This was my 4th time riding the McKenzie River Trail. Bike Magazine says It's the #1 trail in America. They may be right. It has everything. Flowing single track, Rooty sections, Rocky lava sections, climb's and descents,, and distance. That's what makes a good trail. Right? So Eric from across the grass wanted to ride this and set up a camping trip for some of his friends and family and I was able to force my way in for the ride. I brought Son #2 and Jeremy. The ride started off with dusty single track with a few climb overs. Tree's ya know. Jamie and Graem were ripping so I figured that would be the last I would see of them for the day but they were always waiting at the end of a good descent. Eric did a fancy trick straight to his shoulder but only Louis saw it. It sounded quite exciting. Eric's broother's shifter fell apart and that was the one mech issue of the day. Apart from my creaking bottom bracket.

The ride was a blast and it was a good group. I can't wait to get back down there and ride that trail again.
