I recently enjoyed a TBT mountain bike experience. I entered this with some trepidation because I have never ridden a mountain bike trail and have not been on a bike in a decade. My worries were immediately silenced when I met our pathfinder, Katherine Pierce. She has a calm, positive demeanor and gave just the right instruction at the right time. The trail had a few challenges, but none that I couldn’t maneuver. It also had wonderful scenery – through quiet trees, to a waterfall, and then to a historic home. And, to top it off, a hawk flew between me and another rider. Then there was the food! Tasty, healthy feast prepared by Barbara Gibson. I highly recommend this excursion if you want to get away from the streets and enjoy a quiet day in nature on a bike.
