You’ve crawled uphill for 45 minutes and finally reach the entrance to your trails. The day starts here.
You drop into the line, and take the opening corners perfectly. A rare achievement in itself. The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and you’re slamming down the trail, picking up speed as you go.
You fly down a drop, going faster and faster, wind behind you, and then just as you’re past the crux of the run… you get flashed by a speed gun and fined hundreds by the police for your efforts.
Not exactly how you wanted that sentence to end is it? And what if we told you that on some trails, that could soon be the punishment even if you’re only riding at 16mph. It’s a sad truth.
