I finaly rode my 20" DX on some four wheeler trails out on my churches property. I have explored these trails before today on both foot and b***.
It’s a realy fun bunch of trail for muni but it’s not good for b***ing.
After riding off of the parking lot. There is a 300 yrd length of field to ride untill i reach and ooold overgrown paintball field where there is an ATV trail that runs through the middle of the paintball course and eventually spits out over a steep rock, into a fork in the trail. Go right and you’re in a large puddle. I rather go left becouse after the puddle on the right you are pretty much on the highway.
So, going left there is a long straight away with many rocks. If i had an actual muni i would have loved to have to have gone fast. but Alas i do not. So i rode nice and steady… then fell flat on my face… so i got back on… then continued.
When i checked out the trail in the past the next puddle wasen’t bad… but it rained… hard. Now the puddle took up most of the visable trail untill the next bend. i didn’t want to get wet so i decided not to ride it. sooo i took another left instead. this left took me to a rigorous uphill line with some rocks halfway up.
So i sta… and then my phone rings in my camelbak. So i stoped, took my camelbak off halfway,and relized it was a stupid text. i walk down the 5 feat i covered before the text, and began again. on my way up, i look down at the ground, carefully planning my route as i go. it seemed that i was hopi… ring ring eh? Another text, this time i answered and told them to hold off the texting. by now i’m tired. So i started half-way before rocks. For some reason the only thing going through my mind was the song “crazy train” by black sabbath. I finaly reach the top nearly out of breath. i started my way down the hil and eventually back to the fork where i began.
coming to the fprk in the trail to my right is the rock i “rode in on.” so i sized it up, and relized it was alot harder then thought it would be and took about 10 tries to get up it in SIF.
That is when i looked at my hand and see a large blister under my pinky/anular finger.It was deep under the skin. I couldn’t tell what it was at the time so i mindlessly stretch out my hand and a shot of pain runs up my arm. and that is when i relised why so many municyclers wear gloves. " well there goes my ride." i thought “my seatpost was loose anyway.” so i started my way back to the church.
well that was pretty much todays muni… in a nutshell i’ll take some pictures and video of the trails i rode on later.
