By this time of the “cycling season,” I no longer look forward to hard efforts, say the way I might have back in June.  In fact, I’m looking forward to winter, or at least the skiing part of it!  The body simply cannot be at maximum capacity all year, especially at my advanced age, so as the days grow shorter the pace of the riding slows down.  The result?  Calm and scenic rides with friends, often on the ‘cross bikes, in the backwoods and on the old roads of New Hampshire.   The stone walls that line some of these dirt roads continue to amaze me.  Talk about the sheer effort of building these – some of them are over a meter in width.
