Been lurking a while. First post.
Got up early and took my first ride this morning. It was not only my first time in the dirt but also first time riding the SS outside my neighborhood. I'm a relatively seasoned road bike rider so I thought this would be an easy transition. Boy was I wrong! Bike control was a lot more difficult on single track than I expected. Also grade seem flat for the first 3 miles visually but after I turned around I realized my error as I was huffing it all the way back. I really need to take some time and watch some skills videos.
Overall great time. I can't wait to get more pedal time! Hopefully with experience comes confidence in bike control. Currently have a small amount if anxiety about crashing and hitting my noggin on a boulder. I'm not sure how anyone rides with clip less pedals in the dirt either!
Have a great weekend everyone! Ride safe.
