A collection of trail photos. Love the agave!

A “hotspot” , we haven’t been there in many years.… Rick is pointing to the White Line, a MTB trail. I couldn’t believe it, but sure enough.… and I have trouble just watching the video, see below. It’s a super sketchy MTB trail, we only watched the trail from a distance, tagging @b.stark and @swmalone

Yeah I've seen enough pictures and videos of the White Line to know I'm never riding it!! My sense of self preservation isn't super strong, but it's enough to keep me off that.

Even before breaking my back on a mountain bike I would have never ridden that thing. I doubt I would have even in my 20s when I thought I was invincible. Now in my 40s if I sleep wrong it takes a week to recover. I do have a goal to try to ride road and mountain bikes a bit more this year to try to get over that fear of injury, and also shed some of the weight I have put on since the injury.

That new mayhem commercial with him riding a stationary bike and going through a glass door had me double checking how my bike is set up on the trainer. I really don't want to be that person that injures myself riding my bike indoors on a trainer.

As always @Titans thanks for the potential PTSD triggering post. :D:D

I once went skidding down Independence Pass on my side at around 30 mph and almost under a moving car that managed to stop at the last minute. My bike was mangled (the tire had popped off the rim), but I came out of it with only a broken thumb, lots of road rash, and some damaged nerves on my hip. It's funny how a brush with one's mortality can slow you down, in a good way. I'll never get over looking up at that car's bumper mere inches from my head. That was the beginning of a transition to 100% hiking/walking and slowing down and enjoying smelling the roses. I sometimes miss my bike, but not enough to get another one.
