Ultimate fail for the first practice scoot. I couldn’t even call it a ride. The flick of the heel was just too slow as I flapped like a fish out of water and braced myself for the muddy bank beside me.
It can only get better. I traded my mountain bike for the Cannondale for my weekend 2 hour trail ride.
2 hours later...
No falls. No dramas. No bruises. Hallelujah!
What a difference the gear makes. No leg burn. Smaller energy expenditure. Responsive movements. I am looking forward to getting more confidence and letting rip to see just what this bike has in store for me.
