I thought I'd post a few pictures of my mountain bike before I take it on its maiden voyage on Sunday. In the 10 days or so since I got the bike I've only ridden it to the end of my driveway once and a second time took me a distant three houses passed my driveway. Its been cold, with the daily high temperatures of around 50-degrees Fahrenheit since Christmas. The low temperatures have been in the 30's.
It's also htken me several days to outfit my bike for the journey ahead. I finally got my MTB shoes last week. They're black Bontrager RXL shoes - wide. I had to special order them, of course.
Sunday will be my first official MTB ride. A trip to Dauset Trail for a noon ride is scheduled. Some of Southern Crescent Cycling's best MTB'ers should be there too. I'm sure that I'll be the guy in the back making all the noise as I change gears trying to decide which out of 30 gears available is the best.
I plan to bring the GoPro Hero3 camera the club purchased as a Christmas present to its members. So, you can look forward to some cool mountain biking videos in the coming months.
Thanks for reading.
