May 24, 2013
I was commuting and touring on road bikes before there were mountain bikes. I bought a vintage 26" hardtail v-brake MTB in November 2012 and went on my first single track ride (a night ride at Fort Ord) in April 2013. Since June 2013 I've been going on beginner and advanced-beginner rides with SJMTB.
My climbing strength comes from weekly rides in Nisene, riding my cyclocross bike up the Aptos Creek Fire Road to Sand Point. So far on my beginner MTB rides I've been in De Laveaga Park, Pogonip/UCSC/Wilder Ranch, and Santa Teresa.
Hi, I'm Alex. I'm here to ride with great people and become a better rider.
