Ride Celebration – Falls Creek Hike/Bike

I rode in the area of the Falls Creek Trail (and Ice Caves)

It was a couple of weeks ago, but I was stiff the day after it.

The thing I noticed most was that I totally ran out of water and food. Still learning about Mountain Biking and the calorie count.

This affected me most on the downhill as my legs turned to rubber and I was forced to really dial back my speed as I started to make numerous mistakes. Oh well it was so fun to be out with @petebikes and I learned a lot.

Gear Note: I immediately went out and purchased a Katadyn BeFree Collapsible Water Filter Bottle from REI

Under the giggles category was I had the bike pressure set to 26 and 30 and that is simply too high and I was bouncing off stuff. Thinking 22/24 for next time.

Until then, and later 🙂
