I went on my first mountain bike ride in a long time on Saturday. Absolutely nothing epic about it. Not very long. Not very fast. Not very technical. In short, it was exactly what I needed to dust off the cobwebs from my mind. I ain't 20 anymore. Heck, I ain't even 40 anymore. I don't think I would have been up for anything epic on my trusty, rigid old bike. None the less, it was a great time and I could really feel it in my upper body in a way that I don't when riding on the road.
I plan to add a Soma Clarence bar as soon as it arrives in the mail. Woot!
