I once fell upside down in to the Myahatchee Creek while riding the North Port Trails. It was my third ride with clippless pedals.

Johnathon, you look rugged with the green foam on you!

What about the environment?  Did you stat on the trail?  Remember the trail is bigger than you.

My buddy fell in on North Creek today.  I was too far ahead to see it.  He looked a lot like you Jonathan.  Had the green oooze all over him.  He's not a SWAMPer yet, but at least he got his initiation out of the way.
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

Sorry FACTORe I was a little fast on the trigger.  After reading the posts I can see how swamping happens.
Getting a road bike just makes you more of a cyclist.  We are all in it together.
