So I took out the old gary fisher for a nice 15 mile ride half road to get there and half trails. I was feeling good being back in the woods after a summer of mostly road riding and running. I forgotten how much more energy and strength is required to climb nasty rooted steep climbs vs. anything on a road. That being said I almost ranover a big deer with horns and a giant black snake on the trail.....Scared the "c@@P" out of me....
Locally some poor dude got killed by a blackbear in NW NJ..
So be careful outhtere.
