First Time Mountain Bikers

On Tuesday Katie and I went out to Rockville park in Fairfield with a two of our friends that wanted to try mountain biking. It was a different experience for me.

I tried my hardest to give them a well rounded taste of what the sport consists of without making it seem daunting. I think they got a good cross section of what the different types of riding the sport consists of. We did a little climbing, a little flowing smoothe single track, some decents and some technical sections. It was definitely eye opening for me when I was looking at the trails we were on more critically for a new rider. There are so many obstacles that don’t even register in my memory becasue to me it’s second nature. I just remember that “one” difficult spot or that trail was really fast. However when riding with them I was thinking more critically of the trail for thier experience level and several times I felt like I made the wrong decision taking them that way. Either way when it was all said and done they had a good time. Plus we went for beer and pizza afterwards which makes everything better. If you want a little chuckle check out the max speed. Apparently there was a hiccup in the matrix. None-the-less here is the ride info:
