Started riding an old Huffy fat tire beach cruiser when I had a paper route way back when. Did the road bike thing for a while then purchased a Specialized A1 Comp (first FSR frame design) back in 1993/94. Traded up finally to a 2011 Specialized Camber Elite in late 2010 and gave my A1 to a newbie to the sport of mountain biking. I'm a mid to lower intermediate rider that doesn't mind the occasional ledge or rock climb. Barton Creek Greenbelt, Reimers Ranch, Walnut Creek and Revielle Peak are some places I've ridden so far. Spend a lot of time after work on the Brushy Creek trail since I'm so close. *Yes not fully mountain biking there. :) .. Enjoy learning new trails and don't mind a few rock gardens. Slower pace (slow and steady) is my riding style though a good flat flowing track or a good downhill and I'm off the brakes as much as possible. :)
Hi my name is Jay. I moved to Austin July of 2011 from Northern California. Learned to ride a mountain bike on the slopes of Northstar Lake Tahoe 20+ years ago. I'm also a member of the Austin Ridge Riders and have enjoyed learning the trails here.
