Mountain Biking (Single Track) 1:04:25 [3] 12.47 km (11.6 kph) +218m

First real ride on my new bike! 'Bent and I went for a Palgrave single track ride. We're still feeling stiff from Storm and we figured that a sunny Sunday afternoon spin would loosen us up. This bike is almost 4 lb heavier than my other one and I felt that difference a little on the climbs. What I noticed more were the longer wheelbase and wider handlebars, which meant I had to steer a bit differently. I clipped my handlebar on one tree but didn't go down. Looking at Strava segments that I've done on both bikes, I was usually at the slow end of my range but in the same ballpark, which is reasonable. I didn't buy this bike to ride Palgrave's fast, flowy trails and I think it will shine on more rugged trails. Riding less than 48 hours after a challenging adventure race may also have something to do with my pace! :)
