Conditions Steep

I got out for a ride at the dump today. What a blast. I was a little concerned that my lack of fitness would cause some issues, but I actually felt pretty great for most of the ride. The conditions were ideal too. Dry, but not dusty, and lots of traction to go around. We ended up on a trail called Grinder and traction is key on that trail since it has lots of steep rock faces. I had a couple small bails on the day, but nothing serious.

This ride reminded me of way back when, when I used to ride a lot. It was a technical ride, not too much stopping for breaks, and lots of good riding. I love rides like that.

I was pretty pooped by the end of the ride, so I stopped at the bagel place for some food and coffee before heading home.
