Thank you so much to my new friend, Julianna!
A few days ago, I got my school done early (1 P.M.), so I was able to go ride my bike on a single track trail with my dad. In case you don't know what a single track is, it's a narrow dirt trail with rocks, tree roots, branches, trees, and many other 'obstacles.' It's a type of mountain bike trail. It was my first time on a single track, and I loved it! We started with a fairly easy beginner trail that we had walked before, and it was great! There were a few times when I ran into things, and almost fell, but I didn't fall, and it was a lot of fun! In one area, we went through an aspen grove where there were a LOT of tree roots sticking up out of the ground. I hit some of them wrong a few times, but mostly, I made it through pretty well. I went over one tree root in a narrow spot in between two aspen trees, and my handlebar hit one of the trees. That threw me off a bit, but I was fine. It was really fun when we got going fast! One thing that was kind of scary was when I couldn't see what was ahead of me. There might have been a turn that blocked my vision, or even just tall grass or a tree. Also, when I was going up hills, I found that sometimes I would lose traction because it was slippery. I am still practicing sharp turns, and I need to work on going over things (such as rocks, tree roots, and logs), but overall, I think I did pretty good for my first time, and most important, I had a lot of fun! Here is a picture of me:
Do you like to ride a bike? I would love to hear about your adventures.
Have a great night!
