Out riding again

First the spring kind of came to where i live with pretty warm days. Then it all changed and the temperature dropped to really low numbers. This messed me up a bit. I am really bad at handling the cold, or my body is. Always get to a state where i feel sick. That happened last week and my last ride that week was my BMX test. Which was pretty short and slow.

Three days without any riding at all just to get some rest. The cold temperatures is still here but i got a pretty decent ride yesterday. The hail that came during my ride was not pleasant but the rest of the ride felt pretty good. I am planning to get out riding today as well. Not sure if it will be on one of my bikes or if i am going to take the mountainboard. Will choose when i get home.


Trail Trials

Because of some intense riding last week my knee have been giving me some minor problems. I guess i got to much to fast and my body was not prepared for the change.

After two days resting i needed to get out on a ride. Test my knee and explore a bit. Focused on a more relaxed ride with some challenges here and there that put pressure on my knee and things are not as good as i hoped. The main goal of this ride was to get out riding. During the ride i decided to explore a bit and see if i could find some possible trail like features that could be used for practicing. Found two kinds of features. First some benches that i should be able to deal with soon. Those stairs i found is a bit above my current skill level. At least the bigger one.

I did not find as many interesting things as i hoped but still inspiring and fun to imagine what could be done, at some point later on. I will try to have more rides like this to find challenging features. To have more of that trials practice but with a focus on trail riding.
