So I tried mountain biking for the first time last week, and had so much fun! Riding through the woods felt very different. I got muddy, experienced bugs and it was very quiet. My first ride, I did jump a few logs. Also when we were going up a small hill, I actually bent my chain ring. We had to use a rock to put it back in place. I am a daredevil and risk taker, so I wouldn’t mind falling… but when mountain biking I still can’t get too comfortable with leaning in turns. As of right now, I do plan on racing a mountain bike race before the year is over! - Maize, 15 year old Junior athlete and 15-16 Junior National Road Champion!
