Indie the mountain bike just got his first taste of technical downhill singletrack. We made two runs of the Downieville Downhill trail this weekend!
This glamour shot was taken at nigh 8000 feet at Packer Saddle, where the bike shuttle from Yuba Expeditions dropped us off for our 16 mile downhill run back to ~3000 ft. Everyone else in the group (and on the trail) were riding full-suspension bikes — I was pretty psyched to be rockin’ my steel hardtail. A couple old guys even murmured appreciatively, “Looking good on that hardtail. Old school!”
