Swing and The Mudman!

Posted in , , , , by Laughing Soul | Edit
Greetings readers.
How is everyone doing tonight? I am alright. I had a Highly productive day if I must say so myself. I got to wake up this morning and go to another swing dance class at the gym. It was a lot of fun. We learned a new turn called a zip turn. I had a lot of fun and cannot wait till the class is fully started and I can go for 8 weeks and I can get back out and move!

After the swing dance class I decided it was time for another bike ride. The weather was supposed to be 60 all weekend and when I walked out after a little nap after the dance class, the weather was warm and the sun was shining and the little voice inside my head screamed, BIKE RIDE!!!
So what am I supposed to do? Ignore the screaming thrill junkie that lives in my ear? Of course not, we all know that would be a bad thing.
It was a beautiful day! Let me tell you. I finally got to go on my favorite trail. Difficult run!

The entrance to Difficult Run.

I really wish that there was a way for me to take my camera with and attach it to "honey" so I can show you a little video of the trail itself. One day I will figure it out. But let me tell you, with all the melted snow, the trail was 100% muddy. I barely hit a dry part in the run. Now I know that MTB is bad on muddy trails and it destroys everything on the trail but in my defense, it did not get muddy until I was a little ways in and I could not turn back. But either way I had a great time and feel amazing even though by the end of my ride I and " Honey" was covered head to toe with mud. Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.


My Bike Honey all Dirty. She was a lot worse off before I got her home. Imagine the tires twice as big with mud. Had to ride through a few wetspots.



My poor Chain Ring and Front Derailer

My legs before I started washing off my bike. Dried mud is itchy!

This is the difference between dirt and clean. Taken after getting wet cleaning the bike.
(Gross I know but you can deal with it)

My ride all clean. Cannot wait to get out there and get her all muddy again!

Have a great night everyone!
