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. That was my compromise to be able to ride with the lady. 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.
