The Skyline Trail on Badger Mountain is a great place to ride your mountain bike! I took a ride today and, it was a little chilly but I got a great workout! On my way back down, I strapped my GoPro camera on my helmet and recorded this video. Enjoy!
Since we moved a bit farther from work, I wondered how it might affect my bicycle riding. It has turned out to be a great ride and a chance to improve my fitness in an all-around way. My round-trip distance is about 15 miles. My ride to work takes me about 6.5 miles and I […]
