Mountain Biking: Blown Shocks on the No Name

Wed, 11 March 2015

Trip Reports

Vertical Climbed: 575 meters (1,887 feet)


An "easy" afternoon ride to try and recover from my bad hip. The descent of the No Name needs a bit of cleaning and is a bit narrow with my wide handlebars. Afterwards I took a nice ride through some woods but didn't find the traverse trail which I must have crossed at some point. My fork "deflated" on the No Name so I had no front suspension for the ride back. I think it is fixed now.
