  • You know you've had a tough Muni ride when...

    You take the uni out of the car when you get home and find pondweed around the spokes and stuck to the rim.

    Found some new tracks today, including about a mile of streambed - with the stream still in residence.

        ...your hip is still well-bruised two weeks after somehow landing sideways on your frame.

          Your legs are "rubberized" and start to cramp up with every revolution! Of course, this was only after 4 solid hours of technical riding, uphill and dh!

                    Ouch. That's one of the daft things about this sport: a fairly typical UPD, just like thousands of others, but a few inches the wrong way and instead of walking away your'e badly injured. So random.

                    Some good riding inthe video. That sort of thing always reminds me of my limitations.

                      When you get back to the car and have to remove your outer wear and turn it inside out to protect the car from the (stinking pond) mud. (UPD where I went right over the handrail of a footbridge.)

                        Yay! I'd have paid to watch that.

                          When everything that night for dinner tastes like trail dust, sweat and blood.

                          When your baggy shorts stand up by themselves.

                          Paper will spontaneously combust when held anywhere near your crotch.

                          When the unicycle seat has to be surgically removed from your butt.

                          When the chamois butter has now become a hard slice of chamois cheese.

                          When you buy special toothpaste that will cut through the bug-tar better.

                          When you get stuck in the mud at the bottom your shower that formed when you just washed your hair.

                          When your leg cramps get their own cramps.

                          When you sleep in the driveway because you can't climb the five steps to your house.

                            When you seriously consider letting your 12 year old son (and riding partner) drive the car home from the trail-head.

                              you cut up your left leg and arm and side when you fall down a hill you bailed on and roll into a large group of thornbushles, you can no longer identify your pedals, tire and hub through all the mud, your hair is stuck flat to your head from sweat along with your shirt (and its 7 degress celcius out :P) there is no longer any clearence between your tire and crown due to mud, both of your thighs are red and chafed (sorry for spelling).
