The leaf Whisperer





A return from work and a return to the trails on the Altitude after a major drivetrain rebuild performed by brethren member Kent. The ride from old school Mill Creek to the river where I danced around Forest Heights mid Ewok and then back through Holy Trail and Old Timers where a Dirty Mattress climb out took place. All this was ridden after crossing the Low level and riding up into Riverdale and down to the Dawson.

The trails were hit or miss. I was expecting full on Paved or multi use but a roll through Earthshaker in Mill Creek told me that the trails were dry enough to ride. The only issue? The copious amount of leaves that covered the trail. No I'm not complaining, Fall is the best time of year to ride bikes you just have to be on your toes is all. The lower Mill Creek trails were pretty wet so I stayed away the best I could.

As I entered the area in Mill Creek where the new monstrosity house looms it would seem the twats (sorry, I'll be nicer) ahem... fuckwits moved in (I'm sorry. I just can't.) The new house comes with a very yappy large dog which at the time seemed to bark relentlessly at all the trail users in the area. Oh  how perfectly fucking fitting. Could I hate this house even more?

I didn't ride the Trap which kinda bugs me now. I think I really messed up in that there is an unwritten rule when riding Mill Creek and the trail Gods permit you to ride the good stuff without wet interference. The Trap must be ridden. It must! I'm sorry trail Gods.

I really hope this isn't going on my permanent record.
