I could be accused of under-utilizing my 29’r and I would deserve it. But I do have photographic proof of at least the occasional foray into single track territory. A couple of weeks ago I rode the MCC Clear Lake cyclathon (trail ride around Clear Lake). It was a blast. Camping Friday night, 64 riders on Saturday, lots of mud, good food, over $40,000 raised for women’s education in Afghanistan and I even took home a sweet prize (hammock from Ten Thousand Villages) now swinging between the trees in my backyard. The rains the previous week made for some real challenging muck and water sections. I don’t think I’ve ridden approx 1/8 km under 3 feet of water before!
