So I want to tell you about an adventure I went on this weekend with my husband. We had purchased mountain bikes last year and minus riding up and down the Monon Trail, we have not put them through their full glory.
We were going to head down to Brown County to check on the trails but the weather has not cooperated. I hear they are awesome! So this weekend we decided to head up to 96th street to ride the Town Run Trails!
For a first timer I really had no idea what to expect, but I was in for a treat! These trails were great and I highly recommend. There were only a few other riders and it was so peaceful! Thankfully Tony would tell me to pedal hard so I would make it up the hill or brake when it was more necessary. Then I finally started to get the hang of it. I need about 3 more runs and I would have it!
The reason I tell you all this is because we got to a certain point in the trail where you could go to the left and it was a smooth hill down or you were warned by a sign right at the ramp and the sign said “Drop”. I am not sure how big the drop was but it was a doozy!
I actually hammered down on my brakes and stopped, made my decision on how best to proceed and off I went.
Did I go for the more adventurous drop in the trail or did I keep it safe and stay on the left side for a smooth ride down the trail?
As I was reflecting on the ride I kept thinking about this abrupt spot in the trail.
Some people would have just sped through, took the drop, and off they went. Other people would have veered to the left and taken the smooth ride down the hill. I had to stop and really think which option was best for me.
I am not one to take the “easy” path, but I also am realistic with what I am able to do. By this point I was getting more comfortable on the path, but was I ready for the ramp?
When it comes to decisions in life do you blaze ahead no matter what the outcome is?
Do you stay to the left and glide down the hill?
Or do you stop and think about it and then make your decision?
Now these are all loaded questions with so many correct answers. I just wanted to get you thinking today!
We face so many decisions in one day and too many times we just bulldoze through no matter what the outcome may be. Or we keep it safe and glide through life. Or we stop to contemplate and potentially get passed up.
Now I know this was merely my Sunday Fun Day activity and it was a blast, but I could not stop thinking about that ramp. Also I could not stop thinking about the sign being put right at the drop, not before it, but right at the drop.
Just so you know Tony took the ramp and landed it, might have bent his rim, but he took the ramp!
I took the path to the left, smooth and sailed down the hill. I did however, stop, and thought about the ramp…but not yet!
