Too ride, or not too ride!

So as today is my birthday i deserve to go on a birthday ride!! But nooooooo its raining, which doesn't stop me, i have great stories about riding in the rain! I haven't ridden my bike in two weeks for more than 5 minutes on my driveway once! that is a serious lack of biking, i usually go for an hour or so everyday! so i get to test my three month old bike, in the rain for the first time seriously! it hasn't rained around here significantly since october 11 exactly one month ago. Its always more interesting in the rain! see yall later.

So the ride was okay. The bike did better than expected, the trails were aweful. I grabbed the brakes onces and the grass over a 10 foot section ceased to exist. After that i left the trails.

thanks, unfortunatly, one of my friends does the morning announcements at our school, announced my birthday over the intercom, so the whole school knew, after i asked him not too. then three other friends made a poster with me drilling a whole in a concrete wall in the school while sitting on a ladder, and it said happy birthday schmitty(It somehow changed from smitty to that) and then it had a picture of a downhiller on it. there must have been 15 of them, and when i tried to remove them, i was threatened with covering a huge window in these posters so i left them.
