This post is a little overdue! Today I wanted to share the details of our mountain biking adventure from a couple of weeks ago.
To celebrate our wedding anniversary, Brian and I have started a little tradition of doing some sort of “adventure.” Last year we went white water rafting and this year we went mountain biking. I love our little tradition 🙂
While Brian and I are both very active and love trying new things, I want to be completely honest in saying that I am very cautious when it comes to trying new things that involve a lot of risk…like skiing or mountain biking.
Because of this, taking a mountain biking lesson was the PERFECT way for us to safely try out a new-to-us sport!
We took our lesson through Denver Adventures, and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try mountain biking for the first time.
Our guide was very knowledgable, he happily answered ALL of my questions (trust me, I ask a TON!), and he made sure Brian and I felt confident and had a great time out on the trail.
Our tour started early at 8am, so we were the first people to head out for the day. We arrived at the headquarters (they offer to pick you up if you are visiting the area and don’t have a car!), loaded the bikes up on the truck and we were off!
It was just myself, Brian and our guide which made me feel so much more at ease. While I was much slower than Brian and our guide, they waited for me at several check points and always made sure I was having fun and that I was comfortable. I absolutely loved it and had a blast 🙂
I really felt like we learned the basics of mountain biking, so if we want to go out on our own or with friends I have a much better understanding of how to be a safe and successful mountain biker.
