    Years ago I was on a spring ride hauling butt down a serious downhill in Southern California. It was an old fire-road with very bad erosion rutts. I would switch from side to side of the road avoiding the rutts. One of which couldn't be avoided. My front tire was sucked into it about a foot deep rutt at a high rate of speed. I couldn't get up out of the rutt and when the rutt suddenly changed directions my body weight kept going straight. I went flat on my face and the front wheel folded like a taco.

    Caution: Stay out of the rutts.

    yeah... due to some flooding and run-off we have ruts now where they never used to be. It definitely makes picking lines interesting for sure.

    I dunno, you think hippies would create such a subtle message ? This, just to the right of Blue bike.

    Bull and Jake Mountain . Not the most remote or gnarliest of N. GA's trail offerings, but lotsa fun. Did a couple of medium sized loops for about 20 miles of sweet singletrack.
