Today I took the Stumpjumper out for a spin on one of the local trails. It was just a 4 mile ride on some non-technical doubletrack, but it was my first MTB ride since I started my cancer treatments. I stopped a few times to catch my breath, especially on the 3/4 mile gradual climb up "grassy hill". It was great to be out in the dirt again and I felt great after the ride. Tomorrow I'm taking Ribby out for her first ride since early June, about a 12 mile flat ride around the airport.
