That was a big mistake-- details below...
A special spot on the Copper Creek now has orange mushrooms to seemingly compliment the creek color!
It turns out the clips were worn so I had a hard time keeping the cleats in the pedals (Crank Brothers Candy) and the soles had absolutely no traction so my feet keep slipping off the pedals at all the critical bouncy fast moments when you need to stay anchored on your bike to maneuver!! NOT!!!
I took two nasty endos at normally easy spots in the Central Maze area (One endo occurred in front of other riders - major embarrassment!!!)
|Crappy old worn old mountain biking shoes|
(I bought a new pair later that day--these went to the garbage!)
|"Mark of the Endo"|
I mellowed out a bit once I got to the car and decided to make the most of being there and opted instead to ride the rail trail. It was actually very relaxing and fun.
