Just the jaunt for a nice warm Sunday morning, from the outskirts of Princeton to Peacocks General Store.

Griggstown Grinder 20130604

Most riders had their weekend tales, but it didn't stop Diane leading us on an undulating route from the outskirts of Princeton to the foothills of the Sourlands. My legs still aren't up to it ... too big a break through the winter. I'll have to think of spinning through the dark days.

Griggstown Grinder 20130521

Good. An evening when we didn't need full gloves and arm-warmers ...

In fact, a very pleasant evening indeed.

As usual, we entered the gateway to the Sourlands via Hollow and Longhill, onto Ridge before the long descent to Hopewell.

The surface on Hollow just gets worse and it's hard to believe this route is used as a descent for the family friendly Sourlands Spectacular. Just keep your mouth shut so your teeth don't shake out ...

As usual, thanks to Diane for challenging our legs and everyone else for making Tuesday evenings a very pleasant social ride.

Griggstown Grinder 20130514

Hmm ... Lindberg last week ... Dutchtown-Zion this week ... Diane is determined to get those climbing legs back ...

As usual the usual elite selection of grimpeurs met up in Belle Meade for the Tuesday evening Grind. Fifteen miles of flatland before we hit The Hill of the Day. I'm sure it was the tree cover, but at one point my GPS auto-paused, not because I was soooo slow ... oh no.

Once again, thanks to all, especially Diane.

There was a hint of rain in the air as we started out on the first Griggstown Grinder of  2013. Of course, we all laughed when Diane said we'd be going up Lindberg Hill ... yeah ... right ...

For sure, I have very few miles in my legs so far this year, so I felt it quite badly. And we did climb Lindberg as you can see.

Thanks to all who shared my suffering. And special thanks to Diane for concocting this torture ... um, delightful route. See you all next week.
