Old and hopeless
Yep, for sure. The bike, and I were sodden and totally covered in muck. Buckle was awash really. The high dry side was good though, and grippy as. After the ride, I had to completely change my clothes, as there was no way I could get back in the car like that. When I got home, my kids looked at me, and both laughed out loud, as my face was covered in it. Anyway, rinsing out my riding gear in the laundry, I was amazed at how much sand there was in the sink. Which might explain why it is so hard on the bike in the wet. BTW, I washed my bike as soon as I got home. And am drying my helmet, gloves, camelback and shoes on the hydronic panels, for tomorrow. I know it's not kosher for the trails really, but I just love the slipping and sliding. It adds another dimension to the ride.How's the bike though, that place is hard on the bike in the wet!
