First Mountain Bike Ride of the Season
First mountain bike ride of the season on Saturday. We rode the Rockville Bench Trail and it was incredible—beautiful and fun. The trails down here are amazing and the scenery is world class. We rode the big loop, taking a couple of hours, but I felt pretty good overall (well except my bum). There are some pretty technical parts on the trail and even with my new lovely, lovely, fun, fun bike, I bumped my bum a bit.
I did feel like I have improved my leg strength. When I had to pound up something steep, I was surprised at what I could do. Just another plug for the high-intensity, strength workouts.
I’ve been trying some new recipes that are pretty good. I’ll put those up next.
