On our Friday off, Dennis and I take our mountain bikes over to Elk Meadow to thrash down some trails. I had not been to EM since I went trail running there a few years ago. I remember running up to the top of Bergen Peak, so I was hoping we weren’t going to be doing that on the bikes. It was steep and a bit rocky, so it stuck out in my mind as being pretty advanced.

We got there mid afternoon and unloaded the bikes. I was excited to hit the trails. Since it was a Friday, we didn’t have to worry about crowds.

Dennis Concentrating on the Ride
Dennis with Lazer Lock on the Trail. There were a few roots and rocks, some sharp turns and banks. It was definitely not totally beginner!
