Just as I was leaving the office today, the sky opened up and poured rain. I drove to Stony Creek anyhow. By the time I got to the trailhead, the rain was just a trickle, and the trail was nice and sloppy.
I have gotten so used to bikes with fenders, I forgot how nasty things get without them.
I also forgot to bring bike shoes, so I just rode in my “fancy office shoes.” They ended up a lot less fancy.
I decided that I was already a mess, so I tried to hit every puddle I came to.
I had a blast. The Monkey is very a fun bike. Bouncing over rocks and roots and splashing mud all over the place is awesome.
Today: 12 miles (wild-ass guess)
June: 61 miles
2007: 551.5 miles
