Just in from a wonderful, albeit muddy ride this morning. Cha-Cha ain't got no mudflaps and I'm sporting the stripe to prove it. Actually, I'm a pretty muddy mess as it was wet out there. Lots of places where water had been over the trails and left debris and mud in it's wake. Cha-Cha just might be a mudder, although I might need a few more mud lessons. Hitting patch of mud can get kind of squirrelly. I really wanted to see what everything looked like after so much rain yesterday, but everything was pretty clear. The river was up some, but I was still able to cross at the dam to get in the complete 22 plus mile out and back ride.
It started to rain while I was out and while I could see the raindrops rippling the river surface, I couldn't feel any discernible drops, so I just kept going. I'm sure the rain will get heavier throughout the day, so I'm glad I got my ride in when I did.
I still haven't made any firm plans other than to finish up the laundry, complete with muddy biking clothes, take a soaky soaky bath. SHIT! Just remembered - still haven't bought shampoo. Another fro day for me! Now where was I, oh, I think I was on my way to Dallas to go to the Farmer's Market and pick up the camping gear from the kids. And a trip to see the kiddos usually translates into Mom buying pizza! Now that sounds like a plan.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Earn your stripes.
