    Share your rain-muddy pictures.

    I went for a ride and it started raining. Great.

    I'll play, winter is well underway here and everything is getting greasy. Will take pics after my next ride.

    The gritty Rotorua mud makes a bit of a change from our usual Northland clay-mud. This was a month or so ago at Crankworx.

    The dogs have to watch their following distance on wet days too.

    Coming off of Monarch Crest after three hours of hard rain and lightning. We were more cold than dirty.

    Dirty pics - share them!-100_0105.jpg

    ...56 miles total to ride two MTB courses connected by farm lanes and roads in central Ohio. That was about my limit. All that mud came mostly from the farm lanes. The trails were not bad at all; just wet.
    btw - that drivetrain was still working perfectly.

    Few years ago early spring. We rode along a frozen river bank. The surface was hard as concrete until the sun came out and it was enough to start thawing. It didn't take long for our wheels to get caked with clay.

    What trails? You have the route laying around? I'm toying with putting together a gravel/mtb bikepacking route. Thanks!

    Dirt is from a crash on our local shuttle trail, shoulder is out, this is during the walk out to head to the ER. My buddy Dark Mavis ~06. Shirt is in memory of Jeremy Demers, Evil rider from their old days in New England.


    On the lift at Sunday River in 02ish. Pouring rain, Maine mud and tech, old school fall line trails. Riding solo, only a couple other people on the mt. Epic day.

    I was going to PM you, but this info might be useful to others.

    Contact either HWB Cycling in Zanesville, or Appalachia Outdoor Adventures (AOA) for the old Mayhem route (before it was an enduro race). The route went along the safari park (The Wilds), and also comprises most if not all of the current enduro course. It's really a fun route!

    Awesome, thanks. I just did a gravel ride down by the Wilds last weekend, such a great area to ride. Actually started from the MTB trailhead.

    You can usually tell how much fun you're having by how much of a mess you make. That's true for most things.
    Learning from your mistakes is good. Learning from someone else's is better.

    Sorry, but this is about the dirtiest that I've gotten in the last 6 years, it just doesn't rain here.

    Well, he was on the Cat 1 podium at the end. But obviously he just wiped his face off.

    Thanks! We've got a ton of great photos from the end of the first stage, but riders weren't as filthy by that point. Mostly wet and dirt-splattered.



    It was that last two stages that really covered them. Some riders looked absolutely frightening. One of the wrenches at the local shop, for example:



    I stayed pretty clean as a course marshal, but I looked like a homeless man. With a vuvuzela.



    (Obligatory disclaimer: the trails are fine. Minimal damage, limited to ruts in places and a couple cut-up corners, all repaired 2 days later. The trails look better than ever, and the race traffic actually improved them.)

    That is horrible, Hawg. I cannot believe that you let your bike get that dirty.
