I went mountainbiking today, although I would prefer to call it trail riding given our lack of mountains here in the 'Ville. After a little afternoon nap I jumped out and did a late-afternoon thing, taking in Seneca first and then Cherokee on the 29er. I will always contend that our local trails are better suited to 26" riding with their twisty turns, but I also made full use of the Lefty shock to power through some rocks and such. My only complaint is that KYMBA (I assume) put some massive logs across the trails at Seneca Golf Course; I can't imagine clearing those anytime soon.
I had more fun in Cherokee and I loosened up and dialed in the flow. There were some sections that were downright fun even as I was tiring. Overall I put in 1.45hr and returned home uninjured. For me that's a great mtbike ride.
