About Me

I started riding at age 50 through the prompting of my sons. Now I am totally addicted and only wish I would have started earlier in life. Having lived in Mongolia for over 20 years, my favorite riding experience is exploring the many mountains of the country for new trails.

Also, I wanted to say that this was a great survey question imo. Really liked the personal nature of the question. I would love to see Singletracks do more stories/articles about the personal experience of riding as was the case a few years ago, rather than emphasizing products and professional riders/races and the likes. Maybe…

Loved the comments. Great stories everyone. My first ride was in the mountains of Mongolia. We rented some crappy hardtails and did a brutal two mile climb (some hike-a-bike) on a pristine trail, followed by a four mile downhill (part of which was off trail all together and included one endo for me), followed by…

I agree on tubeless Mike. I personally have had maybe one flat since I went tubeless four years ago.  What's not to love about that.  And with the new chemical reacting plugs...

I concur about the Front Range.  Most days there is good riding in November from Fort Collins down to Canyon City/Pueblo.  Further into the state, Buffalo Creek, Salida, and Fruita are all...

This is a ridiculously beautiful ride, climbing from about 9950' on the south end and 9500' on the north, up...

So great to hear from you Greg and hear that you finally fulfilled Outside 365 ... and more! Very cool. Life changing I'm sure. All the best to you and yours.
Washed my gloves tonight after answering this survey. =)

There is nothing more convenient than a SteriPen in areas with clear sources of water, which is where I almost exclusively ride and hike. The combination of the MSR Trailshot and a SteriPen is hard to beat as one's long-term solutions for all conditions. Use both in the worst of situations or carry only the…
