I love this shit
Some of my most memerable rides have been when it's raining.
You say "I just don't give a fuck" and you ride.
So you get a little dirty (for the record, the trails around here are cement hard this time of year especially with the lack of rain this Spring. More fir needles and decomposing leaves than actual mud or dirt), and as long as you're moving you stay warm. Just think how good the shower is going to feel?
In my experience, it is most slippery when the sun comes out and things start drying. There is a transitional slime between wet and dry. Keep off the front brake and let the rear come around. A little loosy goosey; steer with your rear.
Better yet, don't think about it and just ride.
Today was one of those days. Everything was perfect.
It just flowed.
