What can SBMB Group do to help make your rides more enjoyable?

Just looking to be in the know about rides in case a weekend opens up in my schedule.

When you join, could you post your picture, so we all know who you are.

My profile pic is of me doing my first decent up to rear on my trials bike. That was back in 2011 I think.

To help us better judge your skill level, what local places/trails have you ridden?

I've ridden Tamarancho, Skeggs, Waterdog, Big Basin, Joaquin Miller, Fremont Older, Montebello, Arastradero, China Camp, Mission Peaks (while towing a toddler), Northstar (DH), Mr. Toad's (Tahoe), and various dirt jump parks. I'm technically proficient for pretty much all Bay area trails, except maybe Pacifica (which I haven't tried). I'm not fast, but will likely sit and spin all day. I like to play with whatever trail features I can find which usually constitute the majority of my calories burned. I'm willing to try just about anything on the trail that doesn't involve drops more than two feet (3 if armored and pushing it). I ride trials once a week and MTB usually with my kids once or twice a month. To make up for a lack of saddle time, I commute a dozen or two miles a week maximizing the fun with whatever I can find along the way. I also ride the San Jose ride bike party religiously once a month and spend all the regroup time goofing off (working on skills).

Introduction

Father of two. Enginerd. Started MTB for fun in 1990, took 12-year hiatus in 98. Started riding observed trials in 2009 which got me back on mtb ever since. Got kids into MTB recently. Like to be in the know on rare available weekends.
