Craig, Ryan, Mark, and Rob, taking a little break.
I have heard a lot of good things about riding Wissahickon, so when it was brought up as the ride for today, I was in. After meeting up with Marcus at Victory we headed for the ride. The rest of the group met us at the trail head. Things started a little strange for me. After I got dressed I hopped on my bike and there was a problem. My rear hub was just spinning. Luckily, Mark had seen this before and knew how to get it going again. Whew, here I thought my day was over before it started.
I was warned about the climbing but I still wasn't ready for it, especially when it started right off the bat. We hit 3 or 4 tough climbs in the the first 45 minutes. After that the fun really started. The trails up there are Fucking Awesome. Some of the down hills were ripping fast and others were super technical. We rolled through some pretty cool sections did a few more climbs, then Rob had to bail. We headed for the last section. Marcus tells me 1 more climb, of course he had been saying that all day. The last climb was a bitch, but the down hills were sweet.
We also ran into Nick Schaffer and his step aunt Jill, who were leading a nice group. We rolled into the lot after 2 hours of some of the best riding I have done in a long time. I can't wait to get back there.
Well Thanks for reading,
