Today I decided to ride the "Kill me Thrill me" Trail, I drove to the trail head as I was tired after riding comfortably numb the previous day.

There was a series of granite slabs and boulders where the trail came out under the power lines. The very steep granite slopes were a bit too much for me, as I was not used to riding down such steep slabs and did not have the technique for it. But man handling my down the slopes in slippery sidi shoes was probably harder than riding down them !!

Occasionally there were nice smooth sections of trail along the power line section of the trail.

kill me Thrill me was a pretty tough ride, and unless I get to practice my granite slab down hill riding skills I wouldn't do it again, as at times the trail was too much for a xc rider like me.

I headed back to the Condo after this ride and had lunch, I then decided to go and ride over at the Lost Lake trails as I wanted to ride some good old XC trails which I would be able to ride without worrying about breaking a leg.

I really enjoyed riding the Lost Lake trails, and had much more fun riding there than on Kill me Thrill me. I used the Hot tub and then headed out to a Nester Supermarket and bought some food for my evening meal. Which I then cooked and watched some films on the Plasma TV.
