More MTB fun, this time no crashes and lots of climbing
Here's yesterday's ride. No crashes this time, but plenty of climbing to make me live up to my username!
This is the South Fork American River Trail (SFART). The trailhead is right across the road from the Salmon Falls trailhead. It starts off with quite a bit of climbing on technical singletrack with tight switchbacks. Good stuff!
There's not nearly as much technical stuff as on Salmon Falls though. There's lots of smooth singletrack and doubletrack.
It ended up being almost a 24 mile round trip ride with 3,442' of climbing.
Thanks! Here's where I think the 29er comes up short. These are all the tight singletrack switchbacks on the descent down to the river near the end of the ride. I felt like I had to crawl around these corners. Maybe it's just me though. After all, this was only my third mtb ride after 15 years of road cycling. I may be a little rusty.
