So begins my tapering for Goldrush and more importantly, TransRockies. Neal and I did an easyish MTB ride around Lake Allatoona yesterday. We found some neat trails with some steep ups and downs, so I got to test out my Scott a bit more. I felt less top heavy on the steep downhills than any bike I've EVER owned and the uphills were even more shocking. I attempted to ride up a ridiculously steep pitch and somehow, I was maintaining traction and riding up it. It wasn't until I lost concentration and yelled to Neal "Holy $hit!! Can you believe I'm riding up this???" that I hit some loose rock and came off. My Turner is going to feel like a heavy beast at TransRockies after riding the hardtail for the last couple of weeks.
