so you can't tell really from the photos, but we got soaked. nothing like riding at 11,500 feet (kenosha pass to georgia pass) and getting drenched. ;)

mountain bikes are made to get dirty, right?

The Ice Man's mule is parked
Outside the bar
Where a man with missing fingers
Plays a strange guitar
And the German dwarf
Dances with the butcher's son
And a little rain never hurt no one
And a little rain never hurt no one

They're dancing on the roof
And the ceiling's coming down
I sleep with my shovel and my leather gloves
A little trouble makes it worth the going
And a little rain never hurt no one

The world is round
And so I'll go around
You must risk something that matters
My hands are strong
I'll take any man here
If it's worth the going
It's worth the ride

She was 15 years old
And never seen the ocean
She climbed into a van
With a vagabond
And the last thing she said
Was "I love you mom"

And a little rain
Never hurt no one
and a little rain
Never hurt no one

Uncle Bill has never made a will,
and the tumor is as big as an egg.
He has a mistress, she's Puerto Rican,
and they say she has a wooden leg.

My personal favorite line of his.:thumbsup:

Nice pics, makes me wish I had gotten in the saddle. My conscience got the best of me though, so I went out for a nice long trail run instead. Soaking wet and grinning ear to ear....I love weather like that. Doesn't happen here often enough.

Great pics. Looks like a nice ride. But I have to disagree about the rain.

I went out to my local trail Saturday. It has some wooden boardwalks over part of the trails. Now I KNOW these get slick after a rain. They have some algae build up and never get direct sunlight. I slowed down considerably from my normal pace and proceeded down the first boardwalk. At the first turn, by front tire kept going straight and I busted by butt. After shaking it off, I rode off that boardwalk to the next one. Cautiously I proceeded at an even slower pace, maybe 5 or 6 mph. I got to a slight turn to the left and the bike went straight, bounced off the railing on the right, bounced to the left guard rail and I fell flat on my a--!. When I got up to walk my bike off of the boardwalk, I nearly slipped just trying to stand up. Those wood planks were the slickest thing I have ever tried to walk on, including ice. I can't believe I didn't fall sooner.

So yes, a little rain does hurt...sometimes.

Hi - Its nice to see rain somewhere else other that out of my front room window or through my misted up sun glasses! Here in Europe and especialy the North of England we had an unusually long wet spell during spring and early summer - Riding through mud and over wet roots sure sharpens your bike handling skills but we were desperate for some warm dry sunshine. It finally arrived in the UK about four weeks and at last the trails are dry and dusty. You can see some photos of my club 25 mile ride around the local moors and dales(Bolton Abbey and Flasby Fell) if you follow this link http://ntlworld.photobox.co.uk/album/3432065

There's nothing strange about a ax with bloodstains in the barn.
There's always some killing to be done around the farm.

Or maybe:

Big Jack Earl was eight feet one
And he stood in the road and he cried
He could make her love him and he couldn't make her stay
Tell the good lord that he tried
