VIDEO: Mari Beth Stein and her family love to mountain bike.
"I've been mountain biking for probably 20 years," said Stein. "I started mountain biking with my husband when I lived in Colorado and he was very into cycling."
One of her favorite things about living in Boise is having close access to the foothills so she can ride.
"We're blessed to be [living] right at the base of Polecat Gulch," Stein said.
She tries to ride her bike in the Boise foothills as often as she can. One day, the opportunity presented itself after she got off work around noon.
"We hop on the bike and we decided we're gonna do a little bit longer loop, like two and a half hours or so to Seaman's Gulch," Stein said.
Riding on the path before, Stein knew she needed to be fast as she was going downhill on the connector trail from Seaman's to Cartwright Ridge.
