Another Combo Ride

It seems like John likes combo thesedays.

Last ride was 5 different trails, and the last Sunday, his choice was another 3 different trails near Mt.Takao.

Yup it was fun but God I was dying!

Love downhill but ugh hillclimb…

(my ass was already sore enough from 15hours flight from FL then this sort of “hillclimb” with mtb only a few days later… OMfG)

Anyway,
here’s the trail #1

90% of time it’s beautiful sunny day when I ride!

After a hew hours ride,
we rode around and climb up the hill again

DYING  🙂
This is my #2 ride for the day

OK, I had a choice.
To make 2 and done or go another one.
John asked me before we headed to trail #2 if I wanna ride a LOT.
He gave me a choice.
but
I think,
I didn’t give him the answer.
I think I said something like, “hmmm maybe maybe not.”

and I think I asked him, as far as I remember, if we can decide after #2 whether we go for #3 or not.

Well, we had time and I was not dead YET.
SO,
here’s the #3

well, it was another little bit of snow ride day!

日曜日は、またしても雪のないところを探し求め、
低い山へ。
どうやら最近の死神さんチョイスは
登って下って登って下って登って下って・・・のハッピーセット。
ってことで、
前回は5本でしたが、
今回は3本。
本数は減ったけど、時間的にも今回は7時間位かかってるし、
ちょっと大変だったのかなぁ~
何よりも2本目の登りは死んでたw
むしろ1本目の登りで既にグダグダ。
とは言いつつ、山の中に入っちゃうと元気になる☆
ので、舗装道終了=元気スタート♪
一応死神氏は2本でやめるか3本行くかどうするか
選択肢はくれてたんだけど、
無駄に負けず嫌い?!なんだから、
2本か3本かって聞かれたら
2本なんて言うわけがない!笑
というか、
自分でもやってみなきゃ行けるか行けないか分かんない。
結果、3本。
そして何か餌で釣られてるみたいだけど、
3本目がメインディッシュとかいう意地悪なコース設定。
というか、賢い。
というわけで、帰国後最初のリハビリライドも無事終了。
(リハビリには程遠いスパルタだけど)
なんだかんだ死んでたけど、
後から写真みたら意外と楽しそうにしてるじゃんね。
舗装の登りはローディたちとすれ違ったけど、雪じゃぁ大変ね。
ちなみに、最初の2本は林道に入ったらほぼドライ。
雪はところどころあるけど、まぁたいしたことなし。
雪というより固い氷ちっく。
藪の中を歩いたり、スティープすぎて乗れないとこがあったり、
どう考えても私には曲がりきれないスイッチバックがあったり、
降りてばかりだったけど、
なかなか楽しいコースでした♪
何が良かったって、
富士山があんなにキレイに大きくくっきり見えること!!!

    Once again I thank you for a very nice little pictorial view into the mtbtokyogirl world. Nice touch bringing a stove and kettle on the ride for a picnic. As I look at your photos I can’t help but think that your forests look very much like my forests… steep hills, some snow, some mud. By for now. Kat

      Stove and kettle and noodle is only for a not-too-cold day! Or we freeze to death while boiling the water lol
      U know I love travel so I want to ride somewhere in the US one of these days!
