About MeStarted riding to lose weight and a high school buddy that had a bike shop invited me on a real mountainbike ride at night. Loaned me a 6v 5watt light and went on a group ride on rocky PA singletracks for my first ride ever. Crashed a few times. I was hooked for life. Had to take a few years off due to family responsibilities and dusted off the old Stumpy last year. Just bought a process 153 and I'm out as often as I can be. Back riding with some of the guys from 20 years ago and a bunch of new friends. There is NOTHING like getting on a bike and climbing a Mountain so you can come back down!
