Biking with Mark from Elevate Cycles


Finally got to Ride with Mark from downstairs on the SMBA trails behind Skidmore this morning.  I think he was suprised at my ability.  I certainly don't have the technical skills he does but I was able to make it over a lot of the terrain that he did.  We did a cool loop that ended on the "shoots and ladders" trail I like that has large rock formations that the trail follows and a drop at the end.  When we got to the drop Mark said he didn't want to tackle it with his cross country bike but I just pointed it and dropped it in a classic "dead sailor" position almost crashing when I touched down... haha.  It was a great ride and I look forward to riding with him in the mornings before he has to go to work all summer long.  Hopefully by the end of the summer I'll be able to follow him over anything that is back there.
