I Think I Can, I Think I Can...

An after work ride finally took place after what seemed like years and it was everything I could imagine it would be.

The ride started in Cameron Heights,situated strategically close to work and rode into Terwillegar where the new singletrack was ridden amidst a vast array of singletrack induced trail orgasms. The hardtail flowed like a dream and I thought at one moment I could just die right there. At that moment I got off my bike and begged Terwillegar for it's forgiveness.We used to be a hot couple in the early years of riding and I want her back.

The highlights and lowlights of the ride was seeing a very nervous and scared young girl on the new Terwillegar singletrack dragged on by her boyfriend.She looked terrified! I passed by and immediately my brain grew ten times bigger. "That young girl is scared and I'm riding this with no issues! Am I really this awesome?" Instantly the lonebiker ego went up about ten thousand points. I couldn't wait to get home to tell my wife.

The ego was then shattered as I was passed like I was literally standing still. Yes I know I am slow but could not believe the speed of this guy. It was like he was Ben Johnson hopped up on a fresh load of steroids with a few hits of speed to top it off. Later on, low and behold I saw the same guy in the parking lot as I was looping around and what did I see?

An E bike.

I'll just say nothing more. Ego restored. I still ride better than scared girls their first time on a mountain bike on a technical trail!

Get ready to see lots of this E bike action in the trails soon kids. Riding your ass, wanting to pass. KOM's being shattered on Strava...

I really hope that shit doesn't start happening. I got my first taste of it tonight.

In the end I didn't care about getting passed by a bike with a motor. The ride was invigorating.

Bikes. Trails. Terwillegar. I love you.
