Mary's Mountain MTB

Finally dusted off the bike after a two month hiatus. Dave is back in town and his bike was supposed to be here which was the catalyst behind yesterday's ride. I was also curious to see how those trails were on bike vs. running. Luckily the rain didn't do much damage and it was a fast descent to Shawtown Junction. Around Trout pond is non-technical and mostly flat but the ascent up Mary's Mountain from that side had a few tricky sections where I hopped off the bike. Nearly all of it is bikeable I'm sure but not on my set up yesterday (seat was too high for some of the up/down sections. However, the descent off the summit was fast and had good terrain. The perfect level of difficulty for an intermediate biker. So I'm making a Strava segment for that one. The ride back up and out of Shawtown was more difficult than I expected - loose wet rock made it slow going but I was out before I knew it. Looking forward to more rides this Fall!
