Rode up on Friday…….the mud was positively impressive. The new, unpacked roadowork, goodly amount of rain, thawing snow and truck traffic = spectacular mud. Once onto the trails, Skidder/Hidden Pleasures was muddier than I've seen it in a while and the 'wheel suck' meant almost coming up short on a few things I never give any thought to. Nice little adrenalin surge.
