Feeling beat up after a couple rough gym sessions but still wanted to do a group ride with awesome people and brand new, beauuutiful tires. Haven’t even worn off the rubber yet....aaaaand I got a flat.
Luckily, 1. These guys are THE BEST and stayed with/checked on/cheered me on
2. I can fix a flat, while smiling, in about 15 minutes because I’m baller <aka I’ve had more experience fixn flats than god ever intended any human to ever have>
PS. if you know anyone at #continentaltyres , tell em they should send me a new tire
Testing out mountain biking seems less scary when you make it a holiday cookie delivery to your favorite park rangers. <and let’s be honest, by mountain biking, I mean questionably operating a mountain bike on a flat gravel surface with a cookie tin under one arm> .

Let me tell you a story, kids. Once upon a time there was a princess. She awoke one fine winter morning and ambled outside with her steaming coffee, assessing the snow’s progress. She instantly busted her face on the black ice coating every surface of the outside world, and immediately gave mad props to the local school system’s wise decision to close school that day. Too unsafe to walk, too unsafe to drive, no one should go anywhere on a slippery day like today!
The princess then promptly decided that hiking was the next logical step.
3 hours later on ice-skinned river trails riotous with birds and icicles and her own thick crunchy snowfilled footprints, she had busted her ass <1 time. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?! you exclaim! Well my friends, the answer is #lasportiva. Who woulda thought. Every princess is just looking for the right slipper.
