After Pip and I scouted out the new trail earlier this week, we got some rain and snow. The snow melted right away, and although I wasn’t sure what kind of shape the trail was going to be in from all that precipitation I decided to go anyway. And I’m kind of in love.
For starters, here is how the scooter rides in the car. I just loosen and fold the handlebars down, then pop them up and tighten them before going for a run. Honestly, I pretty much just leave it there all summer since my car is not very passenger friendly anyway.
It was a little bit muddy in some stretches, but not too bad. Just enough to mean I had to kick and run the scooter more than usual and make them work a little harder, but not enough to make it impossible or frustrating for them. When it is dried out, it will be perfection.
As per usual for our weekday-morning forays, there was no one else in sight so we were free to play with the GoPro. (Yea, I forgot to throw my pads in the car, but at least I had my helmet.)
My shoes got a little muddy.
This was a lovely spot to stop for a water/grazing break.
And then back to the car!
I have a few videos to trim up and I will post them later. All in all, this was a good day… we were having so much fun that we went farther than I realized, and now everyone is fast asleep (just another reason to love this sport!).
