Ride 090629

We rode Bridal path and G today it is a fun loop
about 1hr 15mins and you get all types of riding in.


Fox gloves in full bloom












Steve rolling a boulder section of Bridal Path













Steve coming out of a trail we call Fed Bear Dead Bear












On the way out of Blair range
I caught my arm on a 6" log hiding in the berry bushes
it was pretty solid and knocked me off my bike
it rattled me for a few minutes.
