Trying to cram 10 pounds of work into a 5 pound bag. Among the the bigger not dead trees the beetles probably won't get to I saw the spinal column (pictures to follow) of a large beast. I would have stopped but I was busy suffering, cleaning Little French felt good; skills, gas and focus. Not really choosing to ride that way is a mistake. It's perfect and I made friends with an old descent from a long time ago. Beautiful rooty, wet, tight singletrack that made me smile, hovering on the mud, drifting across the roots, better? Never.
