The Womble Trail is mountain biking at its most thrilling
MOUNT IDA - At some point, for some people, riding the mountain bike paths near home becomes routine. The same turns, ho-hum. The same dips - too easily surmounted.
Finding a starting point is the first challenge of a Womble Trail mountain bike adventure.
The Womble Trail was a little-known and brushy path before 1988, when it was rediscovered by mountain bikers, who undertook a determined cleanup.
I started riding the bus before riding the bus was cool. When gas was still about $2 per gallon.
