Mountain Bike Monday - Green Green Everywhere!
Wow!!! We hadn't been out to Poco in weeks, and we were really surprised at the green leaves everywhere!
It was so beautiful on Saturday! We decided to get an early start and hit the trails while the weather was still nice. We met MBM at the park and hit the Lakeview Trails. Dynamo was in charge of taking pics!
He is more balanced and can take pics on the fly.
The only thing is that he got lots of pics of my backside, which is not my favorite angle, as you can imagine!
The trails sure have gotten a workout since we last rode on them. We had to reassess our normal lines through obstacles.
The lake was beautiful with the sun shining down on the water.
It just glistened in the sun!
We stopped and snapped our pic together! Our usual ride photo pose!
I keep cutting Dynamo's head off! I try not to!
I really didn't think too much about snakes. I know...shocker...but, it was just so beautiful that I was focused on chatting and enjoying the scenery!
We rolled through the trails at a pretty good clip.
I was feeling really good! The best ever, in fact. It was amazing! I wish every ride could be that great! I didn't think much about the pain. I attacked the hills properly. I felt good! I was really proud of myself. No complaining! It was a peaceful ride for everyone!
We even saw a lady slipper right off the trail on Lakeview 3! MBM told us he saw it the last time he rode, so we were looking for it. To our surprise it was still there.
Then, right next to it were two more beautiful slippers! Just like the perfect couple together!
We finished up our ride in record time for me.
It's kinda like golf. You always hit that great shot on the last hole, so it makes you wanna come back for more!
We're looking forward to another ride this coming weekend. We're in training for the Cap to Cap ride on May 12! Last year we did the 50! We're planning on doing it again!
It's a great time. A fun race with good fellowship for a great cause!
I'd also like to note that it's camping season again! The park was starting to fill up with campers and trail explorers! I mean serious campers!
And, did you know that the volunteers at the park cut down the fallen trees and sell the firewood to campers?
With camping season back it means we'll be soon smelling yummy breakfast being cooked over a campfire!! Oh, I love that smell after we finish up a long ride!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Be sure to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather!
Sorry all the pics have been of me. Dynamo is so fast with the camera. I had no idea he took all these great pics! I think he will be on camera duty from now on!
Have a great week!
