So yeah, half hungover this morning, grab my bike from my bro's where I ditched it to head out drinking yesterday afternoon (after eating up a final exam). Heading off for a bit of trails before I grab some brunch, take one little trail that looked like a shortcut to the path I was heading for. Little did I realize there was a 4 foot drop before it joined up to the paved path (ones closer to the river were still mud at this point). Saw it at the last second...swore instead of reacting...face became one with pavement.
On the plus side, I'm not the body that was found imbedded in some ice just down-river from where I smoked myself! Saskatoon is an exciting place.
For anyone coming here to ride: The Diefenbaker trails south of the Dief train bridge were muddy and **** yesterday, but should dry up by tomorrow if the sun and heat stays out. The trails north of Circle bridge on the east side are decent, few little bits of wet, but easy ride through. Managed to find a new little bit of technical riding when I was up there after crashing. Trails on west side of river are tight and dry up till where the city has flattened out some of the terrain (by Silverspring). It always takes forever for the ice floes to melt in there. Didn't go further north there.
Enjoy the good riding everyone.
