A year on the Trail – 2020 at Woburn Bike Trails

I know for many, positives are a hard notion to associate with 2020, after all, it’s been a year of mixed emotions, frustrations and denial of basic freedoms we have come to expect.

My 2020 Christmas Day

Purposeful Adventure With restrictions, evolving and confusing guidance, new laws, social pressure and a host of other variables that float in the subconscious, a construct of our current society, much of this our own interpretations and standards we set ourselves.
