15+ years but my skills are rusty. I am very strong, though.
Avoid going over your handlebars at all costs! Don't ride on top of anyone's back tire. Learn how to use your brakes. Ride with people who are more skilled than you. Best way to improve. Have fun and take some time to take in the view. Expect bruising and bleeding. It happens. Remember it's mountain biking and it's supposed to be challenging! Keep riding and keep learning.
Mission Trails, Penasquitos, Daley Ranch, Cuyamaca, Laguna, Anza Borrego Desert, Colorado, Utah, anywhere there are trails to be ridden and people with whom to ride.
I love mountain biking and need to do lots more of it!
