Spinning two wheels, kicking up mud, riding through a rock garden followed by a wet bridge followed by an awkwardly placed root, slightly slanted to the side. Having to put my foot down. For. Like. A. Second. I’ll admit it.
I’m not the super fastest. But I race. Last year I came in second in the women’s novice category for the season. We’re surprisingly friendly to each other while riding.
I’m not the president of my local NEMBA branch (New England Mountain Bike Association). But I’ve led the occasional ride and I never miss my group rides or big festivals.
What I do is ride. A lot. What I like to ride is technical cross country, but I am game for whatever I find. My favorite rides are where we are all stopped to catch our breath and I kick us off again with, “watch this.”
It can be pretty muddy, pretty sketchy, pretty rough, very not pretty. Sometimes I even swear when I ride (just a little). Oh yes, and I ride it all in a skirt.
