The Canyons Day 3!

For the final day they run lifts and let you ride the Bike Park at the Canyons, I hit the slopes with Tamara and Sarah! We rode Wild Mouse over and over then went back to the big drop! 

The Canyons Day 2 (then dirt jumping!)

Tamara, Bre and I rode the Canyons in the sunshine on Friday. Here is what I wrote to my skills coach Gene Hamilton of BetterRide:
I need to give you credit for this big air. You stood at those jumps with me 14 months ago and had to talk me through going off the smallest one. I was scared out of my mind and never ever thought the biggest one would ever be in my bag of tricks. But as I was riding yesterday I realized I was getting big air everywhere on the trails and so I rolled up to the big jump and went off without a second thought. Then proceeded to go off it 8 more times, hollering joyfully the entire time! Thank you for teaching me the skills to go from a scared XC racer to a girl that loves big air!

 Then I picked up my son and we hit the PC dirt jumps for an hour. Yes, I was tired by the end of the day, but never tired OF riding bikes!

The Canyons Day 1

Lift Serve at The Canyons with Sarah today!

Aaaahhhhhffff season!

I took a few weeks off the bike and turned to the trails with my two feet!

Family Time in Northern CA

Mammoth Mountain

The views never fail to disappoint up there. Thanks to our family friend Peter that motivated me to get out and ride the Gondola up and bike down the mountain a couple of times!
