My friend Gabe from San Clemente and I hit the trail today. He's not a mountain biker, but like most of us that did BMX he rises to the occasion. Same ride I did with my other friend Jeff two days ago. I found a 8'-tall rock trailside that I could ride up the back of, and in the front was a narrow spine angling down to the dirt with steep drops left and right. I told Jeff I'd try it some day. Today I rode into it on my Smash and dropped it, my rear wheel skating off the line near the bottom. More intimidating than tricky. Traded bikes back to my Czar and promptly went OTB just dicking around on some easy rocks, classic low speed dump more bruising to ego than anything. I was just getting warmed up... I knew damn well the bottom of the trail was iced up, but damn if I didn't come screaming in there thinking I could shave it, bike and me go down instantly and end up looking like a pretzel. I must have whacked an embedded rock with my knee pad, skin broken under the pad, flapper on my forearm from a pedal stud. Yard sale alert!!!!!!!!!! Playing 1.5 hours of hacky sack afterward was probably a dumb idea. I think no riding tomorrow... Had to think of my pal @Faust29, cuz my last ride with him was my last decent dump. Prolly overdue, hehe. And how about two in one ride...not sure I've ever done that... Thank you, Boulder of Redemption!
