perhaps its time we had more than one word for mud

it crossed my mind that whilst we have many words for the different types of rain, we have very few for mud. for instance what could you call that thin muddy layer that you get on hard paced trails that makes them more slippy than an oil spill on ice, or that thick gloopy stuff that lets your bike stand upright with no one on it.
so what do you think
what are brakes for again

    "Sludge" covers your second one nicely I think.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.
  • No sludge is a bit watery to hold a bike up. I think you mean "gloop".

    "Crud" - thin, watery mud with leaves, gravel and bits of twig in it :)

    I want a special word for nearly-frozen mud, and also for liquid mud with an ice crust, so that you ride halfway across it then it breaks, and then you have to try and ride through the mud and also be an icebreaker, while also knowing that if you put your feet down they'll be straight through into the mud, which will be at exactly 0.5 degrees.

    Oh, and also that weird green mud that appears sometimes at glentress, which is half mud and half pond slime.

    censored is the stuff that holds together in clods. They wreck your censored as you bump over them and leave tonnes of weight on your tyres as the censored is so sticky. Called censored because they look a lot like dog censored ....But mud coloured :lol:
