I finally did it.
Got my wife out on the trail this weekend.
First time since college...gulp...nearly 14 years ago.
She's only truly mountain biked maybe 3 or 4 times.
So for all intents and purposes, this was really like a first ride.
And she's damn good too.
I really believe that she's got some serious potential to go far on the bike if she wants it.
She's strong...works out nearly every day.
She cleaned just about everything the trail threw at her.
She rolled over logs like they were nothing.
I couldn't believe it actually.
Showed much poise and balance.
Very light on the bike.
Learned the attack position...downhill stance with weight over the rear wheel.
Rarely needed to take a break...even after walking a short stretch up a steep hill...
She'd get to the top...take a gulp of water and say 'let's go.'
Shit she's hot.
A regular milf, if I do say so myself.
Well...from your perspective, since I already do that...but I digress.
Said she may try to hook up on some beginner rides with the other 'girls' in the area.
That would take things to a new level.
Means that she would need to get more comfortable doing things with the bike on her own.
Load bike into car...check tire pressure...reset the chain when it falls off...you know...stuff like that.
All stuff that she currently takes for granted that I will do.
The best part was that we didn't argue at all.
Well, there was that scuffle in the parking lot as she changed into her bike shorts.
Had to wrestle that thong away from her as she was convinced I had ulterior motives for telling her that you do not wear underwear with padded bike shorts.
Says she wants to 'go clipless.'
A couple more rides and she'll be ready.
She does seem to be getting a bit cocky though.
When we arrived home and I was lifting her bike off of the roof rack she said, "are my tires flat? I rode pretty hard today."
Ok, baby, you're not that good. Yet.
Don't worry...she wore a helmet on our ride. These photos are from a staged photo shoot we did in the early spring - I forgot the camera. Flirtees sent K-girl the Dirt Flirt t-shirt to try and we had one of our friends, a semi-pro photographer take some shots. Pretty cool stuff (check out more from the shoot)...if you're in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. area and want some quality photos of the family or an event check out James Harrington.
