Was really looking forward to a ride up on the Altura trail today. Place was heaving, never been to a trail centre that was as busy.
My general nemesis when riding is ice and slippy roots. I am hopeless on them. So the fact that the place was frozen solid and had lots of slippy roots and off camber rock sections, I may as well have walked round. Scared the bejesus out of me to be honest. I almost kissed the ground when I got back to the car park in one peice. I spent last night trying to get my helmet camera working. Damn glad I didnt now, I would have been totally ashamed of the results.
Views were breathtaking though. A lovely clear day. To cap it all though my camera was set on VGA so all my pics are shite.
The trail was, in truth, ace. I just cant wait to go back in the spring and do it some justice.
