Troy and I decided to ride the course that's marked out for next weekend's MTB race
at Peaceful Valley. PV isn't normally open to the general public, but racers are allowed to pre-ride the course this week -- so we pretended to be racers. ;-)
It was fun but TOUGH -- lots of climbing. It was 95% non-technical, but the one technical stretch was a scary, rocky, sandy downhill (I walked most of it).
We were out for 2:54 but stopped lots of times to re-group; actual moving time was 1:52.
