Saturday Offroad Ride
I rode the trail at Theodore Wirth Park on Saturday afternoon. It was really lonely. I saw one other rider. The neighboring golf course was even deserted.
The trail maintainers added a section of obstacles. The park is built on a dump from very long ago. They used some of the old asphalt chunks from a road to build the obstacles. I rode this new section once and avoided it on later laps.
I didn't ride the obstacles again, because I kept thinking of crashing on an asphalt chunk. The last time I fell on asphalt my body hurt so badly that I can still feel it. I was showing my son that I could bunny hop a razor scooter. I launched a couple little jumps and then fell down.
It didn't look like much, but it hurt like much. I might have said a bad word that day.
Anyway, I took these photos to show the long shadows of late afternoon in the fall (via CreepyCam).
I bought a new CreepyCam and I'll take some underwhelming shots with it on this afternoon's ride.
