About Greg Heil

My name is Greg Heil, and I am the Editor in Chief for Singletracks.com. I've been mountain biking seriously since 2005, and I love to travel and ride new trails. My travels have taken me across the United States multiple times. To date (November 2013), I have ridden hundreds of different trails in 18 different states, and am adding more singletrack to my trail resume every year! I enjoy all types of mountain biking, from ultra endurance cross country all the way up to chair lift-accessed downhill runs.

  1. Made my wife watch this with me…

    After the first minute she walked away saying “that’s ridiculous, I don’t do that stuff”.

    So I just turned up the volume.

    Then while she sat in the other room pretending not to be paying attention, I caught her laughing and mumbling to herself after the scene where the guy broke down crying about being hormonal and feeling ” fat and crampy”.

    She KNEW she was pegged.

  2. No Comment…I mean my Girl Friend doesn’t do any of that stuff, except the brake thing. and “don’t wait” but it seems ok when I don’t.

  3. Last summer my wife and I went to Woody’s Mountain Bikes in Helen, GA. Her idea by the way. Last time my wife road a bike was in high school (we have a 16 yr. old) They dropped us off at Unicoi Gap and we road 15 miles of forest service roads back to Helen. Yes not singletrack but she loved it. A year later she is looking to upgrade from a specialized Mika to a Jett 29er and even though slow, enjoys the trails.
