Re: Emma Long ride....

Wish I could but I won't be ready with the new to me Husky. I am planning on heading to Hidden Falls on Sunday for a shakedown ride before Big Bend.

At Emma long? It can be intimidating for new riders with the ledges and the stairs steps - there are some pretty tricky spots.
Overall it's not too bad though.
If I had to teach somebody to ride, I would pick some place else.

I would recommend going out with someone who knows the main loop. Most likely you would drop the bike once or twice, stall out a few times, etc.

I was intimidated the first time I went out but I just kept going out by myself and now I'm comfortable out there but I still have sections that I ride like a total newbie hack.
