Shredding the Guatemala Gnar

image1Today was a blast. I got to go biking, which is one of my favorite things to do. We had two groups that went biking–a road biking group and a mountain biking group. I was in the mountain biking group, and I thought that it was one of the hardest trails I’ve ever ridden. On a few parts, we had to stop and walk down some things because we weren’t sure the bikes could handle it. They were very different from the bikes we were used to back at school. At another time, we were riding though a town that was so tight we almost couldn’t make some turns. The streets must have only been about 3 feet long. One part that was exciting to me was a spot on the side of a road with a lip that looked perfect to jump. Then, we realized that if you jumped, you would land in the trees. We were so grateful for our awesome guides. They were enthusiastic about what they were doing, and they knew the trails really well. We also came across some interesting people who were really fun to talk to because they loved sharing things about themselves. Overall, that was some of the best biking I have ever done, and I would love to come back with a better bike and try again.
