Over the years I've introduction a bunch of friends to trail riding. I always bring them to my old hometown trail which has a nice mix to introduce them to the fun world of trail riding. The last month one of the younger kids at church has been asking to go on a ride with me. He sees me leave every Sunday for a road bike ride after service. He really wanted to go for a road bike ride but playing with the steel bulls isn't always the best idea. So, I talked to him and told him a trail ride would be best and besides it will help improve his bike handling skills. Once that was agreed on, we set a date. Today Nate got his first taste of the trails (tad over 9 miles) and had a blast so maybe a future trail rider has been born. I did make a few adjustments to his bike once we got back to his house.
