ooh, so like autumn tonight, lots of leaves, mud, greasey roots and a slight drizzle but still warm enough to get a sweat on, getting soaked from wet folliage on the trail edge, do we don’t we use lights yet? 3 falls from the front tyre sliding out from under me as i hit roots in “summer style” expecting the same amount of grip that was there on the last ride. time to adjust to the winter riding style of riding perpendicular to roots, dropping the tyre pressures for more grip etc. it’s the waning of the year and my thoughts are turning once again to Fat Bikes, maybe more on this in the coming weeks.
please note: i rescued this post from a stream, the post was rotten at the bottom and had eithe fallen in the stream or been deliberately put there, so we were NOT removing signs from an existing trail (unless the trail was via the centre of the Earth…)
