You can either ride the dirt trails around Salem Lake or risk a $25 fine to ride the single track within the woods. The single track is officially closed to bikes, but the fine scares of few. Riding around the lake is good warm-up. On the south side of the lake, plenty of single track veer to the side of the dirt trails. Amidst the single track there is a huge gully with a 10-15 ft drop-off. It took me a while to build up the courage to take the plunge. My buds warned me not squeeze the front brakes or I'd be doing head over heel sommersalts all the way down. I inched my way to the edge, swallowed that lump in my throat, took a deep breath, closed my eyes and told myself it was something I just had to do. Then, aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh..... wooooooooohooooooo! I did it. My boyfriend, Jeff, always tells me to try at least one new thing each time I ride. The only thing I have to add to that is to try that new thing as many times as you can before the adrenaline rush is over!
