Sherando Lake

This trip was a few weeks ago but I finally got around to getting a blog up and running so I will just do a little write up on it now. Well we finally got to the area where we were going to park and it was already like 90+ degrees. Off we went to the trail head. As most of you know this some of the best riding around. My first real mountain bike ride. As we entered the trail head to a false flat for about 5 miles or so and entered a pretty rocky section, Todd told me to go ahead and navagaite my way through. WOW I was pretty amazed that I was able to make it through it on my first try. Well after that is when the real climbing began. Todd told me just to take my time and pace my self. I tried to pace myself but man what a tough climb that was. But it really paid off when we got to the top and started to decend down the parkway. After recovering down the parkway we hit about 2 miles of down hill on the trial. That was an eye opener. Over all it was a good day, lot of fun and some good training for the SM100.
