Tuscaloosa Tollhouse Pie

Things have been really kicking up for us the mountain biking front so I thought my novice mountain biking self should share some thoughts with you.

  • You will fall. You will have cuts, scrapes, and bruises.
  • But, until the day you fall in horse poop, you’re not having a bad day.
  • Stop thinking and peddle through it. Whenever I just push a little harder, I usually make it over the rocks, roots and other impediments.
  • Freeze your extra water bottle. It’s gotten so hot that I cleared my only water in like 15 minutes on one of our last rides. Regretted that 5 minutes later.
  • Even when you suck, you’re doing better then the person who already gave up.
  • The gear may look silly, but it really serves a purpose. Your butt will thank you later.

I won’t lie, I am not very good at mountain biking. I am not quick in the switchbacks and the tight windy trails leave me gripping my spiffy grips until my knuckles turn white. But I keep trying. And where a short 3 mile trail would leave me winded and tired last year, 6-8 miles doesn’t phase me any more. There has been progression and I may never be a mounting bike racing queen but I feel better about myself for doing it. I want to set up healthy active lifestyles now before my metabolism fails on me and I have to give up the Fat Kid Friendly part of this site.
