Most people on these boards are really cool and I often see people from my state and local areas invite unknown people to ride with them and show them the local trails. I don't really have anyone to ride with and I always think that I should ask and accept an invitation to ride with people from the boards. I'm shy and nervous about this though and always put it off. I am more of beginner (three months riding) and always think that i'd be sort of baggage on the person i'm riding with. Am I crazy or have most of you had second thoughts about meeting people from the boards. I'd venture to assume that most expericens are good. Do you take invitations when people on the boards offer? Any other opinion of this? Anyone got any bad or funny stories about this?
