Headed out to Trout Pond area for a wknd of camping, bikes, and friends. Drove with Dee and met up with Russ, Barry, Paul. Climbed straight up from the campground for a mile. Along the ridge to a road and back down. Then fantastic rocky sections all the way to Trout Pond and around to the road back to the campground. Maiden voyage for the dropper, and I love it so far. Got the lever set up in the cockpit in a good spot that works well with my remote lockout. Also first ride for a new pair of carbon Shimano shoes, and I think they're my favorite shoe to date (not for AR).
