Weight Part 2

I took my bike to a&b and weighed it this weekend; it turned out my bathroom scale was pretty accurate. The official weight is 26.75 pounds. I then took my flyweight beast to little sac and proceeded to cover it with mud. I also took my dogs (heavyweight beasts) with me and had a great time; they absolutely love going with me on my rides and sometimes I enjoy it too. Dingo (the weimaraner) always leads and kupfer always follows. Dingo even kicked some mud in my face this time. That was nice. Anyway, after we finished our 2 hour ride I did my normal de-tick routine before putting them in the car. They were covered in ticks. I must have removed at least 30 from each of them before we left, then after the group shower at home I took probably another 30 off them; I’ve never seen so many ticks. I sprayed myself and the dogs with off before the ride and I only had 1 on my leg. I think the boys will be limited to greenways trails until I figure some way to keep the ticks off. That just took too much time…..
