As we near the end of the year and look ahead to a new one, I like to reflect back and acknowledge the year that is ending. 2019 was a fun one for me as I learned how to mountain bike! It makes me feel like a kid again, going around turns and over what I call “loop-d-loops" with big smiles the whole way. I mostly biked with my 10 year old daughter who took to the sport very easily and it was a fun way for us to have some one-on-one time outdoors together. I was really proud of accomplishing a 15 mile ride in Bend, OR on Phil’s Trail. I hope to challenge myself next summer to get a few more of those longer rides in.
So, let’s hear it!
What new outdoor activity did you start in 2019?
Me checking out the views and regrouping to make sure I don't fall off the side!
