My wrist is back to 100% from my OTB mountain bike accident and I was ahead of schedule on a report I was working on so I decided to tag a long with Sharon and her Dirt Girl buddy Bev.

Having learnt from my previous Dirt Girl MTB experiences. I just hung at the back and did not set the pace. I didn’t have any input on which trails we would ride and I didn’t give out any tips or suggestions for improvement.

My only 2 jobs were:

  • don’t fall off my bike and get hurt!
  • take pictures of the ladies in action

My rebuilt Nomad has a 1″ shorter TT and the shorter wheelbase. 1″ doesn’t sound like a lot, but the bike rides noticeably differently. It’s not as stable as the bigger frame, but a lot more manuevrable. In our tight twisty forest trails that’s not a bad trade off.

So I used the ride to play around with the bike and get to know it all over again.

The ride was a success. I didn’t get hurt and the ladies appreciated having a personal photographer along on the ride.

It’s nice to see the trails drying out and to get out into the dirt with some friends.

Proving I was there... ;)

I’m looking forward to another summer of Vancouver Island mountain biking.

If I play my cards right I may get to do more Dirt Girls ride as the token Dirt Hombre and photographer.
