Where do you take a friend who hasn’t been on a bike for a long time?
I wanted to have a fun ride this morning, but didn’t want to do anything too hardcore because I like my friends, and don’t want to scare them off. After some poring over Google Maps (I do that a lot), I came up with a compromise that was mostly off-road, had a couple of good hills, and got us back home within two hours.
It had a few skin marks which Glen reckons might have been from being swept over the dam wall in recent flooding.
We found a few stray rocks and put them near the drop to make it easier to traverse.
I think Harrison was a bit skeptical at my handiwork. Although you can’t see it, he did finally manage to ride over it.
