Gotta start somewhere. My first mtb excursions were where you are riding. First few rides I only made it to 7th St and back, I walked up that blasted rocky hill many a time. Just keep at it, you WILL do better if you stick with it.DeanneChristine said:Oh .. we have that book you were mentioning just got so caught up in exploring this trail and trying to venture further we havent really thought about another area yet until someone earlier mentioned something else to experience.. ha- we bought that book when we went on a mad buying spree for getting ready to begin riding , we started doing the canal for a bit til we got used to riding - then we took to the T100 ..thinking we were all that until i started walking my bike up the first flipping hill LMAO! i almost quit.. whined like a baby.. but told myself if i gave up- id be such a loser to my own self.. and continued and i know to a lot of you going to CaveCreek from 7th Ave isnt that big of a deal. but . i cant tell you emotionally how it felt that even tho it took me 6-8 weeks to get there hey i did it! But yeah, weekend from next we are going to try that trail and i cant wait! But until then, its T100 daily! Thanks for sharing!
Kabooses rides are geared for the speed impaired(note her screen name). The rides I post are, too(note my screen name). And, we women are very patient and understanding about newbies, we like helping new riders. Honest. And, you can always bail early if you tire out. It is really fun to ride with others. Try it.DeanneChristine said:Until i get more sure of myself, until i have a little more personal self esteem im not riding in packs LOL id be the one that will be sooo far behind the rest of you, youd have to send a homing pigeon to see how im doing .
