Splatter.

21 Jul 2007 at 17:58 Filed Under:

A high splatter day meant another set of pads magically disappeared. (bedded in somemake Organics - which are all I had) - they did last almost to the end of the ride, but I needed to scare lots of people into moving out of the way towards the end as braking was no longer an option for me. Oh and when did we start riding on the right of trails? KEEP LEFT?

Not a very good ride, my right knee blew up in the first 12 miles after battling the MF wind again, it rained heavily 3 times, the trails are very very bumpy now, I was really slow. blah blah blah 40.2miles.

There are no rules offroad! Well apart from the country code but that doesn't tell you which side to ride on.

yeah, but in general we in this country stick to the left, especially if you see someone coming right at you. instead of swapping sides of the path to the slightly less bumpy side, I assume they did this because 4 inches of travel can't cope with 1 inch stones.
