DEET is my friend.

We went back to the Tick Woods Lynn Woods for an afternoon of mountain biking... and I was pleasantly surprised with the terrain.  The trails were a little overgrown (it's early in the season) but there were definitely some challenging and technical sections.  We had a great time and, after a thorough inspection, we came home tick-free (unlike last time)!  But, let me just say, the mosquitoes are NO JOKE out there.  Even though I had bug spray on, those little eff-ers STILL circled my head... and I have no idea what that caterpillar web-like cocoon thing is, BTW... I was intrigued, but kept my distance.  Have you seen one of those things before?  If so, WHAT THE EFF IS IT?? 

Are you a magnet for mosquitoes?  I totally am, which is good for anyone with me as they won't need to wear repellant while I'm around! 

Non-Garmin stats: 3-ish hours of mtn biking in the beautiful Lynn Woods (we may or may not have been lost for about 30 minutes, though).

  1. What an awesome bike ride. I would be nervous about riding my bike on trails (not the best at cycling) Mosquitoes don't bother me too much but it just depends on how thick they are.

    I have never seen a cocoon like that before! I think I would have kept my distance as well.
