Sunday, January 20th ride

Please tell me there is a ride! Assemble at Fairbucks at 7:30am? I'm up for mud and exploring thetis/Hartland/willis. More suggestions welcome, but include mud 😀. Weather looks promising.

Hope you guys had fun - out for a week or so while I wait for a new derailleur hanger to arrive.

We achieved the amazing feat of keeping our feet dry AND experiencing plenty of mud. Although, It looks like a bigger ride to explore some uncharted territory will require an earlier start.

Yes, fun ride! Conditions were excellent, we found a few new tidbits around Thetis, and the heavy-duty mud was sporadic enough to remain a joy. The guys indulged my stupid compulsion to take pretentious pictures of my bike in front of nature, we only lost Ron once, and my breakfast wrap featured an inoffensive application of spinach. It's a beautiful life, really.

Earlier, we resolved to pass the hat and help Mark upgrade his bike:

The Tow Whee should solve the "Ron getting lost" thing nicely.
