    Did my 1st real off road today

    Rode the yellow and orange trails at Houston's Memorial Park. Had a good time. One minor wipeout that had me shaking the dust off and another minor crash into a tree. But other than that, it was a good ride considering I started slipping gears midway through the first trail. I just kept with it, even though it made hill climbing more difficult by causing me to lose momentum.

    Congrats! I remember the first time I went for a singletrack ride.... Soon as I got off the trail I had to call my girlfriend an babble to her like an idiot on how much friggin' fun I had. 'Course I was way younger and the crashes and scrapes were accepted as normal!

    I think mtb'ing is one of THE best exercises out there. Carlos a fun to, even better when you get better!
