I put my new bell on the handle bar of the bike, stowed my new inner tube in my back pack, put on my new gloves, packed a banana, a pimento cheese sandwich and filled up two water bottles. I was ready to hit the 'Neuse River Trail'. I started at Falls of the Neuse parking lot and headed down just past Poole Road where there is a park bench beside the trail. that was 30 km. I ate my banana and my pimento cheese sandwich and headed back up the Neuse River.
We've had a lot of rain this year and there was evidence of this all along the trail, especially where Crabtree Creek joins the Neuse River; that was near my turn-around point.
On my way back up river I stopped in the middle of the bike bridge that crosses the neuse a few 10s of meters down river from the Milburnie Dam and took some pictures and a video. You can see the pictures below and see a link to the video I posted to YouTube.
