This past weekend was full of “girl power” mountain biking. On the first ride with my best, mountain biking girlfriends, I worked up enough courage to go down a hill I’d never attempted before…twice (because making it down alive the first time felt like a total fluke).
I swear it’s steeper and sketchier in real life. And boy did it feel like I was going faster too (here’s some guys doing it from another angle).
Then I took the girls out on a ride to help them prepare for the “Over the Hump” our local, summer, mountain bike race series. Princess conquered some pretty steep, and rutted hills and Pumpkin did an amazing job considering she’s had little experience on a bike with hand brakes and gears.
At the end of our ride, I snapped a shot that I know will be come one of my favorite “mother/daughter” photos of all time and it’s featured on the “I Am..” blog today! Check it out HERE.
