Hometown: Arlington, VA
May 11, 2012
Advanced I guess ... though that doesn't mean you can't drop me or that I won't be crashing!
I live in Ballston area of Arlington, and I routinely ride throughout NoVA and MD
Boy, it's hard to choose! Umpqua Trail in central Oregon? Down the back side of Haleakala in Maui? Pisgah NF in western NC? Wilder Ranch among the redwoods north of Santa Cruz? Lookout mountain in Chattanooga, TN? Those are my top epics.
I love 'em all, but the newly revamped Fountainhead. Living in Arlington and working in West Bethesda, I've ridden most of the MoCo trails which are great too!
I got my first MTB in 1989, a rigid fork green Fuji which I later upgraded with an elastomer (aka rubber bumper) Manitou 2 front shock! Over the years, my MTB passion has waxed and waned, and I have shifted focus from road to trail and back. I have have been pretty hard core in MTBing since 2007.
Hi! My name is Whit, and I'm a mountain biker! (though I ride road bikes too) I consider myself a XC / Trail rider, who likes enduro races, beer, technical trails and going down hill fast. At same time, I'm cool with mellow, flowy beginner rides!
