    You should come over to WV for the 2005 Slatyfork Shuffle. The riding is fantastic, the people are a hoot, and the moonshine whisky will make you forget anything else.

    Howyeh Davis. I'd heartily recommend a trip for anyone on here. Aer (Cunny) Lingus are flying out of BWI into Shannon, and great deals can be had. Once there, staying in B&Bs is the only way to go. Much better than the hotels, cheaper too, and you get a savage feed of food in the morning - just right for mopping up the alcohol from the night before. Alright, my work for the Irish tourism board is over now.

    As to the invite, thanks a million, I might take you up on that, depending on when it goes down. As I mentioned, I'm a total newbie though, so hopefully by the time it swings around I'd be able to keep up with all ye mad sorts. I'd avoid that corn stuff though - whiskey of any sort makes me all sorts of violent! And I'm like the Hulk - you wouldn't like me when I'm angry...

    (Well, like the Hulk, if the Hulk was short, pale, had a shaved head, was a bit overweight, and not really that muscular.)

    Hey Gaz. Welcome.

    I'm not sure if you want to be taken under the wing of some of us in the MORE group. We tend not to bathe that often and our underwings can be a source of infectious disease.

    That said, it would be great to have you join in on some of our rides. This time of year is a little tough because the trails that are great for beginners are the same ones that get really muddy when wet. Conversely the trails that are rocky and in good shape to ride at this time of year are the ones that most folks just starting out ought not to be riding yet.

    As the trails either dry out or freeze solid, you'll see more rides oriented towards beginners on easier trails in the area.

    There are also a few of us that teach introductory clinics for new mountain bikers. My schedule was too unpredictable this last year for me to teach any of them, but my buddies Tom and Scott did get out and teach many groups this year. The MORE site will have info on that as we get closer to spring.

    Again, welcome. We look forward to seeing you on the trails.

    Finally nailed down the new bike. 04 Marin Rift Zone frame, Rock Shox Psylo, Full XT drivetrain and crankset, and lots of WTB goodies. Custom built by the nice chaps at WTB in San Francisco. (So now you sort of get a photo.)

    Trails most likely to see me: Not many so far, just starting. W&OD, Burke Lake, that's 'bout it for now.
    Other people from this board I ride with regularly (> 2X/month): Nobody yet. WHAT PART OF JUST STARTING DID YE NOT UNDERSTAND?!?!
    Pic: You must be joking!!

    Folks - I'm a total newbie to the sport, but am discovering that I love it. Would love to come across a group willing to take me under their wings and show me the ropes. In exchange, I can offer hours of witty banter, a charming accent that's fantastic for picking up women (and the ability to use it for pure evil, mwahaha) and the guy in the group who'll make you feel better about yourself no matter what your skill level is ('cause you'll still be better'n me!)

    Does anyone read this thread anymore?

    Late's almost as bad as never.

    Name: Kevin
    Live: Washington, DC
    Rides: A black full rigid. No-name AL frame with a big ol' Surly fork. Has more gears than I know how to use.
    Trails I ride: Almost everything at least once. I keep going back to Watershed, Seneca, Black Hill, Fairland, Schaeffer.
    Other People From This Board I Ride With Regularly: None, but I know I've ridden with drevil a couple times on group rides. I only know that because of his bikes, though. I've ridden with TryAndStopMe once, too. Who knows who else I've seen on the trails.
    Pic: The only carnage from my California vacation last summer, I managed to crash going uphill. The only riding photo that exists of me features my wrong end, which most people see only briefly before passing me.

    Nice blog. I'll try to keep up. I remember that ride more because I was sick than anything else. I've never felt that gassed on that climb. I tried it again a couple weeks ago on a MORE ride, and was too weak to do it after 3 weeks off the bike.
