the area we cleaned

99 mile Fairfax country epic mountain bike loop

did this ride on Friday may 18th... it was just Jeff and i ... beautiful day to be outside... about 70 degrees and sunny... we started off early (7:30 am) and we didn't finish are ride till about 8:45 pm ... the last 10-15 min it was very dark and hard to see... the ride took so long because i was having a bunch of mechanicals...3 flats ...broken spoke...broken break leaver...rear break spring and pads were worn and bent so bad that i had to move the pads/ spring form the front break with the broken break lever to the rear break... it took about 4-5 hours of messing around to fix these problems... not having a front break it was hard for me to control my speed into corners.... i got off line and rode into the bushes and into the tall grass... as a result i managed to pick up 8 ticks during the ride... all of theses issues were mine and i don't think Jeff had any issues with his bike or ticks... he was very patient to deal with me.
