Do you consider yourself a Beginner, Intermediate or an Advanced rider?

‎"Mountain bike creed This is my mountain bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My mountain bike is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My mountain bike, without me, is useless. Without my mountain bike, I am useless. I must ride my mountain bike true. I must ride straighter than anyone who is trying to pass me. I must pass them before they passes me.... My mountain bike is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its shifters and its gears. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my mountain bike clean and ready. We will become part of each other. "

Do you prefer technical riding or fast and flowy?

Any thing will do I just enjoy the experience and being out with others. The challenge is doing something that gets the heart rate above resting...

What is your favorite place to ride in the tri-state area?

Bethpage State park LI Green Belt, Stillwell Blue Mountain, New Paltz Trails Mohunk Lake Minnewaska Hunter Mtn. Lewis Morris, Sprain

What is your favorite bike shop and why?

Sid's 19th street they have become like family to me...

What is your current mountain bike?

1996 GT LTS thermoplastic (carbon fiber mixed with a nylon risen) Spinergy Carbon fiber rims. I guess you could say my bike is on a high fiber diet...
