Even after taking what feels like a lifetime off the bike (not to mention mountain biking) I can still ride. This was a blast! Thanks to Greg Kauper for the invitation.
The pace was mellow, I did not fall down while riding in Duthie Hill and my fitness was totally adequate. My skills? Let's just say they got better the more I rode. :)
And it was beautiful out. These giant, red, yellow and orange leaves were everywhere. Did I mention that the trail conditions were epically good? All we had to worry about were some wet wood bridges. In fact, the fog was making the paved roads around here pretty wet while we were nice and dry all day.
The bike I'm on is heavy, the gears are not quite low enough and it has 26" wheels. NONE OF THAT MATTERED. I had fun.
