LOL! This made my Monday! Lots of love and respect for my fellow lady shredders!
Frankly, I'm not surprised Peloton is so profitable. They've taken an old fashioned stationary bike and revolutionized the way it's used with modern technology, the internet and social networking. In comparison, it's way slower to improve/change anything (hard goods-wise) in the bike industry compared to anything digital. Instead of having the profit margin for fancy…

Ha! Old or not, if you're out there riding 1-10x a week then you're an athlete IMO so you should treat your body like you're an athlete - stretch and take care...

I have had similar heel pain before, not necessarily from riding, but it is usually related to tight calf muscles. Over time your calves can get tight from jumping, even just walking,...

Great stories! So many health benefits from mountain biking - physical and mental - and way more fun than the gym! Glad these riders were able to stick with it and make some amazing changes!
Cool! This is a great start for anyone looking to add strength training, you hit all the essential movements and you don't really need a gym membership just a few weights maybe. I'd add a few rounds of 30-60 second planks (or variations) at the end for a core finisher!

oldmtbr, I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure the pain is still very fresh so I am glad mountain biking gives you a little serenity. Sending you a little...
Awesome! I used to run a lot and it has certainly taken it's toll, definitely prefer mountain biking. thankful for suspension :)
Amazing! I was too stubborn to do clinics when I started and learned most this the hard way. Love hearing how mountain bike is growing in your community! It's no surprise VT is becoming a top mountain bike destination like Moab, Park City, Bentonville, etc.
Congratulations for being a man and having a complete lack of empathy for the female community. We don't live in a bubble, quite the opposite, Atlanta is diverse on its own but the women I'm surrounded by own their own businesses, hustle at low-paying jobs, hold government positions, serve the refugee community and are (gasp!)…

Thanks Matt! I was surprised to hear her strategy, always so much to learn from different athletes. And Roam was a cool place to talk to Chloe and get to know her as a real down-to-earth person.

I had the pleasure of riding with some of these rad ladies in Sedona and we had a blast! They truly put having fun first when it comes to mountain biking, would love to do the Tiger Mountain race!
Good to know, Alvin!  I have yet to ride at Alafia, this could be a good reason to go!
