I don't know how I missed these pics from yesterday's mud ride.
Betsy has some natural skilz in mud-bogging. She's happy to commit, which is a requirement to power through mud and to bounce over various dead fall, which she did, giggling and whooping the whole way.
She's rocking a Torker Graduate, which is a pretty solid value at around $550: nice geometry, internal-gear hub, front drum brake. If it came with 26" wheels in her size, the bike would be a classic, but of course, it's got 700's wedged in there, so it's merely interesting.
The mud was a bit silly. It's going up past the rear derailleur here. A lot of horse activity. And of course, our tromping through didn't improve things much.
