    First Ride of The Season

    Well I went on my first ride of the season, I only started mountain biking last year so I am still very much a noob. Seems like I could do nothing right and could not use any technique I learned from the previous year. I know the more seat time I get the better things will get. Hopefully this spring I can improve so I can extend my rides and not wipe out as much. Of course it didn’t help that I went to a fairly technical trail with up hill rock gardens and lots of roots. I seem to be having a problem keeping momentum through the rock gardens and when climbing, Its so hard to regain momentum once its been lost! I am going to try a tamer trail tomorrow.

    I'm a firm believer in learning by doing . And have the bruises to prove it. I hit a few trails hard last week when I was off for spring break. Just take care to avoid pointy things when falling. Got a deep cut in the palm of my hand that still hasn't really healed a week later (which is why I went out and bought be some full finger gloves).

    Just stick with it and challenge yourself.

    Btw, I'm little more than a novice myself.

    Good Dirt!
