First time riding San Lee. It was a lot bumpier than I expected. I came from Florida riding the Alafia trail which is smooth as butter compared to San Lee. LOTS of rocks and roots. Riding a 29er hardtail and it was bumpy. I went to the wrong trailhead at the beginning, I couldnt figure out where to start. Once I got going it was good. There are some really fun parts of the trail, just super bumpy. I'm used to much smoother trails, but I could get used to this, especially since I found gravity park. I have been looking for something like that for a while now. Lots of cool downhill there. I took ricochet down, which was a blast. Tried crossing the creek at the bottom, which I thought I was well equipped to do, but I was wrong. Had to bail and my rear derailleur got bent, thought I fixed it and it got caught in the spokes, snapped it right off. Time for an upgrade. I will be going back to try it again. Beautiful park and the trail builders have put lots of time into this place. I would like to know when they work on it to go help and learn more about the trail. Get out there and enjoy the ride. I want to go back tomorrow, soon.
