    Funday Ride

    Start of the trail. Decided to have a cigrit and some water before the first attempt.

    I find a great way to clean you rear tire, is to spin it in sand.

    Practicing in that stuff/slop will make the solid stuff seem easy! But as you mentioned less friendly on falls.

    With all those blueberries my wife would be making a lot of blueberry cobbler/crisp - one of my favs.
    We have boat loads of blackberries in this area.

    Blackberries are pretty awesome!

    Instead of just random posts. I'll put this here instead. I'm thinking about painting my bike, or getting a spare set of plastics, idk yet. I just played around with Microsoft Paint and came up with this;

    It was actually kinda fun using MSPaint. I really wish I knew how to use Photoshop. Being able to "try on" different fenders, parts, etc, would be pretty cool.

    Looks like a fun ride!

    Heh,

    It was a political sign from about a year ago, I guess. I just thought it was an odd location for one. It isn't exactly a remote area, but you don't get a lot of foot traffic, either. I decided to stealthily hide it in the background, 'cause it had someone's name and email address on it. Not looking to cause anyone grief.

    I love riding in mud. Not sure why, exactly. I'm not gonna lie, I wrecked pretty bad one time, because I turned my head around to see my "roost" as I was going through a muddy section. Also, the last 4 pictures, I was having a great time. Then in the 4th picture, it's hard to make out, but there is a damn beaver dam. I guess it was about 2.5 - 3' high, grass growing out of it, slippery too. ATVs were able to get over it, I didn't even try - beyond my skill level. All of those pictures were probably taken within ~ 10 square kilometer area, probably not even that much, really. There are also a bunch of sand/gravel/aggregate pits nearby. Saw 2 guys having a helluva time in a custom Maverick.

    For me, by far the hardest surface to ride so far, is loose sand, especially when it hasn't rained and is dusty dry. I've noticed some MX tracks, and it appears as though they are "skipping" across the sand, while I'm sort of riding the contours. Try and pick up the pace, maybe?
