what to do?

In the NY/ NJ area it has been a really wet past couple of weeks. What do you do to keep riding even when the trails are all too muddy?

I try to get out and ride urban stuff. If you keep moving from one spot to the next you can get a good workout in.

+1. Urban sessioning can fill the gap.

It's been just as wet and rainy in CT. I've been spending time on the road bike. Still managing 115 - 130 miles a week despite the weather.

i live in NJ. I ride to work. I have some roadish beasts with fenders, to avoid the wet-@$$ syndrome.

there are some half-@$$ed trails along my commute, so i take a mtb when it's dry and roll thru the woods for 10 minutes here and there.
