Wednesday 25 April 2012: Biketism of fire
I took my bike offroad this morning. Short track - a good thing, given both my lack of fitness, and my complete MTB n00bness.
Short the track may have been, but it's not smooth. Lots of rocks, lots of sand, and a few hills, some steep (seemed like 45 degrees to me... thankfully short) - and replete with said rocks and sand.
Max HR ... 220 - age = 180.
I reached 194 O_O
I didn't come off or crash, even down the hills with all the rocks, and the (hardtail) bike's rear slipping around appreciably. So I'm pleased with myself, and with my bike. 8)
I paused at the end of the track long enough to take this. It looks rather over-busy on my iPhone, but should be better larger.
