Nagog Hill Road Ride, Early AM

I had the chance to do a decently long ride out past Concord this morning.  The loop took me through Great Brook Farm Park, South Chelmsford, Nashoba Valley ski area, Nagog Hill Road, Strawberry Hill Road, and the bike path.  I was out of the house before 5:30 AM and was back home by 9AM, including a quick stop for an expresso at Ride Studio Cafe on the way home.  It was a 49 mile, 15.2 mph ride, my fastest long ride of the year.  All on 3 bars (2 Kind, 1 Trader Joe's fruit bar), 2 24 ounce water bottles, no breakfast.

On Maple Street in Carlisle, the humidity of the early morning is still evident:

Great Brook Farm Park at 6:30.  The road in the shade was still damp but the sun was already very bright and warm:
