Taking Advantage Of The Last Few Days Of Fall

Taking Advantage Of The Last Days Of Fall

A great ride through some of my favorite trails on a beautiful fall day

After a very long (for me anyways) lay off from riding, due to a new job, I finally got my bike out for a ride. With winter just around the corner any day I can get my bike out is a pretty great day. This ride was an especially good one too.

The Post Crash First Ride Out

Post Crash First Ride Out

Post crash first ride out fish creek park mountain bikeAfter nursing my rib injury for just over a week I felt it was time to get back on my bike. It didn’t hurt too much to breathe, and jumping around wasn’t too bad so I figured a ride at my local trails would be good to knock the cob webs off.

It had rained a bit the night before, but it was a beautiful sunny afternoon. I did my pre-ride check and put the bike on the car. I was off to my first post injury ride and was a little nervous.

Fish Creek Park & Crashes!

Fish Creek trail daySo today was a big ride. I decided to start my ride from Lakeview at around 2 in the afternoon, the hottest part of the day. I would ride south through Glenmore Park and the Weaselhead down to the west end of Fish Creek Park.

The ride to Fish Creek took a little longer than I thought it would, mostly because I decided to ride on a grown over vehicle trail for most of the way, slowing my speed and tiring me out a bit.
