There is a cool 40 mile round trip bike trail just a 30 minute drive from us, so we decided to check it out today! We knew we weren't up for the full 40 mile loop so we planned about a 15 mile ride.
There are two cool old train trestles that you get to cross. This is the Buxton trestle. So pretty!
Almost halfway into our ride we came across this sign. A creek 1/4 off road. We decided to go check it out.
The kids haven't been off-roading too much but they were kind of excited about it.
This road. Right around that corner is a steep, bumpy and muddy downhill with lots of turns. Doug and Evelyn were ahead and I was taking my time bringing up the rear when I heard Matthew screaming. :(
He had a pretty good spill and was on the ground. Thankfully, although he is really scrapped up and will have some good bruises, he is ok.
At that point we knew we just needed to get back to the truck. I am proud of Matthew for getting back on his bike, bleeding and all, and getting back to the truck with a smile.
We will go back and try for a longer ride another day... :)
