07022018 – Canoe & Mountain Bike

As a big group we took out 3 canoes and 3 kid’s kayak’s and paddled through 3 different lakes.  We ended up finding an amazing sandy saddle that we played at for a few hours.  It had a rope swing and was a great place to play and eat our lunch. We took a short cut back to the cars, but it was a delightful way to spend the morning.

When we got back Joe and I had a window to go for another ride. We probably should have driven over to the Rally Center to get more time on the main section of trails, but we still had a great ride.  We rode from the campground on Drag Line, to the new Switchback Trail and then onto Easy Street near the Rally Center. As this was my second time through it felt a little easier and it helped having Joe in front of me too!  I had 8 segment PR’s for the whole ride! We didn’t have quite enough time to hit all the trails in this unit but we went up a few of them including Mucker Mountain and Sand Hog. I got to ride on some new to me segments of Easy Street/Sidewinder that I bypassed the previous day. We then headed back to the campground and took a quick dip in the lake to cool off.  It was a great day for riding and canoeing!   Our ride was just over 10 miles.
