Why is it that I keep crashing into this tree? Every time I bike on this path I get spooked by this tree to the point where I slow down a lot more than I should and get tangled in that big root crossing the path. The trick is that there is a extremely sharp right turn that hooks around this tree. With the root in the place that it is, coupled with the turn and the fact that no matter which direction you come at this you have a downhill giving you speed followed by an uphill just after the turn.
I also should admit that this is another clipping in situation where I panic because I know I’m going to crash and can’t get unclipped in time to save myself from tipping over. Or… I do unclip and now I’m having trouble staying unclipped while still getting some power to the pedals.
I’ll let you know if I ever do make this successfully.
