Mudders Day Ride
I took the day off for Mother’s Day this year, and was determined to get a mountain bike ride in on “my” day.
I had a lot planned for the day, and I didn’t have a lot of time–so I headed for an easy spin at Nonotuck Park in Easthampton. I started off near the pond on rooty single track. I took it slow, mostly because an injury would be wildly inconvenient for me (when is it ever convenient to get hurt?). I took my time and focused on technical skills. I was pleased that I handled most of the terrain without issue, and enjoyed taking it slow and mastering the trail.
The rest of the ride I kept easy: rooty, flat, twisty, with fun bridges over water features. The trails were mostly dry, but with all the rain we’ve had, I dunked a few times into mucky puddles. It was a quicky–about 45 minutes, but enough to put a grin on my face. Short & sweet 🙂
