For all the bike riding i have done over the years, I have never officially down hill mountain biked. There is a great track only about 10 kms from my house, so I am going to hook myself up with a loaner mounter bike and hit the trails.
Ok so I went Mountain Biking today. I used a 25 year old bike that had commuter tyres and very poor brakes, I fell off once and drew blood, but i loved it!
I am hooked. I cant wait to get a decent bike and really get stuck into it. I had a complete blast. It brought back memories of when I used to ride my BMX bike as a teenager.
