Biking Eklutna Lakeside Trail

Today's workout was on the Eklutna Lakeside Trail.  I went with the Walkabouts group, Richard, Marti, Lyn, Cary and me.  We biked to the airstrip at the far end of the lake.  About 10 miles each way.  I had forgotten how rough and rocky that trail is.  A true mountain bike trail.  I managed to fall off my bike when I got too close to the edge trying to stop for some bikers coming the other way. But no serious damage to me or the bike.  Today's ride was a good complement to yesterday's Pioneer Ridge hike.  Of course the view and scenery were wonderful as usual, even though the clouds were quickly moving in.  Rain is on the way.
