I've been out ont he trails maybe 6 timeds or so. Mostly just for 90 minutes and what not. I'm a pretty avid crit racer and decided to start mountain biking to change it up a bit. Needless to say, I've been having a good time. Today, a few guys took me out. It was my first time clipless in the mountains. Learned a lot about descending (I go up well from my crit fitness), trusting the bike, and riding in mud. Nothing to brag about but it was super fun and a nice change from the normal 50 mile Sunday ride to Starbucks and back.

I'm on the left. You can see the snowy mountains in the back. Never guess it's So Cal!


Flat repair on a hill


That's me in back. The guys I rode with spent a lot of time waiting for me. But, I'll get there.

Congratulations! You’re hooked now! I was a rabid roadie from 1988 until 2009 (although I was a mountain biker from 1982 to 1988), and early last year I sort of jumped back on in to the mountain biking lifestyle, riding trails and having a blast. I ended up selling my road bike even!!! Don’t get me wrong, riding hecka fast and sprinting up paved roads is a blast on a road bike, but there is this whole sense of being a little kid again when riding a mountain bike.
