Brushy loop counter clockwise,which brought us back to the first connector we passed on Pine Torch Loop. Confusing huh, we simplydid a big. tigure I out of both loops,which turned out to being a great ride and workoutfor many of us. You know you are having a good ride when you have an annoyingtwig in your front spokebut you are having too much fun to stop and pull it out. The weather was great though the trails were a little on the muddy side. No major wipeouts or bike repairs on the trails on this trip. Just good old hill climbing,river crossing, sand riding, field crossing,rock riding, switch back riding and dung missing riding (we shire the trailswith the horses)! llewsfetter to Change Hands
