Exclamation Heads up, riders.

Yesterday morning on the first downhill section after the last log on Labyrinth, after a blind corner, I hit a rather suspicious vine that was across the trail, at face level, with no leaves on it where it crossed. Also, it apparently grew overnight, because I crossed that section twice on Saturday afternoon. It is my belief that someone deliberately strung it across. I wont post the pic here, but you can see it on my Facebook page. It pulled right across the bridge of my nose cutting it nicely, and also got my left cheek. No safety glasses and I might have damaged my eye. Thankfully, all appears to be okay. I'll live. I cut and disposed of the offending vine. There were no other issues, although I was spooked at anything from the side for the remainder of my ride. Just be careful.

That did cross my mind. Probably just some punk kids, though.
