Today On A Bike

2014-07-05 12.46.20Yesterday I joined a couple of friends on a road trip to ride mountain bikes in St. Louis MO, specifically Greensfelder and Chubb trail systems. Both trails offered tech above what I typically ride in the form of rocky terrain. Greensfelder offered equal parts side of hill flow and rocky terrain. I really enjoyed it. The tech wasn’t too far outside of my comfort zone and allowed me to push my boundaries comfortably. My ride data from Greensfelder is here.

Chubb was a fun trail but it was more technical, demanding, and less flowly. I walked at least a three sections of downs and climb sections. The pictures of the trail don’t do the level of tech justice.
