WHAT IS IT WITH RUTS? Some say they are graves with the ends kicked out. I'll tell ya this, when ripping some single track...
... a rut can put you on your lycra in not time.
Which brings up today's ride.
Surfergirl and I got up to Big Bear early, before the rest of the family.
After unloading, I shot out for a structured work out...
... at least that was the plan.
But, then I found myself on Skyline a beautiful fast and flowy trail that traces the highest ridge between Big Bear and the greater LA Basin.
Not a soul out there.
Riding where I hadn't ridden for at least 5 years...
... the whole time I'm asking myself...
... Why aren't we up here once a month in when it's warm?
Here's how people try to ride out of ruts:
- Ride in the rut and hope for the best
- Trying to ride up the side and out
- Bounce out
For me, the best solution is to bounce out.
If I want to exit on the left side of the rut, I will steer into the right side...
... to bounce off it and out the left side.
Which is what we are doing this weekend.
