I (or someone I've ridden with) have been flicking off ticks every ride now. Looks like tick season may be upon us, but this seems a little early to me. Anyone else seeing a lot of ticks or am I just having bad luck?

In this area, these could be adult females that are feeding before laying eggs. The females should be laying eggs before May and dying right after. Be careful as certain ticks can spread Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease.
