows, swamps, deep forests and even a covered bridge!

And lots of stretches of raised embankments...
Short video (I reduced the audio volume as there was lots of wind noise from riding)
