I went for a solo ride this morning on Barrel Roll Trail in Santa Clara. I haven't riden it for a few months so I sort of forgot how much of a workout it is. I was using this as my training ride before I try Zen Trail in a few weeks.
The ride went really good for me. I forgot about all the tech stuff but there was nothing that held me back. It took me about an 1:45 minutes to run, which is a major improvement on my first time of about 3 hours. so I got some good photos, some good exercise, and I didn't crash.
