SEPTEMBER 2023


THE TRAILS SMELL LIKE APPLES

Despite the recent heat wave it is definitely hinting of autumn. Some trees are showing a bit of colour and there are some leaves on the ground.

The real hint of autumn is the fruit on the ground. Apple trees, both eating type and crab apples, are dropping fruit everywhere. On some trails it is hard to ride without running over some of them. Depending on the trail the fragrance of apple is unmistakable.

There is also the distinctive crunch of acorn shells under tire. The squirrels have been busy. If there is any danger it is walnuts. Come around a corner fast and get into a bunch of trail walnuts and you might as well be riding on golf balls. Still, it is a wonderful time of year to be out riding.
