The long-awaited moment for mountain biking has finally come. Nick’s new Giant bike arrived last Wednesday and we went riding at Cheeseboro Canyon right after we picked up his bike, and then again on Friday. We had a blast, a great workout, and I did pretty good with the technical stuff after not riding for several years.
We managed to get a few shots to share when one of us decided to take a water break; otherwise it would be difficult to take pictures while riding. My hands were gripping the handle bars hard as I sped down a few steep hills, maneuvering over jagged rocks while keeping control to avoid a fall.
Being so close, one and three-quarter miles away from Cheeseboro, we will return often to ride. It’s convenient on the weekdays and is great practice for other trails we plan to ride in the near future.
