My sister and her boyfriend came up for a little visit. We wanted to get a mountain bike ride in, so looking at the weather this morning was our only option! He brought his mountain bike and my sister’s bike could work if it had wider tires. This would be her first mountain bike experience so it was a much better choice for her to use my Mukluk instead. She loved it!!
We rode all the Loppet trails, starting with Conundrum and 45 North first before doing Area 36. The signage on 45 North was a little confusing so we took the early exit – the new section might have been open but it wasn’t clear. We finished by doing the North Loop. My sister enjoyed all the sections and the different challenges that each one brought. We didn’t really talk about any of the obstacles but she did them pretty well for a newbie.
She also really enjoyed riding the Mukluk. It might have been a little high for her and the tire pressure was a little high too I think but she loved the security of the wide tires and feeling like she could roll over everything! After about 90 minutes we decided to be done for the day. It was tempting to keep riding, but probably a good choice to be done before everyone was beat!
About 9 miles of riding.
