A trail so nice , I rode it twice

I pulled double duty in Fort Saskatchewan today and rode the awesome trails twice and am now sitting in my chair still giddy about how great of a day it was . These are the kind of rides you sit and dream about in the middle of January when it`s -34 and dark out by 4 p.m .

Everything on the ride was awesome , I can use that word cause that`s exactly what it was ........Awesome ! I know that word gets used too much but I find it fits perfectly to describe today`s awesomely awesome ride . Everything flowed today just perfect , not once but twice . The bike worked perfect , and I had a rare moment of riding like a champ (not a chump) and cleaned every section four times . There was only one incident where my rear tire burped coming around a tight corner and had to stop to inflate ......Which I blame myself for cause I never checked the pressure before I left (maybe I`m still a chump) .

Now that it is all over I can only sit and daydream of how it felt out there today , aside from the great riding , there was mother nature in all it`s glory with tons of small critters to be seen and heard . The smell of the trees is something else that got me today . On some of the photo shoots when setting up the camera I couldn`t help but stop and take in where I was .

If you read this and don`t ride a bike , I am urging you to go out and get one and head out into the bush . As I stated before on here "this riding shit changes people". I`m not the only one who preaches this about mountain biking . Pretty much every real mountain biker will say the same thing.

this must be what Heaven looks like

It's March, Lets Ride Big Tires

Both parties involved in the ride today would probably have been better off at home on the couch watching Netflix but now that it is all ove...
