Stony Creek Mud Bath

Just as I was leaving the office today, the sky opened up and poured rain. I drove to Stony Creek anyhow. By the time I got to the trailhead, the rain was just a trickle, and the trail was nice and sloppy.

Karate Monkey in the woods

I have gotten so used to bikes with fenders, I forgot how nasty things get without them.

I also forgot to bring bike shoes, so I just rode in my “fancy office shoes.” They ended up a lot less fancy.

Dirty Shoe

I decided that I was already a mess, so I tried to hit every puddle I came to.

Muddy Parts

I had a blast. The Monkey is very a fun bike. Bouncing over rocks and roots and splashing mud all over the place is awesome.

That's me!

Today: 12 miles (wild-ass guess)
June: 61 miles
2007: 551.5 miles

  1. That last pic has me laughing out loud. We all can relate to taking a new toy and playing in the mud. Did you get yelled at when you went walking in the house? Glad the new ride is appropriately broken in.

  2. I just got a new one also, same color. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As a single-speed it’s the most fun I’ve ever had with my pants on.
