Welcome! Introduce yourself!

I'm old. My bike is big and heavy but still cooler than me. I like uphills more than downhills. I usually ride a road bike (aaggghhh the horror!). But the mountain bike and I still like to get dirty sometimes.

What pace do you like to ride? Beginner (we all started somewhere), casual (enjoying the scenery), moderate (working hard with the rest of the pack), or super fast (shiny blur zinging by)?

My lungs, heart and legs are moderate. My skills are way out of practice. I'm a chickensh*t on downhills since taking a nice flight over a creek several years back. Riding with other people is the best way to get back in the swing and learn.

What is your weapon of choice? (no bike snobbery here, just sharing the love)

Charge Cooker Maxi fatty.

What is your favorite local trail? Why?

Reston trails (Twin Branches, Lake Fairfax, etc.). It's a 8 minute ride from my front door to the trail.

How long have you been playing in the dirt?

Off and on since 1998.

Introduction

Howdy. Just looking for folks to ride with that will push me a bit. That, and the group name says "beer".
