Ride log: Beginners' ride, Firday May 16th 2008

Riders (left to right): A. Ali, A. El Haddad, Hani Morsi, M. Zaree, Laith, Ayman, Doaa, Ehab, M. Hanafi, Husam (not shown are Husam who was behind the camera, May and Karim who left early)

Ride description: We rode the main trail for an easy 6km in and back. A short beginner skills workshop was held and everyone introduced to trail riding basics.

Problems: None other than a semi-flat tire and loose handlebar on May’s bike, which were taken care of swiftly. “Someone” who shall not be herein named went off trail and demonstrated what not to do when you have weak brakes :)…thankfully, the injuries were minor (gat saleema).

Summary: Excellent beginner ride, good turnout, good weather and great company! What more could you ask for?! Another ride of course!
