And ,amazingly, nobody got hurt! Although there was a lively discussion about what constitutes a "slight pitch", and what defines a hill. On the ride were myself, fellow Waffler Biker Bill, and his fiancee, Kory. A small but lively group.
All in all, it was a good ride. We had some really great weather, and mountain biking is one of the best ways I know to see some breathtaking fall foliage. If you have never done it, I highly recommend it. The trails take you to places that people don't generally set to, and the fallen leaves put the scent of autumn in the air.
It's really about the simple things in life. Beautiful scenery, a sturdy bicycle, and friends to enjoy it all with.
