Sedate is good also, but sometimes a guy just has to let it rip.
You assume the level of the ride reflects pace or excitement. A level 1 ride can happen at a pace that is anything but sedate and have plenty of excitement. Sam will remember a ride I'd describe as a level 1 or 2 as far as skill level needed where he and Tankboy set a level 4/5 pace. And we had plenty of excitement on the ride. I'll post a ride to the Hells Canyon gathering next week that I'd describe as level 3 but will be pushed to a level 4 since I don't know what we'll find for conditions.

BTW Sam, L2R and Burt say Hi.
