It's rained almost all week, so it's been poor conditions for riding. Today was clear and I got out of class early, so I went exploring. Heading out to the training areas, I turned onto the first dirt road I found (after checking for "do not enter" signs).
The roads were sand and pine needles.
Occasional rutted sections added some challenge
My bike got stuck
and took a nap
But I managed to string together over 8 miles of dirt.
At it's closest point, this track is only a mile from my room, so I'll definitely be back.
