Another Race. This time it was the 4th race (Belleayre) in the NYS Mountain Bike Series hosted by Overlook Mountain BIkes.
The course: Take a lot of climbing then some really cool single track and then downhill then some more climbing then some more really cool single track and downhill and then more climbing. and what you have is lap 1. Repeat 3 times and you have a race. Do this on a rigid single speed and you have a recipe for a good day.
I honestly can’t tell you why – but I love my single speed. I think it’s the purity of the bike. No choices. Either you’re seated, staring, walking or not moving at all. It’s all about you and the trail. Sweet.
