True Beginner Tackles Starr Pass

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

 

I had the pleasure of taking Dale out on a guided bike ride the other day. He is what we call a true beginner where he has never been mountain biking on a trail before. The Starr Pass/Tucson Mountain Park (TMP) area is an intermediate trail system so sometimes the start can freak a true beginner out as they are expecting nice and smooth trails. Ha not here in TMP. He is an avid surfer though which helped him with balance and it didn’t take long before he was riding even the toughest parts many beginners walk. Impressive! Great job out there, Dale! Come visit us again!
