This was the fall ride. Colors at their finest. The air just a bit crisp. Started out foggy though. The first 20 miles out Independence it was pretty thick. Some where before Elkins the sun broke through, and then it was gorgeous. Maple Grove to Peedee where they have an annual pie, soup and crafts event. I had butternut squash soup and blackberry pie. Back through Kings Valley and Maxfield Creek. I parted with the group to take Berry Creek, Soap Creek, and Sulphur Springs. I wanted to test Grando on the gravel and the fast downhill from Lewisberg Saddle. It did great on both.
