This afternoon I followed up my morning trail run with a short mountain bike ride. Like the trail run, it was wet on the ride.
I rode through many of the same creeks as I had run through in the morning and also enjoyed some drier sections of track.
My brakes finally gave way on the way back home so I had to walk a few steep downhills to prevent injury. I’ll drop the bike at the mechanic tomorrow because I haven’t been able to get the brakes right since the bike fell off the back of the car on 31 December. Perhaps the mechanic can fix the problem for me now that the brakes have totally quit on me.
The last stretch of trail home through the grass field was extreme. There was a 100+m section of the track where the water almost covered my wheels. Somehow I managed to stay on and ride through the deep water. It felt pretty extreme (see photo accompanying this post).
Total: 9.5km mountain bike ride
