Mountain Biking is a gas. Since you provide all momentum by working hard (anaerobically), we only hit the brakes if we have to............. period.
There are a couple of trails that I ride that I almost scream yippee!!!! I love the thrill of using balance, skill and a bit of luck to try to improve on my times. On one small section of trail, my friend who taught me to mountain bike said he almost crashed 5 times. I had the same experience, there were 5 different times I wasn't sure if we were going to make the corner. When riding singletrack at speed, they plant trees in the damndest places. Since I am the oldest and slowest of my bunch, I supplant my riding with skill and balls............ What a blast.
