Or, How to crash on your bike while you are standing up…
Well, after one week of having our bikes, I really wanted to have some fun with them, so we checked out Trailside Park up in Park City, UT. It was a blast, there are a lot of fun features that you can hit. Ramps, teeter-totters, and big jumps make the area a blast. The ramps and stuff that you see in the movies makes it look really easy, however, it is a lot harder.
Well, it was a good weekend… We finally hunkered down and bought bikes. My wife and decided, after much deliberation, to go with the Diamond Back, Response Sports. Link. We were pretty pumped, and decided to go up the canyon and go camping/biking the next day. I found a good trail that looked pretty fun. We set up camp, and planned on an epic day of riding the next day.
We started camped at Salamander Flats, and then drove down to the Timpanooke trailhead. Our epic ride consisted of climbing up a really steep mountain. Getting to the top, and then turning around, and going back down. We had a good time, I guess this was the baptism of fire that we where looking for with out new bikes.
It feels like forever since I have written something. There are a lot of things that I have notes with ideas… I think that I will hash out a few of them this weekend. So, stay tuned, great content is on the way.Â
