It was raining, and it was cold, but it didn't matter. We were picked up at the hotel and driven a few minutes down the road. We were given all the gear we needed to ride, pants, jackets, boots, gloves, helmets. Dallas gave us the safety speech, a few cautionary tales and plenty of humour. We had no experience, but they were pretty easy to ride. Plenty of bumps and puddles in the road to make it fun, but not too scary for novices. It really was exhilarating.
