|I'm feeling like less of a Jerk with every ride on the new mountain bike.|
Today I spent 90 minutes at the park, covering most of the trails at least once and some of them several times. And I finally found a little loop that I really like. It’s not long and it’s neither the easiest nor the hardest section in terms of technical difficulty. But it flows. It makes sense to me. I can do it again and again, working hard all the while without huge peaks or valleys in the effort. It’s the loop highlighted in red in the map below.
Maybe that’s the only sensible way for me to approach these trails: shooting for mastery of one or two segments at a time, rather than trying to get my head around the whole thing.
