OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS. I rode the trails at Washington Township Park in Avon with Brandon Bowles for a while yesterday afternoon. Brandon's a great trail rider and it was all this 46-year old could do to keep him in sight. Some mountain bike lover created this bridge--one of several--in the matrix of trails at the park. Autumn's the best time to ride mountain bikes in the woods. Trails are dry. Trees are in full color. Leaves are falling. The air is crisp. You've just got to carve out a small chunk of time to be in the moment of these incredible days.
