Ok it wasn't the overall first ride of the year but it kind of felt that way. Lebanon really makes you work for your fun. It's not like BC were you or I and my buddies mostly start up top and shred the luge and then push back up and session some jumps. No, you ride the whole loop. I started off feeling great! I was moving at a good clip. I could already tell the limited pump track riding was helping. I felt smoother and was getting tons of free speed. I only did the blue loop, with a couple stops to chat and session some of the cool features.
After lebanon, about 510pm, I headed over to Lexington for what was suppose to be a pregame get together and shred session, and I guess it was a shred session for one! Haha, I did meet a guy that was following the progress on facebook and he had his 3 kids with. I gave them some pointers and the rode the track for 10-15mins and they all left with grins ear to ear! So that is encouraging! At least I know that I have accomplished my goal of making it kid and family friendly!
A little after 6pm and having about 30 laps in on the pump track I said F it and loaded up and went home. Maybe impromptu isn't the best but I would have though a couple people would have shown up...? I guess everyone is busy or doesn't care....
Hopefully more people show up tomorrow and the weather holds off a bit so we can get some serious building done!
Keep it real!
