mountain bike riding with my son

I took my 13 year old son out to ride bikes at Haley Farm in Mystic, CT. It's divided from a state park called Bluff Point by train tracks, but connected by a bridge over the tracks. It had rained very hard the night before, so we went over trail that had become streams. We had a great time. We ended up on the beach at one point, and I had to walk my bike because I was riding a hybrid with skinny tires that sank right in. The trails in a Connecticut forest are clear of vegetation but rocks grow in their place. As I was careening down these trails trying to avoid an endo, I thought to myself, this is so much better than a video game. The video below made me think of our ride, but, to be honest, it was not nearly as exciting as this race video via helmet cam.
