I was wondering, as I pedalled through the forrest last week, what “initiation” I needed to do to be a “mountain biker”.
I figured that having a decent stack would be a good start.
So I sorted that out today. Coming down a slope I was breaking and managed to throw myself over the front.
Getting up proved awkward as my backpack had managed to get tangled into the mess as well. I lay in the dirt and had to unclip the bag before getting out from under the bike.
Apart from that it was a good ride today (and actually it wasn’t that bad even with the stack) Rode about 16km in about 90mins. Saw a few others riding too. I kept up with them for about a metre, lol.
