I did go. It was fun. The trail was pretty hard for a noob trail rider such as myself. I do regret not trying the big hills, but they had me wetting my pants at the time. I really hate crashing. There was also a stream crossing that really needs a bridge or a log or 15 minutes with a bobcat. I am glad they didn't run the race there on that same route.
Your cycle had a bell on it.
