Too Much Fun at the Mt.ForeverYoung

OK, I want to shout one thing right now.

that is,

O-M-F-G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

🙂

well, you might think F is not required
BUT
it is necessary
as it was such a huge Fun and
Fantastic
Fascinating
and
Fabulous ride!!!

I was like this,

woooohooooo!!!

woooohooooo!!!

John’s choice for the Saturday was Mt. Forever-Young which I’ve never been before.

He said this trail used to be a friendly one and much shorter and easier so everyone loved to ride
but it’s got a vast damage from landslide after heavy storm a few years ago
(because the soil is volcanic ash from Mt.Fuji, it’s too soft!!)
the original path has gone and now this trail has become a pretty tough one.

and…

YUP!! it was tough.

1. First paved road …the last 3km uphill was HELL!! I thought I was gonna die.

2. In the wood, just before getting to the mountain top, OMG, I was like, NO WAY!!

because it’s such a steep hill, you cannot push the bike but you just gotta carry your bike on your back.
I was unlucky enough that the hikers walking behind us were faster than we thought, it seemed they could easily catch us anytime so I had no choice but just kept going 😦

keep going, girl!!

keep going, girl!!

uhh

uhh

3. We forgot to bring enough food
( they were all left in the car…oh well)

Coffee break!

Rough and Smooth, Curvy and Sexy. Fast and High.
Aww…

My eyes kept following John’s line and I tried to ride exactly the same.
Nothing was on my mind.
Ah it felt soooo good.

土曜は久しぶりのチャーリー。
今回は初めてのところへ。
いろいろ行きまくってきた1年だったから、
だんだんレパートリーが無くなってきたっていうのが
死神さんの言い分。
ということで、ちょっと遠くへ行ってきました

最近は簡単にサクッと走れるところが多かったから、
今回はちょっとだけガッツリめ。

まずは、海老名で腹ごしらえ、の予定が
ツボ押しが利きすぎたせいかお腹が痛くなって終了。
結局イマイチ調子がでないままスタートすることに。

さぁさぁ舗装道です。
しばら~くダラダラ走ってたら、坂突入。
軽快に走って去るろーでぃを横目で見ながら、
こちらはチンタラチンタラ
6km走るのかと思って覚悟していた坂道は、
3km地点で終わりだったから拍子抜け(じゃなくって、)
命拾いしたけどw
で、その後は山道を乗ったり押したり。
下ったり登ったりを繰り返して、
ついに焼きティラミス休憩!!
ずっと食べたかったC3(シーキューブ)の焼きティラミス!
でも、なにがティラミス何だか良く分からない!
けど、おいし~~~い♪

と、まぁ実は他の食料忘れてきちゃってて、
おにぎり半分とスニッカーズでもうひと山~!

しかーーーーし、
山頂手前の担ぎ区間、
き・つ・す・ぎ!!!!!!!
後からハイカーさんの声が聞こえ始めてたのもあって、
ペースは落とせないし、
むしろ死神さんはペースアップしてるし。。。

ということで、登りは根性と気合で!!

でもね、でもね、でもね、

今回、下りがね・・・。

本当に頭がおかしくなるくらい楽しかった!!!
ガタガタもドロップもピョンピョン行けたし、
コーナーリングもノープロブレム
ブーンって行くところは速度も落とさないで、
ブーンって行けたしね!
死神ラインを忠実に守りました。
もう途中で楽しくて楽しくて「たのし~~~~~~」って
声が出たw

あとね、あとね、
変な藪の中も歩いたよw
チャリを担いで。

道が無くって、超楽しかった。
そう、超~~~楽しかった!!!!!

    awesome! (you should get clipless, your riding will be so much more smoother and powerful… I guarantee it!)
    Sounds like such a great ride though!
