Slow Ride

I had a rare Friday off due to a crisis at work previously in the week, which lead to an all-nighter and associated comp time. I had a choice of riding areas because it was dry all week, but Thursday night the heavens opened up. Rain bodes ill for my urge to do more off road riding. Several of the most popular riding areas in the region really need to be left alone to dry out after any rain at all. Fortunately, I live close to a wonderful rocky ridge called Catoctin Mountain, which is a good place to ride because it drains so well. So, although at first I was going to skip the ride Friday completely, I roused myself to the effort and was rewarded by a fantastic ride in the dark damp woods, with not another soul on the trails.
