I've heard it said that the quality of a mountain bike ride can often be determined by the amount of dirt that is accumulated on one's legs. That being said, today must have been a very good ride.
My confidence in the cornering is not what it should be to be really fast. Also, I have this fear of crashing really bad and breaking things.
The group I rode with today is just crazy fast on single track, and I knew going into it where my place in the pack was. I rode single track harder and faster today than I ever have in the past, and gained some confidence and trail knowledge which will only help me in the future. Thanks guys! I had a blast!
