Dodging puddles

Ruts are just evil things. If my tire or pedal hits the side wall.... I tend to crash. But although challenging, rutted trails are a lot of fun..... when wet

Headed to a gnarly rutted motorcycle trail, with plenty of ruts & potholes. And following heavy rain all had turned to large mud puddles.

Riding around the ruts is probably the safest option. On the other hand, Straight down the middle with conviction and bit of speed is much more fun.
