Grip it and rip it.
I was finishing off a ride today, pretty tired from the week. A car passed me by with a huge downhill bike on the back. I thought to myself, sweet i'd love to be out ripping up some downhill. But then i thought, most of the descents around us are only about two minutes long, and with walking / shuttling up and down i'm guessing he only got about 15-20 minutes of downhill time in. Then i thought about the next 24 solo i'm doing, i'm not very good with numbers but it should be a good 4-6 hours of downhill i imagine , if you include all the small troughs and bomb-holes, which this course has i think.( I don't really mind climbing either). Nice thought...
