In May, we mentioned that we were going to try out some mountain biking. Here's that post.
Well, we did go mountain biking once. We had a nice time, but here's what we learned:
1- It isn't really possible to take photos while riding, so we only captured photos of ourselves standing next to our bikes. LAME.
2- The 6 mile trail we took had quite a few rocky areas that were near impossible for us beginners to actually maneuver. Those rocks made the non-rocky area to be unbelievably amazing and enjoyable.
3- Oh, the trail was also a little hilly. We LOVED the downhills (who doesn't?!). But the uphill was a different story. Seriously, as we were pushing our bikes up hill, we kept saying to ourselves, what is the point of having this machine? It isn't helping!
4- We will drag our bikes out to the trails again sometime, but we much prefer hiking for one simple reason, you actually get to enjoy the views while still moving forward. On a bike, we dare not look away from the trail and all those darn rocks.
Plans for June were to go hiking. Seems fitting based on the above statement...huh?!
