Rewind to 2020. I had bought my bike two months earlier, and I was honing in on my mountain bike skills. Lost Lad was one of the first black diamond trails that I rode. It included gap jumps, tight corners, and fast trails through a little valley.
Despite a very intense uphill and a gnarly crash straight into a gap jump, I still remember this being a pivotal moment in my mountain bike progression, as it was a great benchmark.
This week, we ventured out to try it again after 2 years of our mountain biking journey.
Join me, Nic, and our friend Marcus Catlett, as we hike-a-bike up some serious steeps before finding ourselves on a neat little path through an overgrown gully. We hit some jumps, including a small tree gap, ride by rock walls, and whiz by the bright green trees.
Your nacforadventurers and finders of the little lad,
AJ and Nic
