First ever trail ride.

Over the years I've introduction a bunch of friends to trail riding. I always bring them to my old hometown trail which has a nice mix to introduce them to the fun world of trail riding. The last month one of the younger kids at church has been asking to go on a ride with me. He sees me leave every Sunday for a road bike ride after service. He really wanted to go for a road bike ride but playing with the steel bulls isn't always the best idea. So, I talked to him and told him a trail ride would be best and besides it will help improve his bike handling skills. Once that was agreed on, we set a date. Today Nate got his first taste of the trails (tad over 9 miles) and had a blast so maybe a future trail rider has been born. I did make a few adjustments to his bike once we got back to his house.

No doubt he'll be forever thankful for the intro to trail riding. Still remember the group that introduced me to trails, even tho it's been decades. Time hasn't erased the memories of those first rides. My wife was along also and turned out to be an excellent rock garden rider. Sure miss those trails (we moved) and the group. Helmet is off to you-hope he enjoys trails as much and continues.

His mom and dad said he couldn't stop talking about how much fun it was, so I'm sure I'll have him out again real soon.
