So I headed out under a very light, melting snow and arround 2-3 C. The trails were open today so I went there, about 45min of riding from where im staying. I rode the trails for about 2h30 and then came back the same way I had gotten there. These trails were quite nice actually. Very, very flowy and fast with a significant lack of tecnical features. They were really fun to ride nevertheless and it was a good high speed bike handling skills practice. Ground is mostly hard pack, twisty singletracks with very little elevation; the perfect conditions to fly! Killing those corners at high speed was fun and im starting to trust those new tires I just got, some Kenda Small Block 8.
Trail riding means loads of fun but also very stochastic power output, very little control on it and a lot of coasting time and soft pedaling. Therefore, a lot of time is spent in Z1 and a few spikes are forced by the terrain which means some time is also logged in Z5 and Z6. Overall though, it was still a good workout, fitnesswise and for skills too. Finished the day with 2500kJ. Lots of food on the menu tonight, with some wine of course, but not too much if I want to go ride tomorrow. Alcool isnt the best thing for recovery and sleep, I should write about that in a near futur.
This is about as technical as it gets here in Georgia. At least where I am.
Hardpack clay: fast!
