A co-worker of mine lives near SoMo and is interested in mountain biking. She's real 'green' to the sport but hears me rave and is peripherally interested in the sport now. I want to know what trails in and around SoMo she should try first, as I don't want her to get overwhelmed, hurt, or discouraged. Furthermore, can anyone recommend a good lbs around that area that she can go to? Maybe give some suggestions too about a decent starter woman's MTB in the $1000 - $2000 range? Thanks.
