I'm just now returning to MTB. Once I joined the military I was always deployed and after I was in college full-time. I finally purchased a bike, Motobecane Fantom 29 X9 hard-tail, and begun riding again this year. I have only ridden Rowlett Creek Preserve and Cleburne State Park. In my younger days I rode down hill in Northern California--Kirkwood mainly. Trying to dial myself into the new bike and get back to an advanced skill level.
