IT'S SUMMER; HIT THE TRAILS
Summer affords me the opportunity to take Sam on some of the mountain biking trails I enjoy. The other day we rode the trails at Washington Township Park in Avon. The park has a well-developed matrix of easy and advanced trails. We wore ourselves out in a little over 90 minutes. Honestly, there are two trails there--Gambler's Run and Huff's Ridge--that I have yet to complete without pushing my bike at least for a few feet. I wrecked on one jump today and have a few gashes and scrapes left over. But what a great setting--a canopy of trees and leaves covering undergrowth and a network of dry and muddy trails that dip, climb, drop, and call for constant attention.
