Describe your experience with mountain biking.

Got hooked this summer and rode probably 4-5 times per week, bought a 2010 Trek Fuel EX 8. I mainly ride cross country because that's most common in Ventura/LA counties. Went to Mammoth on the last open weekend in 2011 and it was a humbling experience - first time I was exposed to the double black diamonds/MTB parks/advanced downhill terrain. I'm hoping that by the same time next year I'll be comfortable hitting all the park features. For now though, I'm always down for a good uphill climb and fast single track down, hopefully I can work my way up to charging the drops berms and jumps

In what areas would you like to improve?



I will be living in Benicia CA starting Jan 1, 2012. I've been riding for about a year down in SoCal and recently took a job in Norcal. I'm looking forward to meeting riders up here and exploring the Bay Area
