I met up with Dylan on Monday to do are weekly team ride (Ian also joined us). I only did 18 miles and under 2 hours. Dylan rode from home putting in over 4 hours. We did a few laps of Fountainhead trying to avoid new sections that were muddy. There are lots of short steep ups and downs. I think these trails will be 10 times better when they wear in and dry out. should be great this summer!
My heart rate was pegged at race-pace for the majority of the ride while Ian and Dylan were riding causally and chatting in front of me.
