El Chingon, D Wang and I went for a ride on the Barrel and Bear Poppy Trails today. The video doesn't do the steepness of the trail justice. There are a few pretty good sphincter clenchers on this stretch.
I cleaned the entire Barrel Trail for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I'd always ridden by myself and ended up walking the steeper rollers. The first ride on my Pack (also alone) I felt confident enough I just went for it and manged to ride all of the main trail. Today it didn't seem too bad. The more upright position I have for my 6 Pack really helps on the super steep stuff.
I was again impressed at the skills of my two companions. D Wang is a very smooth and stylish jumper and El Chingon's perfect pedalstroke could grace a pro roadie.
