May 16, 2017 at 3:20 pm #215811 Cyclosaur That’s horrendous. Burn the bike May 16, 2017 at 3:51 pm #215813 ZipHead Don’t burn it…send it to me (at your expense). I’ll de-spiderize it and return it to you. I have vast experience with this sort of thing. I’ll have it back to you by next winter. Or perhaps spring. Maybe.

May 16, 2017 at 7:47 pm #215818 rajflyboy Keep the spider on there maybe it will scare the Bears away May 16, 2017 at 8:59 pm #215827 John Fisch Always my dilemma when I lived in Virginia: ride early to beat the crowd, but if I was first out, I’d be “breaking trail” through web after web. Not horrible, but definitely annoying. May 16, 2017 at 9:42 pm #215832 R Treb I hate spider webs but I hate the taste of the actual spider in the web. As I ride through the web huffing for breath mouth open and in it goes. Ugh… Too many times. May 17, 2017 at 9:12 am #215862 Jeff Barber 1997 called and wants it’s stem back. It’s an old photo but I just came across it in iPhoto this week. 🙂 This was the most spideriffic trail I’ve ever ridden, and by the end I was carrying a stick in one hand and waving it up and down to clear the webs. Even that wasn’t enough! May 17, 2017 at 12:28 pm #215933 jmalefyt Man, this couldn’t have been more timely. I was “breaking trail” this morning. Most likely looked like I had some sort of nervous twitch…. May 17, 2017 at 4:56 pm #215956 Treating I can relate. I would rather battle the FL heat by going a little later in the morning than run into the webs and their residents. I will go early on group rides and more than happy to let someone else lead and clear the trail.

I’m 6’4″, I ride early…..unfortunate fact of life once it warms up.
