It’s 12:40 and I’m hopping on my MTB for my lunch ride.  I shoot down the pavement and up the dirt embankment to the Dog Park trail network.  What do I see, some of my friends that know about popcorn popping on the apricot tree… yep, they’re a little younger, but we hang out on Sundays.  Weird thing is… I had no idea they were into mountain biking, and they had no idea I can even ride a bike.

Hey fellas, what’s going on out here?

Fixing the trails up.

Where are the bikes?

Gotta fix the trails first.  This is day 2.

You guys are awesome.

Will you hit the jumps with us?

Uhhh… well, ya see I’m on a hard tail otherwise…
