Aw right, I finally had a chance to ride along the railways tracks for the kilometre or so on my commute to work. I had been eyeing up this ‘detour’ from my usual route along the sidewalk for a while now. Then we had about three days of torrential rain… I mean it really poured… a lot of wet drops even for us rusty Vancouverites!
So gave it a couple of days for the flood waters to subside and then I headed alongside the railway tracks where there was a wee ‘path’, in a manner of speaking.
All in all it was good fun for the first 2/3’s of the way but then I ran into the muddy section. First big mud bog my uni hit, it stopped and I just kept right on going… at least it was a soft landing…LOL
So, I come to you more experienced uni/MUni’ers for tips on how to handle mud. Anything that can be done to keeping riding when the mud appears, besides trying to plain old, go around it or walk through it?
