Mountain Biking 101
WOW, Mountain Biking is TOUGH! Our mountain bike with the parents today was a blast! I am so glad they came up today and spent some time with us, we love them!
Mama and Me Before the Ride!
Right behind where we are staying there is a sky lift that you can take up the mountain and ride your bikes all through the dirt trails.
We had to sign a waver that stated that we wouldn’t sue if we fell off!
We all enjoyed the fun ride up, a little scared but it was fun.
The view was breath taking!
After about an hour I needed some fuel!!!
I enjoyed a BEAR NAKED granola bar, these things are sooooo good! There is some sugar in them but I needed it!
Hubby was a little hungry!
We first rode 16 killer miles and then we headed back up the top and had a late lunch.
There wasn’t a lot of choices, but by this time I needed some FOOD! There is something about bike riding that makes me SUPER HUNGRY!
I decided to go with the veggie burger dry and just not worry about it.
I also had some of my new Vega Bars. These aren’t too bad; 200 calories and not too small. I am not a huge fan of the texture, but it did hit the spot. I will have to give them a second chance, I think I was just starved so anything would have tasted good!
I drooled over Hubby’s bacon cheese burger!
We headed out for one more ride before we headed back. It was such a gorgeous ride. I love the way the leaves were changing colors and the weather was absolutely perfect! Today I didn’t even feel like I was in California, more like Tennessee!!
We did a total of 22 miles, and as I climbed the hills I kept yelling at myself, “LAST CHANCE WORKOUT, DONT GET OFF THE BIKE!!” The one thing that I love about Mountain Biking is the challenge that it gives me, because I would rather be running and carrying my bike up the hills instead of climbing them!!
Time to get ready for the evening, Hubby and I will probably have a late dinner and just chill for a while. WE ARE TIRED!!
Do you mountain bike? Would you like to?
