Turned back by Mother Nature! Tonight’s ride POINT seven miles…
Hello all, I have yet to turn back from a ride because I was too tired, too sore, it was too windy… Or for any other reason that I can remember.
But tonight Mother Nature turned me back! The total ride was less than a mile! What did she throw at me?… Not a Tornado or Hurricane… It was gnats. AN UBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF GNATS!
Almost instantly they were everywhere. In the nose, in the ears, covering everything that faced forward… And when I opened my mouth to suggest that we turn back… I paid the price.
We laughed, and stated that we should bring the camera along on every ride for just such a situation. I thought we would not be able to adequately describe just how many there were. And it dawned on me… a lot of them are still on the bike. So I took a close up picture.
THIS is what every inch of us that was facing forward looked like… Actually some inches, (such as the beard, which captured them nicely, were much worse!)
