Firstly, let me say I love this site. It has honestly helped me to get started properly in this mountain biking adventure and because of that, I love it IMMENSELY.
Been riding for 3 weeks now with the intentions of getting healthier and I just love it so much.
Well, after tackling the easy trails, a buddy of mine and I decided to go hit some intermediate trails this morning. We were out there for 3 hours and we had a blast!
On the second trail I decided to be the spider clearer (he hates spiders :P) and was really just feeling it and having a blast when my left shoulder clipped a tree and I over compensated and drove right into another tree on the other side of the trail. It was awesome!!! Laughed my butt off and told my buddy "well - it's official. I am a real mountain biker now. WOOhooo!"
Later on in the day we were trying to find some more trails and were riding a doublewide in the not-really-used part of the preserve and ventured into some tall grass. At the same moment that I decided to stand up and power through it (not to mention my butt hurt), my front tire decided it needed to find a nice little hole. Needless to say conditions were perfect for me to go over the bars with the bike landing on me. Laughed my ass off again.
God, it was an awesome day!! I love this stuff.
I told my wife that I smacked two trees and flipped over the bars and how much fun I had. SHe thinks I am crazy. I am sure you all understand though.
