    I finally made it!

    Went for a ride in the north foothills today and finally conquered my nemesis. I know many have made this obstacle but it has been taking my soul for the past month. Feels good

    Good job! I know that spot well. More times than not it gets me. Usually just one more crank would get me over the top.But that last crank is tough.

    Thanks!

    That section is the worst, i must have tried it a dozen times before i made it. Just below it is another that has been kicking my @ss. 230 is a tough trail for me as my legs just arent there yet and all the obstacles/rock gardens are uphill.

    now you have to tackle the next hill. Don't go to the left, go up the right hand rocky side.

    Thanks again.

    Gotta admit I see pics of some cool trails out here and I'm getting a little tired of riding the north foothills. Post up or shoot me a PM the next time you head out to the south foothils or something. I'll try my best not to slow you down too much

    Light rain made the NFH super tacky today. So nice to not be dusty for once.
