Ok...so, there I was joffling along the riverbank (which was getting very overgrown) with water from the long grass squelching in my trainers. I was just thinking the squelching wasn’t as bad as I imagined, when whoomph! I was lying face down like a cross between a hippo and a pancake. I lay a few moments thinking it wasn’t nearly as bad as last time when I was knocked off my bike and I did a flying bellyflop on to the tarmac. I continued somewhat muddier than I had planned.
My question is, do you think trail shoes would help prevent a repeat performance?
