Default Well I lived

Friday with it being 79* out I loaded up the new mountain bike and went to the park.
Now it's been 20 years since I road a bike and never really road on dirt trails on a bike before.
Now I had a few motorcycles and spent a lot of time riding off road on them but that's not the same as riding a bicycle.

So 1 tree tried to take me out and I had to open hand slap it.
Got to the top of one hill and decide that going down and back up the other side was out of the question
I had to take a brake (read about to pass out) and a guy rides up and ask me if I needed a water.
I really did, remember, about to pass out.
I got up Saturday and got a small backpack to carie a few with me.
Need water a lot when riding a bike.
Probably did 6 miles and Saturday I had to take a pain pill so I could move.

So today I went for a ride and did not go as far, had water with me and stopped a few more times.
But I went down and back up that one hill and even went over a big tree they have setup.


Now I have to wait till Friday so I can go again.

I might but they are not that cheap and I have a few other things I need right now.
I guess I could take a pic of the bruise on my shoulder I have from Friday.

Might be a loooong time before I buy that one, it did make nice videos

Yeah I think that I would pass on that too until I won the lottery.
