Mountain Biking (Single Track) 1:41:53 [3] 20.35 km (12.0 kph) +345m

First technical ride of the year! The trails took longer than usual to dry out then I injured my neck and couldn't ride. It was worth the wait.

I did most of the single track in Palgrave East and some of the double track too. Conditions are excellent except for a few muddy sections on the multi-use double track. I didn't see any poison ivy in leaf but it's almost that time.

I ran into Wayne, my former bike mechanic who still rides his mountain bike fast in his 70s. There were 20+ hikers and bikers on the trails on a week day, and I had to make a couple of last-minute swerves when other bikers were approaching head-on at high speed. Palgrave East has become popular enough that I don't think it will be safe for the dogs to come riding with us anymore.

There were a few trees down from the wind storm but all the designated MTB single track had been cleared. These photos were taken in the stretch from 15-16 km.

Clouds were amazing at my neighbour's lookout, known as Thinker's Hill.
