I’m hooked. I went to the BMC Demo Day put on by the fine folks at Top Gear Bicycle Shop agt North Park today. Instead of riding the trails, which I normally do at North Park, I wanted to try something different – a road ride. I’d only been on a road ride once before, many years ago. And even then it was on my mountain bike.
The fact is, I’ve always considered myself a mountain biker, not a roadie. I love single track, zipping between trees and over rocks and roots. Maybe it’s the adrenaline rush, or maybe it’s the escape into nature, but I’ve never had the urge to take to the road. I guess I thought compared to mountain biking, it would be kinda boring.
I was wrong.
I won’t go into the reasons why I’ve become so obsessed with road riding – I’ll just leave you with a few shots I grabbed after the ride.
