SNAKE


First rattlesnake induced ejection of the year...

Word to the wise - when you spot a rattler on the trail while going full gas downhill on overgrown singletrack, try to ignore your instantaneous reflex to grab too much brake causing a you to go over the bars and therefore landing with one hand on either side of the snake and your face a foot away....Not the best reaction.

Yikes! I saw a snake across the trail at the Growler. I was going downhill so screamed and pedaled as fast as I could over it. I hate snakes.
