Went to Jack Brooks which is just down the road from me. Quite a bit more technical than I'm ready for. Humidity sucked and the mosquitos were like gnats. But I rode. Did good on the intermeddaite rated trails. Rode one TTF trail called "the playground" (there's a you tube vid of this trail) and tried my hand on some of the features. Couldn't maintain my balance on one of the obstacles but the fall was minor. I finsihed my ride on another technical trail that was very much rollercoaster. I took a wrong angle on one downhill and couldn't make the turn, ended up slamming my collarbone into a tree. I was fortunate that I walked away with only a big bruise and major abrasion when I could've ended up with a broken collarbone.
I think I'll stay away from the big dips and climbs until I get better with the smaller ones. Also need to drop my seat an inch or more (one vid said an inch, my LBS said 3) to better handle the drops and climbs.
