I climbed a long way today on loose rocky singletrack. I had no power in the legs, and there was no mojo either. To top it off, I hadn’t really planned for a huge ride, but that is what it was shaping up to be. So I decided to head home. I came to a trail junction, and feeling confident where the intersecting trail led, I pointed the bike down. And wow…did I go down. The elevation profile actually goes vertical. What took me nearly 2 hours to climb, I descended in about 15 minutes. The trail just went straight down the mountain. No switchbacks or traverses, just down.
My gloves have Ergon green embedded into them I was holding on so tight.
