About Me

I ride single track to escape the fast pace world. Nothing better than a ride in the woods. I ride mostly in my home state of WV, but retiring in August of 2021 and moving to TN, can't wait to start riding in TN daily

Nothing more rewarding then riding a trail you helped build and maintain.

Great article, only thing I would add is if you are sure of access, addressing a unauthorized user is appropriate. Case in point our local park which is just now installing no ebike signs, had several problems with ebike riders, until people were told that they weren't allowed. In each insudent the ebike user was…

If you are looking for less technical and more flow check out Mountwood Park, outside of Parkersburg WV. This is a county park maintained by RVMBA and we claim 30 + miles...
STC is the new buzz word.
Hopefully this will continue across the US.
 
You are so true on what you said, organizing into a group with the same agenda is a must. Even though the meetings suck at times being committed to what you are trying to accomplish will pay off in the long run.
As I said in the past mountain biking is human power, if you want to take the easy way ride your ebike on motorized trails or pavement. Another example of the softening of America. As far as getting a great workout on a ebike, give me a break. If they pair ebike with real mountain…

commented on Why I Quit Mountain Biking
 
As a kid I rode all the time but like most, bikes were traded in for cars, girls and party life. When I turned 35 I decided it was time again to get on a two wheeler. I haven't turned back since then. I will be 59 years old this year and the mountain bike…
Makes me want to go out and buy a Santa Cruz, I hope this STC opens the eyes of all bike related companies as well as all Mountain Bikers everywhere, get out your check books and give to a group that really supports mountain bikers unlike IMBA.

commented on Podcast: Mountain Bikes in Wilderness
 
For years we've been losing miles and miles of trails, because of Imba's appeasement policy to cave to anti mountain bike groups. It's time mountain bikers every where support a group that stands for real mountain bikers (human power bikers) and aren't afraid to stand up to the establishment. Quit supporting Imba and send your…

commented on 10 Tips for Mountain Biking in the Rain
 
As mentioned above some of us live in areas that normally from Nov-Apr conditions are wet. Some trails in lower areas get very soft and normally should be avoided during raining days, but ridgetops, climbs and side slopes drain very good and are hardened by riding them wet. The only time we avoid riding the…
If you are riding in the dirt, no matter if you are on a 26", 27.5" 29" or fat bike it's all mountain biking. The verity of trails is what keeps it exciting. Oh yea and the only motor is human power, not e-assist.
