The Shed

Rode mountain bikes up in Frederick at Gambrill / The Watershed. I rarely ride up there – the last time was 2 years ago before the SM100 – but the terrain is similar to the 100 and makes for good prep in terms of endurance and technical skills. Matt, Eric, and I spent about 3 hours riding some great trails and easily some of the most technical terrain on the east coast (if not the country). I’m looking forward to riding up there more this fall and winter.

About 2/3 of the way into the ride though we each nearly pissed ourselves when a Timber Rattlesnake took up residence in the trail and protested vigorously to our disturbing him/her. Luckily we were making a left away from it so no hemotoxins were exchanged.
