Summer is well and truly gone, in fact its almost half way through autumn. Trees that seemed just weeks ago to be in full bloom are now almost barren.

Not to bad a bunch tonight (11 riders?), for a trip in towards town on the trails. Recent rains have left a few puddles, some of those puddles smell like poo, but in general it was hardpack as far as the eye could see.

The lip that I crashed on last week.

As we head into mid Autumn the days are starting to get a lot shorter, and lights are becoming a necessity. Still, I'm a stubborn arsehole who made a brash statement months ago about "not using lights until daylight savings ends" and I feell obliged to stick to those words.

The logical thing to allow me to get a decent length ride in while the sun still shone was to do extras before the ride, then bail once the bunch got to the city. I felt kinda guilty bailing on everyone halfway through the ride, even more so after hearing the bunch split later on.

I was happy because I was moving further away from the poo puddle. :)
