I handed the GoPro off to Adam, since I knew I would take it slow and he would be much more interesting.
In the beginning of the video he goes over our adventure briefly. You can read my more detailed posts on in the E-Bike Adventures blog.
This mountain is clearly a hiking trail and going down on a bike was just an intense, rocky, rooty descend.
I walked my bike down a lot of the stuff. I know my limits and got off my bike before gravity made me get off.
This mountain was a little strange and confusing too. There were some little inclines on our descend. At one point I felt lost and I saw Adam looking at the GPS on his phone. He tried to reassure me he wasn’t lost. (Later on he told me he was a little nervous as well)
In the video Adam says how well I was doing. He only thought I was doing well because I wasn’t being vocal about my struggles. I really was struggling very badly. My only thoughts were “I want to go back to the camp.”
At the very end of the video you can see me walking my bike and complaining how tired I was.
Stay tuned for the next post to see us finally journey to the bottom of the mountain!
Here they are, the last two videos of the intense day of biking North Conway!
Let’s start with part 5:
This is a fast downhill ride. Of course Adam is the one wearing the GoPro. (I’m too slow)
Anyway, this ride is the rest of the descend of Black Cap Mountain. This bottom half was much easier to ride. It seemed to smooth out, probably because we are getting lower in elevation. So if you like watching fast downhill mountain biking, this is a good watch!
Here’s part 6:
This video concludes the adventure of Biking North Conway. In the beginning of the video features some fast downhill as we finish the Black Cap Mountain trail. The rest of the video shows some of the mountain bike trails that twist and turn all over the place. These trails are great for riding. They are nice and smooth and much easier than climbing hurricane road, climbing black cap etc. I am not sure what we were thinking.
Adam wants to go back and just focus on the trails that were actually designed for mountain biking. So we shall see!
Unfortunately the GoPro died so we didn’t get to film us riding through town back to the campsite.
I did capture this sweet little view on the way back with my point and shoot. It felt like a treat (even though I didn’t get a great view in the mountains) It was still a great treat!
I will say that once we got back to the campsite, I felt like I was in heaven and that I just conquered the world.
Lucky for me, the campsite was right on a river beach. No one was even on the beach so I had the whole place to myself. I let my skin and bones soak in the sun. I was so sore. This was definitely the craziest ride so far. But this is only our second year with these bikes so here’s to many more!!
We just got the GoPro hero 6, hoping to make little edits of our adventures. We are having some difficulties with the camera though. It freezes up when we try to watch our footage. This is the first day we bought it. It worked great but the second day we had problems so we returned it and traded it in for a new one. Hopefully all is well and we can have some fun with our new camera!!
