Hi All,

I just had my most recent ride ability challenge and happily found out that I'm pretty good at looking far enough ahead while riding.

The ride was 1 mile on a yet to be graded/fixed dirt road with loose gravel and 3% spaces of incline/decline. There were deep ruts made by heavy cars and a very narrow band of pack to ride along.  The narrow band wasn't a simple straight line either.  That meant a planned where to try and cross the ruts to find next section of barely fit the tires on sort of flat surface.  A few places had scattered 1 1/2" rock where people attempted to repair the end of their driveways.

Oh, I did just fine.  I'm sure you would have too.  However, I would challenge you to try this with biting blackflies inside your helmet!  That must have happened when saying good bye to my friend, helmet on and visor open.  

The return to normal road surface was downhill.  Try steering, light braking and looking where to go next with those buggers chewing away on your scalp.  Things kind of get out of focus when shaking head.  Ah, to live in the North Country!  -- Speaking of, I had to get up and remove 4 ticks while writing this.

If there's not enough wind to stop the flies landing and biting, you're obviously not going fast enough! Wink
