It’s practically impossible not to have an amazing day while riding the Downieville trail system. However this day really stood out. I had a fantastic time riding with my son and a great group of guys. I finally got the chance to ride with MTBing Adventures and ultimately had what I would say was one of the best runs of my life down Third Divide. It was unbelievably fun. Hopefully my edit does this day justice because we really had a great time despite the crashes that some of us had, the lost skin, and bruised egos, it was a great day, with great people, and a bag full of grins.
I’m just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn’t bring myself to buy a road bike just so I could do long road rides that had more climbing than I could handle on the SS. That was my compromise. I’m originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
