Mountain Bike Monday - Lovely Ladies Ride

My friend, Elise, put together some ladies for an all ladies beginner ride and we met at Poco yesterday for a spin!

Here we are minus 1 lady!

We met up and started out riding the fireroad. We cut in on the blue trail!

After a quick whirl through there, everyone was doing so well we decided to tackle the green trail!

All was fine and good until I almost rode over a black snake!

It was cold enough that I thought we wouldn't have to worry, but I was wrong!

He was so stunned as was I that neither of us knew what to do! His head was right next to my foot as I slowly rode by. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him!

So, the only thing to do after taking pics was to encourage him away from the trail. I tried to do this with a stick.

He was only interested in going his way. Not mine!

Elise did a good job of snapping pics huh? At least he was easily visible in the brown leaves and rather slow because of the cold weather!

We continued on and finished up our ride with smiling faces!

We really had a wonderful time and enjoyed the company. I hope all the ladies will come back again.

If there's anyone that wants to join in, come on! The more the merrier! I make no promises, but we will have a great time and get some exercise!
