Friday MTB at Claremont (10/7)

Took the mtb out today to test the new rear wheel. Have to make sure it stays together before I go wandering about ending up with another 2 hour walk ha ha! Worked well and I got in a good ten miles.

I did Claremont Hills in the clockwise direction. Once I got to the top I figured I'd wander to the left toward the signals on the hill. After I explored some around the hills looking for some single track I had seen in some videos. Hmm, short sections here and there, climb for two minutes then descend for a minute. Oh well, I'm not much into technical stuff anyway. I did see another single track section at the very top of the trail. There was one trail that went down the middle, very down, more like a cliff. I'd kill myself on that thing so no way ha ha!

Just an exploration ride so I threw in some posing on video.

Looks like it was warmer than yesterday. How did the wheel hold up?

Looks like some nice trail conditions. I assume the trails are much nicer now that it has rained?

Trail was pretty nice. I went in different directions and the lightly traveled trail was a bit softer and a bit damp but the main was good.
