Whether out on a ramble, a race, or a run
Scrambling through brambles, ‘cross a field in the sun
While deep in dark woods, dodging roots with no one
Or back of the pack in a push-paced peloton
Whilst bouncing off babyheads, battling boulders
Or rounding a corner, looking up, I behold her
On a hazy horizon, gazing over her shoulder
Imagined or real, a bold image takes hold here
Ascutney accosts me, she calls me, she claims me
The rock pile’s proud profile will always amaze me
Rolling her trails is, again, where I aim to be
This Tuesday, return to her great scenic greenery
Right here with me
Tuesday, August 18th, meet in the parking lot of the Ascutney Outdoors Center, 449 Ski Tow Rd, Brownsville, VT 05037 at 5:45. We will form groups according to ability/preferred level of exertion. At six, we roll out for a ride of about 2 hours.
All are welcome.
