Dirty Delta...

Went for a quick ride Sunday morning on the fixed gear road bike (note, this is a fixed gear road bike and not a fixie). Coming back, I hit the Cross Marin Trail and it's dirt section. I like riding the dirt section on my road bike. Riding dirt roads and paths on a road bike is super fun. I always seem to pick up the pace a bit on the dirt to keep the bike's tires floating over the rougher stuff and when you ride faster, pushing a bigger gear instead of sitting and spinning faster, you can keep you butt from being planted full-on on the saddle so you don't feel as beat up over the rougher stuff.

Back home, I noticed the unusual (and super cool looking) pattern of dirt that was deposited on my Campy Delta brake up front.

Another dust pattern lover! I confessed this love of dust patterns to a fellow rider the other day and he laughed at me....
