I was in the woods for two rides this weekend, on Friday and Sunday, and both times I came back to discover deer ticks on me. The ride on Sunday resulted in a tick attaching itself to the back of my leg, where the leg spandex of my shorts ended. The tick had only just attached itself to me, so I was able to pull it off without any trouble. Five minutes later, another tick crawled up to my knee, only to meet its' fate. With the prevalence of Lyme disease, it's a good idea to check yourself (or have someone else do it!) for any tick infestation.
