That Wetness that was Sunday

Some more.. ahem.. Wet weather riding which featured wet weather .

I really need to find a decal company that will make me small bikes with an electric bolt through the middle  so I can put on the side of my bike like an air force pilot has markings for his kills on the sides of the plane.

The ride was a mix of valley and residential neighbourhood riding trying to find entrances to the valley.

All in all, best ride of the off set so far despite the extreme lack of singletrack. The lower river valley trails are all either underwater or were previously underwater so your best bet is to stay high up in those hills kids. Meh... It's probably muddy there too.

I would post GPS tracks for this but I shut off my Strava App halfway through. Whoops.
