Hometown: New York
June 7, 2011
Skill-wise I'm advanced-intermediate. I've been riding XC since my teens and you know what they say about riding a bike - you never forget. As far as cardio, I'm in pretty good shape - I ride 6 miles to work five days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Blue Mountain is a great challenge. If you can keep your bike on the trail there, you should go home happy. Other favorites - Backcountry Excursions and Mount Snow if I can somehow get away for a few days.
2013 Yeti SB66-C. Six inches of travel and it climbs like a hard tail. Magical.
I drive a Camry that can usually take two more people/bikes.
Because of family obligations (young kids at home), I'm usually only interested in day trips in the area.
I'm a long time mountain biker living in Brooklyn. I've been a member of the NYC mountain bike meetup for 2 or 3 years now and recently found out about BKMTB. I'm looking forward to some fun rides!
A really fun bunch of people - always a lot of jokes, help when you need it, and there's always an event around the corner.
