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!

In my previous post I said it may be an 8 part video. Well I over exaggerated and it is now a 6 part series after completing my edits.
This is part 2 of the 6 part adventure in North Conway NH. For some reason on my YouTube channel all the videos uploads are not in order.
Anyway, This video features some smooth mellow riding. Not many hill climbs even though we are in the White Mountain region. I felt very confident while filming this. I had no worries and was feeling very good.
After this video ends, we end up crossing some roads to the next trail. Unfortunately I did not pay much attention to where we were so I can’t name the trails. We didn’t have much of a plan at this point in our ride.
This video is about 5 miles of riding on the flat(er) parts. I mean later on we did climb a mountain so I have to say this is flat compared to what is to come.

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 is only the beginning of what is to come!
