My forearms have been stinging all day from this morning’s ride… seems to be more nettles than usual this year! Maybe give Flats a pass unless you’ve got sleeves.

Other than squishy low bits, surfaces are not too bad actually… as long as you remember those wet roots are super slippery. With today’s sun and heat, things should dry…[Read more]
