Yesterday was my first combined bike/hike in a while. I rode my Vado (electric-assist bike) to Harvey Bear bike then hiked uphill and rode back down. I tried some side trails I’ve never been on before which offered pretty smooth off-road surfaces (the Vado is a hybrid, not a mountain bike, with fairly fat tires but no suspension).
I rode out to Harvey bear park mostly standing with no assist which took 45 minutes, then spent about an hour in the park. I used assist to buck a headwind on the way home. Next time I’ll allow more time so I can do more exploring.
