THE TRAIL SPLITS AND WE ALWAYS GO TO THE RIGHT. Been doing if for decades. I've stopped, looked to the left...
... and just kept going to the right.
Fittingly, the name of the trail is Viejo Tie -> I am old, and I prayed it would tie back into where we wanted to end up.
It wasn't much of a prayer, I was prettydamnsure this was the famed trail nobody ever rides because if you have a mishap nobody will ever find you. Plus, there are bonus points if you can make it without dabbing...
... mission not accomplished.
Yet, still accomplished.
The whole point of today's ride was to get on some terrain that would beat the crud out of us...
... get the blood flowing inside and outside our mortalness.
In that we were most successful.
Plenty of scrapes, dandy dabs, and a wholelotta Damnman we should be able to ride this!
When we got back on familiar, easier terrain the results where immediate. We cleared a number of features we might normally walk, and Chris PeeYar'd the long and ridiculously fun final 30 minute downhill.
This is not the first time I've confirmed R. Frost's claim...
... nor will it be the last.
The reason for today's adventure is the Cactus Cup looming 3 weeks out. I can see it on my great, big, giant, amazing RaceDay Calendar™. March 11-14 is circled in red.
The terrain is very similar to the racecourse out in Arizona. Only harder, and ideally will make us fasterbetterstronger.
