This video is RIDICULOUSLY LONG, but I wanted to document what everyone was up to on this particular day of the ride. Tim and I were running up and down that mountain for the better part of the day. Too many stops. The most on any ride I've ever been on. Ever. I even tipped over at one point having stopped too many times leading up to one section. Nevertheless, there's always something to learn from these rides... isn't there?
Pick up bikes.
Hike back up.
Carnage everywhere. Total destruction... for what? A few rocks? Looks easy enough..............
Once you stopped, there was no traction on a heavy bike in this stuff. Good times for some. Total nightmare for others.
In all fairness, this terrain wasn't exactly on the menu when the trip was planned. It was supposed to be an 'easy' route with a challenging section or two. It took hours and hours to get everyone through about 18 miles!!!
Sorry for the long wait guys. I hope it was as enchanting as you remember it.
