The old road that has been serving as an excellent trail so far drops into a narrow wash and disappears

I carry my bike, and walk my packed saddlebags, out of the Wilderness area over to the old road
I assemble the 10-ton bike and start riding slowly down the bumpy surface of the road. I haven't ridden my bike since three days ago and have forgotten how heavy it is. I drink the last few gulps of my water, which are already quite warm.
