Riding solo... I find myself doing it more often
« on: April 11, 2019, 08:38:00 AM »
I find myself in a in a strange situation...  My kids are grown and having kids of their own. As we all know spare time is precious with a young growing family. My son's baby is 1 month old, so he'll be lucky to get out a few times this season. My riding friends sometimes find it difficult to find the time to ride...  so I decided if I want to ride more (which I do), I just need ride solo...  I can usually hook up with someone at the trail head or sometimes even on the trail, but lately I've enjoyed going it alone. I've found sometimes there's nothing's better then finding a fun section and riding it over and over, testing out different trails / different lines / different sections without thinking about the group or riding buddies. When bouncing off trees, I can rides with out thoughts of making sure my riding buddies are able to clear this obstacle. I will concede when solo I do back down the pace a bit and will take the easier trail, I've found that I seem to put in more miles when solo... yes I admit it's on the easier trails, but I'm still busting down the trails...  Isn't that what it's all about.    ;D

Just as a safety measure when riding solo I do carry my phone and have a few friends near the riding area that can bail me out in-case of an emergency.  I also wear my helmet blue tooth communication device and can make a call with just the push of a button on my helmet.

How many other ride solo?

been alone at the track, but that just means no friends have shown up.
