After the long cold winter I’ve endured this mild dry spell is just perfect. Riding in shorts and a t-shirt, throwing a dusty (not muddy) bike in the back of the car, sweat dripping into the lenses of my glasses, warm sunshine beaming down on me at the top of my local hill…..bliss.
This weather! Local trails last night are now officially too dry
All the exposed rock is now loose and pinging all over the place. The normally buff and fast singletrack is now a sandpit, making it waaaayyy too draggy on the climbs, and terrible to control on the descents.
Add in the factor of it being too warm and getting a heck of a sweat on and getting dehydrated, and it takes all the fun out of it.
oooh definately too dry;im not going through a set of pads in a weekend, my camelbak hose isnt freezing up, my back wheel isnt jamming in the frame because its so caked in mud, yeah march/april were wonderful
