Mountain Bike School is in Session

Five femmes showed up for our tour of the Lewis and Clark trails on this warm Wednesday night.  Beth Ann, Christy (our tutor), Julie, Erin and myself. With all of the time Julie spends working at Sellwood, this was her very first MBS. The previous days dry weather gave us slightly better traction, but the forest floor was covered in a thick layer of leaves that made the trail and roots difficult to see. Rain started about the time we rolled out, but with temps in the 60’s nobody was cold.

We did have some mud surfing sections which led me to drop even more air out of my newly tubeless tires. Christy told me this ride would make Bear Springs Trap XC race (April 28-29th) seem easy. And with most good training rides in the dirt, I left a little blood on the trail too.

This ride takes place Wednesdays and leaves from Sellwood Cycle, rain or shine. Meet at the shop by 6:00 pm.  It is a great way to practice steep climbs and rooty descents.
