My first ride back on a hardtail was after running an ultra the day before and
lets just say it only lasted 5 minutes. I had just picked up the bike and was
riding up Bridle Path and tried to lay down some power to go up and over a
rock. The extra power and lack of traction made my rear wheel spin and my
front end did not lift up at all. The front wheel hit the rock and I made an
awkward front flip / endo and used my face to cushion the blow on the rock and
landed on my quad on another rock. The stress from the day before and the
impact on my leg gave me dead leg (which was agonizing). I couldn't bend my
knee enough to ride for 2 weeks after that, so I think your first ride
actually went pretty smooth. 😀 Since then I've become a big fan, it just took
some getting used to.
