Last week, I realized that my summer of learning to downhill in the Steamboat Bike Park was nearing its end, and I hadn't even gotten off the green trails. (Using the words "summer" and "end" in the same sentence causes me more anxiety than any downhill adventure.) I was lamenting my lack of progress to a friend, who told me to get on a blue right away.

She said the blue Rustler Ridge trail isn't that difficult and is way more fun than the green Tenderfoot trail I had been riding.
