For years I mostly rode the trails on a cross bike. But in the last year or so, I've pretty much ridden the HD trails on mountain bike or fat bike only. Obviously the riding is totally different. Mainly the hydro brakes, front suspension, and fatter tires make the descents really fast and fun. Climbing: not so much.
On the cross bike, I have to be much more deliberate in my steering, leaning, and correcting. It's fun in a different way, but right now I'm enjoying mountain biking more than ever.
Maddie likes oysters. We're going on a bike trip next summer. We're aiming towards the oysters. Via Highway 20.
