Beautiful Maple Ride at Mt.DBST

John finally decided to take me to “The” Trail.

Total 7 freakin hours (including lunch break etc)
about 25km.
Took 4hours to climb up
and I could ride only first 1hour
then had to just walk till the top of the mountain.
ugh
(John said he and his friends always ride up mostly…
but I don’t think it’s possible for me!!)

He has been telling me and people talked about this trail,
So I kinda knew how it would be like but never thought that he would take me so soon.
I thought it would be next year or so as I can’t ride fast and technically I’m still poor.
(well, it’s normal isn’t it cuz I’m only a 6month rider…)

but anyway,
it was the perfect day for the ride.

Just so damn beautiful!

at the end of the road before entering the mountain.

seriously, gourgeous.
There were many hikers as well and I don’t get surprised at all
cuz it was perfect day for hiking!
It was pretty hot this summer then temperature dropped really fast after September so leaves turned to yellow and red very really brightly.

Just LONG tired uphill.
Imagine, 4hours uphill hiking with heavy stuff with.
“All you need is love” is seriously lie.
All you need is stamina and smile and enough water and food 🙂

early morning air is a bit chily but felt so good

beautiful mountain trail

just walk and it makes you so happy

the hardest part

but the beutiful maples and breathtaking scenery from the top of the mountain actually made me forget about all the complains!

Look!

ready to get going !

perfect weather and perfectly fun!

and riding down the hill for 3hours!
So much fun!

ride ride ride!

LONG LONG LONG ride! LOVE IT!
and felt so good to ride and slide on the crispy heavy fallen leaves!

I wish I could ride faster though 😉

so much fun. I can’t quit riding

I think I got too excited
when I went back home I had a fever 🙂
It was THAT fun I bet !

死神さんが何を血迷ったか、昨日はこんなところに行きました。
もうちょっと練習して来年にでも連れてって欲しいなぁ~って
言ったはずなんだけど。

でもでもでも、
行ってみて大正解!!!!!
とにかくパーフェクトなタイミングで、
紅葉真っ盛り!

林道を走ってる時点で紅葉がキレイで、もうウキウキしちゃう。
山道に入ってからの乗車率は0.5%くらいで
ひたすら押して登って半泣き。
でも、
紅葉が本当にキレイで、景色を楽しみながら
写真をとったりして休憩しながら
ノンビリハイキング状態w
山頂からの担ぎは超スティープで、
軽いストークちゃんですらメチャクチャ重たく感じたし。
そんなことをしながら下りスタートの手前で
カップラーメンを食べ、コーヒーを飲み、
いざ!

楽しすぎ☆
疲れちゃって登り返しで登りきれないとこも多々あったけど、
でも、
楽しかった~~!!!!!!!!!!
サクサクの落ち葉で下なんか見えないし♪
ガタガタだし♪
ま、相変わらず遅っそいから、
後ろを走ってもらったヤマさんには申し訳ない限り。
「最後の高速バーム区間を満喫してね」
ってチー先輩からのアドバイスがあったけど、
私は「高速」どころか「超低速」で失速みたいな(笑)
全然遅いよって、死神さんにも言われちゃったし。

だけど、
楽しかったなぁ~
いつも下りはあっという間に終わっちゃうけど、
昨日は下っても下ってもまだまだ下り~って感じで。
ま、登っても登ってもまだ登り~だったんだけどさ。

でも、もうちょっと体力をつけなきゃなって思った。
ってことで、計画ピッタリお昼に山頂、3時に下山。

また行きたいな♪
楽しすぎて夜熱がでちゃったけどw

    Wow mtbtokyogirl, what a fun story. Beautiful photos too. Are you taking those images with a tripod and timer, or is there another rider helping you out? Either way, my compliments to the photographer too. Well done friend. Kat

      Thanks,Kat!!
      It’s always hard to choose only a few pics from tons of nice ones. Actually it’s John whos taking all these pics. He is good at riding and taking pics both at the same time 😉
