I have loved biking since I was a kid. I started mountain biking when I was in my early 20s.
Santa Cruz Juliana....she's 4 years old. (I know, ancient. Please don't hold it against me.) long story...
Clipless- which I learned on mountain bike trails, btw. Which was a B but I did it, in case you are worried about how tough I am. :)
Never stop on an ascent; brakes are not always your friends; look where you want to go; tread lightly.
I have been on my mountain bike only once in the last four years. (another long story) I'm very excited to be getting back into it and my soul will be very happy! I've not yet mtbiked in San Diego, but my biking adventures have been in Colorado (Fort Collins, Boulder, Keystone, Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs), Moab, Northern CA (Wilder Ranch, Los Gatos, Highway 9, Soquel Demonstration Forest), Tahoe (Toad's Wild Ride comes to mind). I have been very lucky to bike some amazing places- ready for more adventures!
I love trails, but I haven't spent lots of time exploring San Diego on my mountain bike. I am looking forward to learning all the local hot spots and meeting some new riding friends.
