You haul your mountain bikes up the ski lifts and attempt to ride down on the trails!!! Right?
Sometimes even I think I have problems. However, I knew within hours the muscle pain would be so intense I wouldn't be able to try mountain biking, so I ate lunch and headed back out.
|Silly little Kansas girl, what are you doing?|
|Don't get too attached to those shorts!|
So we got up to the top, put on our helmets and followed the signs, how hard could it be, right?
After the first switchback, I was scared! I have pad breaks and I guess disc brakes are really what you need up there. I got real friendly with pumping my brakes as to not lock them and skid out of control.
|It didn't seem so hard to Kenton...yet|
I watched one rider wipe out, jump up, dust off, and take off again. That didn't help me get more comfortable.
|Not enough O2 to grow up there|
We switched trails and made it down with no more incidences. I was happy to not have increased the scrapes on my legs and that we didn't get seriously hurt.
|Shredded through 2 layers, pic doesn't do justice!|
|I don't know what the big deal was...*I* didn't get hurt :)|
