[QUOTE=Cuttle;20477345] ...and second I pulled the seat of (by accident) on the previous "courtesy crash". [QUOTE]


There are a few missing pieces to her story which I can fill in, because I was right behind her on the trail and saw the whole thing.

Conditions were very slick and muddy in spots, the kind of slick that will cause your bike to kick out sideways in a flat spot suddenly, causing a spontaneous moment of seat clenching pucker factor 10 'cause you just know you're gonna go down. Greasy slick.

It was in one of those spots up ahead of me that I saw her bike suddenly kick over and fall on its side, and she just kinda stepped off and was standing there looking at it, one hand on hip and the other on the side of her helmet, like WTF?, and the seat was stuck in the crack of her bum!

After a couple of seconds she must have relaxed because the seat suddenly dropped to the ground behind her. And that's the whole story of how she lost her seat.

That's a lot of work....and I am lazy. Besides, I should be pretty much useless by the time I get back.

When?

You should wear a Spot tracker on your head the whole time so we can keep an eye on you.

I want to dedicate the following ride to the makers of Patagonia fleece long johns: "I'm to sexy for my bike"

hmm maybe not the best road conditions - yet.... ...but the sun is out

less than a mile up the road




along Bald Mountain Creek


my original plan was to take Hwy19 past the big rock slide (that was supposed to be open today), over Spivey Gap and back on Hwy23. Turns out they are still dynamiting the crap out of the rock and the detour was all the way back to Burnsville.... shoot

explored some side roads in the hope to shortcut over to Jacks Creek - after 1/2 a dozen of this ice sheets I decided to stick to the lower elevation instead... plans are made to be broken!


much better!









and that's a pic I took the other day, it doesn't really has anything to do with this ride, but you gotta look at it anyway

No ice or snow down here, but we do have plenty of snow "birds" (from NC I think)
