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/from work five days a week, 52 weeks a year (minus vacations, of course).
Technical! Because then you maximise the fast and flowy when you hit it.
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.
Dixon's in Park Slope. I bring them the part, they hook it up.
2013 Yeti SB66-C. Six inches of travel and it climbs like a hard tail. Magical.
I love challenging single track, speed, and mud. I hope to meet some of you on the trails!
Fairly organized for a group of random people who meet on the Internet. A really fun bunch of people that like getting out, sweating, and enjoying themselves.
