Took my new wife on this trail today and she was totaly into it and had the whole downhill thing mastered and she can handel her own on the uphill parts as well. For any of you Western Slopers out there you have more than likley riden this trail and know what it is about. She did great and we did the whole thing in less than 2 hours. Which being her first time on anything that had that much drop and rise in it I thought was great. The only sketch part of the day, other than the ride ending, was we saw bear cub but no momma bear. We pedaled like we on the last mile before we got some Tecate and r&r.
