Oh...HELL no! Not done. I actually enjoy it.

This was the first time back on the mtb. Finally finished physical therapy from the broken clavicle. I've been afraid to get back on it till now. It's just been too tender and I already re inured it once in weight room and had to start over with PT. not fun! It went well today. My coach had me riding in zone 2 today anyway, so it was a perfect excuse to go out there, enjoy it, and take it nice and slow.

Doh! Actually I didn't know that. Glad I just went to take the pic. I thought it was funny I never saw that trail before. I caught the stone out the corner of my eye coming down a trail the opposite way I usually go. Never even saw tat trail back there before.

Its really not a huge deal, but that climb out is poorly built, doesn't ride well.
From how the trail looks, its being ridden a lot, not your fault. Swallow cliffs is where
they issue very expensive tickets, so its been pretty quite in the triangle.
