As a follow up to yesterday's post “Off the Beaten Path. . .”, today I escaped the freeways and busyness of everyday life and hit the trails aboard my two-wheel pedal machine with my roommate and a friend. We took off from the Cheseebro Trailhead in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains and headed north towards Sulfur Springs. The trail lined with hoof prints and trees blowing in the wind and runners agonize over every step as the sun beats down on their bodies. As we roll along, we dodge rocks and tree ruts, and speed along the trail trying to miss the beehive of angry bees. I have never seen so many rocks and single track trails in all of my riding history – one short year. I mostly ride fire roads with a little single track action and I love hauling downhill (within reason). As we crested the Lookout area, we stopped to appreciate the canyon trails which were so beautiful and take the time to appreciate God's beauty. We stopped briefly to pray and share what was happening in our lives. After we finished we took a quick single-track to the fire road and headed for home. Ten miles and 3 hours later (I had to stop often because I was winded) – we packed up and headed home. Mountain biking is all about the fun and fellowship and hanging and trying not to get beat by any girls walking! See you on the trails.
