      Enough said.

      One thing I do not miss about riding in Georgia!

      That’s horrendous.  Burn the bike

    • #215813

      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.

      1997 called and wants it’s stem back. Spiders?!? No big deal. Just flick them off and ride on.

        Keep the spider on there


        maybe it will scare the Bears away

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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….

      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.

      In Florida, the OMBA mascot (jersey logo) is a Golden Orb spider. One Santos trail section is known as Spider Kingdom. I’m 6’4″, I ride early…..unfortunate fact of life once it warms up.
