Went out on the new bike today, and as someone coming from riding my hybrid commuter, mountain biking is hard! I did about 4-5 miles of rooty singletrack, 3-4 miles of sandy, steep double track and 15 miles on packed gravel. I fell once on the single track after hitting a stump while planted in the saddle and nearly went off of a berm because I entered too fast. I probably saved myself from falling 3 or 4 times with a stiff leg. Traction was hard to come by on the sand, but it was fun. All in all, I think I'll be back on the trails every day till I do better!
