This ride is at Bear Brook State Park in New Hampshire. They call this “Little Bear”.
It is a super mellow, flowy downhill. It’s not too extreme, but there are some rocks and roots, a little rock jump and other minor obstacles.
I always get scared on downhill and I didn’t think this one was too scary. I still need to get the courage to let gravity take me. Downhill riding is definitely a weakness of mine. I will work on this throughout this summer.
This ride was one of the first in the season, as you can see with the snow in spots. Surprisingly this spring was a dry one so we could ride this state park with no problem!
This ride, being one of the first for me was exhausting! People may say you don’t get as much exercise with an e-bike, but for me it is plenty. I can still ride up the hills with a little assistance (from my pedal assist motor) and still get my heart rate going. I just don’t have to walk the bike. I rarely ever walk the bike, which makes these bikes that much more awesome. It’s all about the ride and if you want a good enduro through ride but you’re not sure if you’re in the best shape, an e-bike is where it’s at.
This ridge ride was thrilling and challenging. I had adrenaline pumping through my system. That may have also been why it felt like a workout. I highly recommend this ride. I’m not even sure if my bike can legally ride here but there are no signs telling me not to. Hopefully that doesn’t make me a bad person, I’m just here to ride and have fun!!
