What a fantastic day for a mountain bike ride! We had perfect biking weather and a great group of AOC riders for the mountain bike trail ride! Our attendance was perfect - 12 riders, ranging from beginners to advance level. As far as the trails, there were several twists and turns, up and down paths, tree roots, rocks and several obstacles to overcome. Overall, the trails were fun, fast, and challenging! Unfortunately, we did have a few falls and one bike injury which resulted in a trip to the medical clinic. Fortunately and happily, everything turned out okay at the end of the day with a few of us feasting on much deserved Vietnamese soup at a local Vietnamese restaurant picked and chosen by Matt!
Special thanks to Matt, Debra, Chris and the other AOC members for their first aid assistance, skills and fast thinking in handling the unfortunate bike injury during the event. It was like having our own private 'ER team' during the ride!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on future AOC events!
