Mushing Season is Coming

The temperatures are finally starting to cool down here in central NJ. Well, aside from today’s muggy hotness, but the forecast shows a crisp fall weekend ahead.

I tuned up my bike and re-attached my bikejor piece, so that’s ready to roll.

Now I just have the following things to take care of:

Air in the dog carts’ tires
Fix the tail light/wiring on the trailer
Renew the registration on the trailer
After that, we’ll really be all set! I’m hoping to get at least one local run in this week. Then, if all goes as planned, I’ll take the dogs to Six Mile Run this weekend. It’s a beautiful trail I found while hiking this spring/summer. It’s actually a trail meant for bikes, so it should be perfect for running the team.

I’d prefer to start out with my heavy training cart, but that requires my trailer to be ready – which I don’t think will happen by this weekend. So, I’ll most likely take them out with the small cart, which I can throw on my bike rack for easy transport.

I can’t wait to run ‘em, especially now that I have a bunch of new trails to try out from all my hiking trips. I think this is going to be a great season.
