Mountain Biking on Lake Mountain

On Friday, I took the two older boys to Lake mountain, together with Tony and Al, for some mountain biking.  We had been to Lake mountain for skiing a couple of times, and I thought the ski paths might make good mountain biking trails.  Well, we weren’t disappointed, but the ride was much much tougher [...]
