Black Mountain

Yesterday morning Andy and I got our free breakfast, then I headed to ride a new spot - Black Mountain.

There are plenty of ways to climb to the summit, but the most direct is a fire road that runs to some sort of cell tower at the peak. The climb is steep, but short. I took a few minutes at the top to relax before riding the singletrack and doubletrack to the trailhead. The ride down was short, but over loose rocks, which slows the pace slightly and makes it seem a bit longer.

After I got back to the house, Scott and I rode down to Balboa in search of more jumps. We found some, but they were small and neglected, so we went back to our original set and sessioned them for a bit.
