My wife grew up in Manchester, and her brothers used to ride dirt bikes in Case. I would like to check it out sometime. I live near the shore, so ride Cockaponset in Chester, mostly. I would love to have a fast trail like Gatorback here! That does look like fun!

I started out on a road bike but then I discovered mountain biking, which I think is a lot more fun. I still ride the road bike on occasion, but only to work on my endurance and pedaling technique.

A friend want's me to do with him before I turn 50. I'm 44 now.

Trip of a lifetime, might hurt a bit though.

All are welcome here. My observation wasn't pointed in your direction anyhow.

Just a bit?

100 peaks? 10 straight days in the saddle? 120mi day? 13,000' of climbing each day?

I'm talking New England here, too.... think of Colorado/Utah/BC.....
Utah. Moab, Utah. So freakin' cool and different....and scary to think back on what I've ridden out there.

I'm still more scared on the side of a busy road though. That's dangerous.

I know, he's serious too. I puked in my mouth and passed out with just the thought of it.

Looks like I need to get training, I have six years to prepare.

Been to Moab, wasn't on a MTB at that point, unfortunately. I'll be back with the reign eventually. Those trails made me drool..

Yak, if it was me that bunched your panties, my bad. I actually follow this thread pretty closely, and wasn't looking to start a big hubbub (not that it was)

Funny how what we like varies so much.

It is ALL good!

'One man's meat is another man's poison,' as the saying goes.

This is the kind of riding I love: fast and flowing with lots of elevation changes, but not the kind that leave you exhausted.
