    ... and if we just ... ahhhhhhh the joys

    one quick turn of the cranks and you're lined up for the corned. You fly into the berm, high up the side, higher and faster than before. You pump the bike into the exit picking up more speed. You crank again for another corner and shift your weight in the bike keeping the speed up.

    You fly round another corner onto the rocks. You and the bike are in perfect harmony it glides over the rocks into another berm. Again you go higher and faster than ever before just keeping control. You exit with a boost of speed the last corner is fast approaching. You line up the pedals and hit it hard this time it feels way too fast. You move your weight around the bike and push into the corner and fly out on the end of the trail.

    Your arms and legs are shaking and your on sensory overload thinking "how did I not wipe out?!"

    Then the adrenaline and endorphines kick in and the big smile creeps across your face. You ride off smiling from ear to ear knowing that you'll be living all the corners over and over again when someone asks "how was your weekend?"

    You'll answer
    "I just went for a ride"
    then the same smile will creep across your face and you'll relive the whole trail.
    Then start counting the days until the next ride.
