Daily Photo for Mon. March 25, 2013
It's not the most flattering portrait or the best quality image, but I had to put it on. Me on my first mountain bike trail yesterday. Taken by my other half on his iphone as I had just descended what I thought was a huge hill and was coming up the other side at what must have been 50 mph! We've been riding our new/used bikes on flat farm roads and bike lanes of streets and thought we were ready to take the next step. I did a little online research and found the Tortolita Preserve – Dove Mountain trail, 9.9 miles of TORTURE! We were on the outskirts of The Gallery Golf Club, I wonder if the players could hear me blurting obscenities around every bend and near miss of cactus, rocks and sand! To make it even worse it was labeled a beginner/intermediate trail!!
