Riding a mountain bike, in the snow, without fat tires up a mountain is not easy. That’s what I did on Sunday…for fun. Well, the second half was fun. I went with Jordan and our friends to Pittsfield State Forest, just over the border. I knew we would be riding up hill but I didn’t expect there to be so many switchbacks! The trail went up for what seemed like forever..but it was just over two miles.
Nothing like riding up a large hill (mountain?) to make you feel completely out of shape.
We got to the top and took the same trail back down. It was a lot more fun than I thought–usually I freak out on downhill portions, but I decided to just stay on my bike and see what happened. I only crashed twice.
It really wasn’t so bad!
