My 1st Mountain Bike Ride, 06-22-2012

Thanks to Gary I had my first mountain bike riding experience, it was fun, it was pretty and I plan to do it some more.  We rode up a trail off of Hiway 38 to the restaurant at Angelus Oaks and back down.  My Garmin only captured the ride up, but not back down: .
