Mud and Hills

The forecast for Saturday was calling for some sun and temps in the upper forties, so we thought it would be a perfect day to get out and ride our frog survey  route and see what we could hear. We rode 25 miles altogether with about 5 miles of hilly, dirt roads mixed in.

This is the last time our bikes would be clean.

It had just rained and snowed overnight, which made our tires sink in halfway to the rim at some points.

Begrimed Bottom Bracket
The aftermath. This could be the cause of my shifting problems.

Curious bystanders. Moooove it along, nothing to see here.


  1. There seems to be a rather large disparity in height between you two.
    Or at least bike size.
    I dig cows too.
    Though I like the black and white ones better.

  2. It looks like you have found nice quiet roads to ride up there. The cow pics are fine in my book, as my inlaws would not take kindly to dissing the Herefords.
