The long singletrack, Dyer Park

After I replaced both tire tubes (sharp thorns had punctured both tires during my last ride!) the trusty old Marin was ready to hit the long singletrack at Dyer Park. 

The singletrack above cuts across the crest of the “Hill,” 2.7 miles in from the south trailhead. This 560-acre park has a good network of trails, including a 4.7-mile perimeter trail. I pedaled 6.8 miles, and it seemed like there were several miles more of singletrack still to explore.

I crossed paths with a raccoon family, Wood Stork, Ibises, and many other wading birds, and this Red-bellied Woodpecker up in a pine tree.

I was back at the trailhead an hour before dusk, so I biked back out for another short leg of singletrack. I rode out into the wind and circled with it at my back, leaving behind a few of those unexplored trails for the next ride.
