I truly wasn't sure if I was going to even finish editing this video. The initial reason for going out was purely to get Clint's wife out on the trail. Her first experience mountain biking was several years prior and she broke one of her fingers on the ride. As you would suspect that injury really kept her from getting on a mountain bike again. This was the first ride to try and trick her into being a mountain biker. We went out to Granite Bay which is about as mellow as it gets in this area. I used to bring the kids out to ride here when I was first getting them into riding. Since the Bronson is in shop I decided to take out the CX bike. I hadn't been on it for several months and literally had to wipe the dust layer off of it.
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.
