The Nashua River Rail Trail on the ElliptiGO

I just wanted to relax and enjoy the 32 miles I rode today, so I stopped a couple of times to get some pictures on the Nashua River Rail Trail. It starts about three miles from my house and travels south through Massachusetts. It is straight and flat. I was hoping to get more variety in the photos on the way home, but then a cyclist went by me and the race was on.

Starts right on Gilson Road in Nashua and goes 12.3 miles to Ayer, Ma.

It is nice to know that there is now a porta-john halfway into my favorite running route and
at the start of the Rail Trail,

That is some type of bike rack artwork in the middle of the route.
It ends in Ayer, Ma. Then you turn around and come home.

How are you liking your ElliptiGO? Looks really cool and seems like a fairly good alternative to running.

Frank, it is absolutely a blast. Feels like running with no joint pains. I can get the heart rate up, the lungs expanding, and a good burn in my legs and when I am done, I feel great without any of the side effects of cycling. I can't wait to get out and ride it each day.
