I’ll tell you, I am awfully glad that we have some areas with Decomposed Granite trails around Prescott, because the other trails turn to mud and muck when it rains.
Today Kent and I went out to Granite Basin Lake to ride some of the DG trails because we have had two nights of rain recently, and almost anywhere else would be too muddy to ride….well, not to muddy to ride, but so muddy that we would muck up our bikes and more importanly, we would have torn up the trails.
We only spent about an hour actually riding today, but it sure was nice. There was no one else on the trails, the DG surface was tacky, and the temperature was cool…..that spells perfect conditions.
Kent has decided to race in the Duathlon that I am organizing and putting on during the Ides of March. He is always such a good help as a volunteer, but I am very glad that he is racing instead this time.
You really don’t need to BEWARE the Ides of March, just sign up for the Go! Off Road Duathlon and spend them with us!
