Viva Las Vegas

Going to Vegas really did me good. By the end of the trip, Mireille was feeling adventurous and wanted to go mountain biking in the Mojave desert.

It sounded like a good idea and check out the picture. Looks like fun...

But what the picture doesn't tell you is that it must have been at least 40 degrees celsius out. And, as you can see, there were no clouds or anything else to provide shade.

Upon closer inspection, that nice winding trail looked like this.

There was a lot of flat ground but also some of this.
However, it didn't take too long before Mireille built up some confidence and rode over the bumps with ease. It was a fantastic workout for me and definitely my most challenging yet.
I wonder where Mireille will take me next.
