    Well I thought I'd better..

    Where you live?
    Albany Western Australia
    How often do you ride?
    At the moment four times a week leading up to my first MTB race in Dwellingup, this could either be a really good or bad idea.
    Style of riding?
    XC with a bit of variety just to scare myself
    occupation?
    Teacher, when they listen, Entertainer when they don't
    bike you own?
    Cannondale Rush
    bike you aspire to own?
    Kind of happy with the Rush ATM but an Orbea Occham or an Ibex, perhaps a Yeti... Kind of toying with getting a roadie for fitness but then perhaps something a little more downhill oriented would also be a good addition. Maybe just one of each eh?
    fave trail?
    Well, small town. We do have an amazing new downhill track, but when it comes to xc tails there are some pretty odd attitudes out there so I guess I can't say.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Been around a bit, probably could live in Calgary or Seattle, or Chamonix, but honestly cities don't do it for me.
    other sports?
    Breath hold spearfishing. Kill it eat it.

    I'm a ring in here, guys, my hubby is the 'real' MTBer but I am starting to learn and getting over my fear of the bike on dirt. I love watching him race, supporting him and meeting other riders and their families and maybe one day I will give it a go..

    How often do you ride? Once or twice a week recently, only started after a 18 month break off any bike.

    Occupation? Energy Data Analyst & Mum

    Bike you own? Avanti Montari

    Bike you aspire to own? One day I might outgrow the Avanti but that won't be for ages yet!

    Fave trail? First and only real MTB ride has been at Lysterfield.

    Fave city... why? (controversial!) Melbourne, although I avoid the 'city' where I can

    Other sports? Not much at the moment, too busy. In a past life - Horse riding & rallying (Hi Chris!)
