So my brother had his bachelor party here and got me to join him. I have owned a 'mountain bike', but it is a rigid Raleigh M40, so he got me on a friend's second bike.
Good bike, but holy cow, this was the first real mountain biking I have ever done. I have been on a bike forever and was a country boy growing up, but this trail was awesome. I watched plenty of videos ahead of time of people on this trail and maybe that helped to prepare me, but I did relatively well...as in no broken bones!
So since then, I have take up MTB at a sprinting pace and can't wait to get back here to better hit the tight switchbacks, steep dips, dirt skills section and all the other awesome obstacles here.
