Okay, thanks for the advice! So let's see if that works with the zip file.

Took a lil ride today on a short mile long trail to a lookout point. It's a fun trail because it's 3 large hills, 2 open dirt ones with a few good "obstacles" to practice over and then it goes up the hill through the planted pine trees, which is the most fun part to ride back down

Today I went on a short but great ride on the Schönberg.
Unfortunately I didn't realize that that self timed shot was cut off on the bottom by the bench on which I had placed the camera. But on the other pic one can see what the way looks like.

It isn't cut off, it's just an artistic choice haha! Looks like a nice day of riding

Calvert Cliffs off-road

PAX, MAW, JB and son Hutch (from the Learning Journal in JC) rode the service road to the beach at Calvert Cliffs. While not super technical off-road stuff the long and steep hills of washed out gravel and sand are heart thumping, lung searing, leg burning challenges for us noobs...

Along for the ride were uni's in four flavors... K1 20, N24, KH26 and N29. We had a blast and wiped out racing, trading and fording.

Best

Enjoyed a road ride in the rain to test my new waterproof jacket and to get some hill riding practice. Riding downhill is difficult 'cos I simply can't finely apply the brake without feeling I'm gonna go over the front down the gradient. Riding up the hills has become a test of riding at walking pace and keeping the heart rate down.

Why is that? If it's too grabby try some less sticky (harder) blocks. Is your brake handle mounted so you can only reach it when leaning forward onto the handlebar? I don't use a handlebar, but I'd imagine it could make downhill braking more scary than with the brake lever under the normal saddle handle. I don't use my brake to slow down, but just as a drag to maintain a comfortable speed. The brake on my 36er is a relatively puny BMX caliper though, so probably easier to control.

Somebody will no doubt post soon saying rim brakes are rubbish and trying to sell you a disc kit

(Nice hill BTW )

For some reason I misread that as "skate park" - took me a minute or so to go from looking for the bowls and ramps, to wondering if it was a local joke, to realising I was an idiot
