Did some close to home trails. This time last year the trails were dry because of the low snowfall. This year we had more snow so the trails are a lot muddier. Keeps the dust down at least.
Normally this part of the trail is dry with a little mud-hole to the right. I could see the bottom so I ventured across. Towards the center, it dropped off slightly. Water over the top of high top boots! TW engines are a lot quieter when submerged. Back brake was non-existent for a few miles and when it did start working, squawked terribly when used until it dried out completely.
Rest of the ride was a little easier and enjoyable, with the exception of very wet a cold feet. Still, great to get out after a long winter. About 25 miles, 1.5 hrs.
