Cross Country Mountain Bike Racing - No Thanks!

On Saturday, Kyle and I went for a run/hike on the same trail I ran Thursday at lunch with coworkers. The 4 mile loop was gorgeous - it is so lush and green from all the rain! When approaching the trail we saw a bunch of cyclists with race numbers tacked on. Via Google Alerts, I saw this blog post from a Santa Cruz cyclists named Karen who was at the event. It's an enjoyable read and points out two facts:

1. Ford Ord has a lot of tough hill climbs and it is M-U-D-D-Y
2. Mountain biking is D-A-N-G-E-R-O-U-S ... two crashes?! One of which involves a concussion?!

No thanks, I'll stick to paved roads.
