    Only a few hours from me. I rode there all the time. Great place!

    On and off. I have a self-built hard-tail 29er that I adore, and try to get out on some trails fairly often. But since COVID struck I’ve hardly used her, although that’s slowly changing as the family start to get involved.

    I ride a lot. Road during the week mainly to be tuned up for mountain biking on the weekends. I’m pretty consistently on my MTB every Saturday and Sunday. AZ weather grants me year round riding. I just have to start early in the summer. My group of riding friends make a trip somewhere every year. Moab is a pretty common destination. We do frequent trips to Sedona too which is amazing riding.

    I've ridden all my life. Since I moved to the middle of nowhere it's mainly road riding, but I enjoy mountain biking too.

    I wish I lived closer to Golden! I’m about 5 hours away but we always rent a giant chalet on the mountain at least twice a summer.

    Try Fernie as well, they have a great mountain for MTB. Make a day trip out of it next time you’re around!

    My son and enjoy it quite a bit. There are some good woods trails near us. 12-15 mile total with smaller loops built in. We both ride Trek Marlin 6’s, so not too costly but better than a lot of bikes. Perfect for the trails we have access to. Great way to keep in shape.

    Love my mountain bike. Tons of challenging trails in Southern Ontario too. Pic of my Kona Honzo when it was brand new - hasn't been as clean since......;)

    Bought a red Univega Alpina Pro, think it was in 87. Cracked the frame jumping a flight of stairs, new frame supplied under warranty took a couple weeks to get shipped to the shop, it was hot pink. Rode it for a couple of years. Had a diamond back after that, and can’t remember all the others.

    Got into road biking after I did a try-a-tri. Fun.

    have a full squish Giant that doesn’t get much use now. Should dust it off again.

    Fun.

    Mine is a 2013 but is still considered “old school” by today’s standards. I just can’t justify spending $6000 plus on a new one because the wheels are slightly bigger.

    Not mountain biking, but still BMX race, dirt jump and ride Rays Mountain Bike Park in Cleveland throughout the winter months.

    www.raysmtb.com If you are within a 5 hour drive, this is worth it.

    Yeah, it is a steel bike. It is a 1991 Rockhopper Comp. Tange tubing. It only weighs 27.5 lbs.

    I have rebuilt it. Only thing stock on that bike other than the frame are the pedals and the seatpost. :)

    Yes, Seth is my sister Sue's son. He has recently become a father.

    Not long before that he'd recovered from a badly broken ankle from a truly freak accident while just getting off his bike, and stepping the wrong way!

    He does all his own video editing, voice over, scripts, etc. He's

    Doing what he does is a really tough row to hoe, and I'm not talking about the riding, building the trails, etc. I am talking about having over a million subscribers, and having to provide them with engaging content, even while laid up in a cast with a badly broken ankle.....

    ......and then the baby needs a diaper change or feeding......

    Here's the link to when he and his buddy Alex were riding, and there was no internet available to search 'how to reset a popped shoulder'......

    $1300 is cheap, I couldn't even find a hard tail I liked for $1600, but they are DH bikes right? So heavy? Not much fun to ride uphill?
