|officially the worst lone biker header shot ever, oh what a night|
What part of the ride I experienced was great. Jason lead and took us on a singletrack excursion which was great and made me rethink my usual ride routes. It did tragically end quickly, after the crash I kept going but shards of pain shot up my arm when I tried holding onto the bar on the technicals. Once on the Gnome trail I got off and ran around the big log crossing right after the climb I knew I was done. It only got better when I wanted a bike group shot which would have been fantastic on the nice camera where I realized there was no memory card. Hence the crappy iPhone pics. Not my night... I rode home forlorn and let them continue their awesome journey.
Hearing reports back that the guys finished with no injuries or fatalities was good to hear. Night riding on mountain bikes can be pretty bad ass when you really think about it.
Was looking forward to this one all day, too bad it was so shitty, here's to tomorrow...
