How many years riding experience do you have on a bike (Any type: MTN, Road, BMX, etc.)?


Make and model of your bike?

Specialized Stumpjumper Hardtail

Do you use: 1. Clipless (Snap in shoe/pedal), or 2. Clip on pedals (Toe strap), or 3. Platform (Regular pedals)?

3 Platforms

Do you have any general mountain biking tips?

Do the opposite -- as in when you downhill. Every thought and bone in your body wants to slam on the brakes, but just don't do it--the extra speed you pickup will make it easier to clear most technical challenges.

Where do you usually mountain bike?

Los Penasquitos Canyon, Del Mar Mesa/Tunnels, Rose Canyon, San Clemente Canyon, Nobel Canyon, Bern County, Mammoth Mountain


I love mountain biking and do it for fun, commuting, and community service (volunteer MBAU ranger for Cuyamaca Rancho State Park - Mountain Bike Assistance Unit).

What Phil O. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group of guys. Pace is about right for all--not race pace which I hate.
