First Mtn. bike ride of the year

Roger, Richard and myself went for a ride up to Burnaby mountain this morning. It was a great day for riding, it was sunny and mildly warm. All in all it went very well. I was happy with my general fitness (which can barely be called “fit”), and I rode most of the way, getting off the bike only a few times. I did notice that riding tricky stuff (tricky for me) is quite the binary thing. I was either riding everything, or if I lost my confidence for a little bit I would start walking past everything. As for wipe-outs, I managed two endos. One endo was while I was walking the bike. The other end resulting in me getting trapped under my bike and having to commando crawl out from under it, which was actually a lot worse than the crash itself.
