Well today I got 3 new people into mountain biking. First one was my mom, who decided to get a bike today. Next was my dad who bought a brand new trek. Then was my cousin who got a new hardrock sport womens. They all love their bikes and love riding. We went on a nice 4 mile ride today and they all liked it a lot. I also rode with mtbmel today. Here are some pics.

It feels really good to pass on the love of mountain biking to others.

This is why you don't kill a bottle of Jack Daniels the night before, and then eat burger king 5 minutes before the ride....

I like d first pic--it begs a caption--something is def on her mind. lol.
Kudos on promoting the sport-- (and it just occurred to me it would be interesting to learn how the word kudos came about--so I guess it's google time).

Speaking of burgers--I think I've consumed 20 or more in the past 2 weeks--I definately need to thin down from 215 or so---just I have no willpower.

Man, I thought this was going to be a rant about getting injured too much and moving on. Took me a minute to figure out what you meant! Way to go with the fam, and thanks for the puke shot... I'm sure Dad felt alot better afterwards, but I don't feel so good now.

Your dad is definitely a noob. We regularily kill several bottles of taquila before our big Epic the next morning. ....Just kidding. (about him being a noob--we really do kill bottles of taquila before big rides) Thanks for the post...good stuff and good story...hope they keep it up. Tell them they will be hucking 4 footers in no time.

it is the gravel trail at New Hogan Reservoir in Valley Springs, CA. Great perfect ride for the family, and it is a 4 mile there and back, then you can wrap around the road to the other dirt road (doubletrack) for another 1.6 out and back, makes a total of 6 miles of nice mellow riding.

As for the dirt lids, definately need to get them some!
