The Muddier, The Merrier

The Merry Month of May. I sent out an invite to a ride out to Nuvali. Two answered the call. We met up at Nuvali parking and hightailed south along Nuvali Drive. The sky is grey, heavy and ripe for rain.

All smiles despite the gloomy weather

Thunderstorm alert, we need to stop at the Gazebo/Bird Sanctuary
A piece of useful info on some of the wildlife found in this neck of the woods

Waiting for the thunderstorm to stop, photo ops in the meantime

Thirty minutes later, when the rain stopped, I showed them the short trail inside the Wildlife Sanctuary

A Nuvali ride can't be considered complete without the Gazebo shot
My turn!

And now for some serious 5-inches of fun (120mm of front suspension), a ride to half-foot deep water puddle, muddy trail, disorienting ride in the dark!

Sorry Cookie, I promise I will disassemble your drivetrain and give you a thorough cleaning, no rides tomorrow, promise
It's hard to see in the dark, even with thee lights. I need to get those high power LED lights
Yalla! Hurry up! hehehehe
We did it!

A dirty bike means a happy mountainbiker
Mud-blanketed drive train, oy no complaints here, I love it!

Bitin, this boy wants more mud action!

We cleaned our bikes and parted ways with a smile on our faces.
