More mapping. Riding to miscellaneous locations. I did at one stage start on the abundance of single tracks in the area but as soon as I did I got confused and tried to do a 150 degree turn around a tree and ended up crashing my bike. Great lead up to the rogaine, although I guess it's standard practice now to hurt myself just before one.
It was at this point (about 3 hours in) when I lost a heap of skin from my leg and hand that I realised I wasn't wearing gloves so went back and got them. Some guys in the car park commented on the 'old fashioned GPS' I was carrying so I went off and cried.
After losing it in the single track I went off and mapped the south west and north east instead. Then it got dark and I'd left the lights in the car so I rode back along Nettleton Road in the dark and not long later it rained so luckily I did forget lights or else I would have got wet.
One more trip I think to sort out the single track, although next time I think I'll just ride it all with scant regard for the map and sort it out on OCAD.
