I also accomplished two goals!
« on: May 16, 2008, 03:24:12 PM »
Mine are probally not a big deal but either way these 2 obstacles have always caused me to take the walk of shame, but not today. I made it over the big log after the hairpin turn on the buzzards bay loop of northcreek ( not a big deal), and I was able to successfully fight my way up the root wall of gator back ! ( bigger deal )
My stamina still needs some work but I definitely feel my technique and ability to navigate tricky obstacles have greatly improved.

Nice going!  I remember bailing out on that log over on North Creek the first time I came upon it, but have cleared it ever since - it is just really a confidence and momentum thing.

Agreed, I just keep my speed up on the approach and then pop the front tire up to the top and let the back trail over it. I have been getting better at it over time but usually stall out halfway over it, and it's a tricky place to un-clip and bail out.
