On a sweltering, muggy, but breezy day in June, we gathered at Colonel Ledyard Park for another group ride. This was a fairly popular location for our group rides this summer… and it’s the location for Day 1 of our upcoming fall competition and clinic.

Failing, falling down, going over the bars – these are all part of riding trials. It’s been said that if you’re not failing, you’re not progressing. Some days, you spend a lot more time on the ground than others. Maybe it’s because you’re really pushing yourself, or maybe your head and body are just out of synch. Ever just have one of those days? For Tony, it was definitely one of those days.

Fortunately, we also have days that are just the opposite: where everything seems to ‘click’. I experience both, but definitely prefer the latter kind!
