Newbie’s first ride

A while ago I mentioned that I built up a “faux” Full Suspension Redline for my buddy Loren. On Sunday after church, Priscilla and I took him to the Fullerton Loop to test out the bike. Back in his younger days, Loren used to be a pretty good BMX racer. So it was no surprise to me that he had excellent bike handling skills. So much so that he was like my shadow when it came to the jumps on the trail. The dude had some grace when taking jumps and he does a little flair kick too!

Here’s Loren coming down the trail.

Then there was I. Yup, that’s me sporting the MtnBikeRiders jersey.

We then headed over to the dirt jumps to see if Loren could do some of his magic. But those jumps were HUGE! Needless to say, we just tooled around the area and took the smaller ones…yah we showed them!

Anyhow, Loren did pretty well considering it was his first ride. Afterward, he said that he’d like to mountain bike on a regular basis!
