“Oh Fudge!”

^Oh Fudge from James . Click on Strava for the map.

Have you ever not paid attention for just one second and had a close call? I had one of those out at Madrone a while back. I was looking back for the guy following me and when I turned back I was face to face with another drop. It wasn’t a big deal, but I was slightly off the trail and didn’t see it. My life didn’t flash before me. It’s too long and boring. But it did give me an adrenaline rush.

The trails out there are great. They’re rough and rocky and technical for my skill level. I’m usually following whoever I go with and as you can see in the video, they are no where in sight. But that’s ok. It was a perfect day with good friends. What more can you ask for? How about not going over the handle bars for starters…..

  1. “Oh f@#k”, I did chuckle 😀
    Personally I find that sometimes not having time to avoid a drop-off is a good thing: I dont get the option to chicken out and find a safer route.

    1. You are so right! Sometimes I ride things when I’m following that I would stop and look at if I was by myself. This one was the result of looking back and then being caught off guard. Good to know I can adjust on the fly… 🙂
