Ride Report... August 11 2018 trail ride
« on: August 12, 2019, 08:42:39 AM »
Work has been rough, and I needed get out and stretch my bike riding legs...  I rode solo... so I stuck to the double track and the easier trails, and even backed off the speed a little.  The soil it clay based (dry hard pack) with lots of rocks.  On the 1st loop I came down a long steep hill, only to want to turn right, but the front tire caught a rut and the bike decided to left... so I was quickly dismounted and to ease my fall, a nice large bolder was there for my knee to land on...  yes I got a boo-boo... and yes it hurts like hell...  but I rode on...  can't let a little thing like that get in the way of a ride... 

As requested I did pull out the GoPro and took some video...  This was after the fall, so I toned it down a bit... plus I was a little lazy....  just wanted to get out for a ride

The video does not show just how rough the terrain really is.  With clay based soil and with the amount of rain we've had, the ruts were deep, but now they're dried up and create a whole new obstacle...  ;D
