My Pics

We finally gave up, and were riding back down on Indian Canyon... I was feeling a bit cocky as it was starting to look like I would escape the mountain without hitting the ground - then it happened!

I hit frozen mud (slush?) that was weak enough to give away as I was riding on the "dirt" in between the tire ruts. I got too close to one side and it collapsed under me, pulling my front tire left and the rest of the bike right - catapulting me off my bike and into the other rut.

Currently no skid plate, and stuck on street-only tires until work starts up again.
