Finally, we are getting moisture in the valley. It seems like it has rained everyday in the afternoon and the trails are getting good. On the 4th I had the day off(until 6pm) and decided go out for a long ride rather than join the town festivities. Sometimes it pays to be an introvert.
After an amazing descent to Brush Creek, I started plodding up into the clouds. A 1 mile hike-a-bike up block and tackle and it was back to buff trails.
A ripping descent into Cement Creek that I have never done before. I then motivated to ride back to CB south on waterfall creek cutoff. I was raining pretty good at this point so the trail was incredibly tacky.
I had a rather nasty flat descending back into CB South when a rock flcked and snapped off my valve stem and then my pump broke. I got soaked to the bone after this but excited to get a long ride on, even though I missed the parade.
