    People I ride with: None from this board that I know of, but probably passed one of you on the trail. I'm usually with my race buddy- Randy
    About me: I love long marathon rides. Any of you are invited to meet us at Fair Hill's Gallaher Rd. parking lot between 9 and 10 am on Sundays! I race during the season in Beginner Senior II. I first started mountain biking in 1988 when I bombed around on my Ross 10 speed mountain bike. My first REAL Mtn. Bk. was a 1992 Trek 7000. After a long hiatus, I reincarnated the '92 Trek and rebuilt it. Now I ride a 1998 Trek 7000 frame that I built with all new components this year, and what an improvement in geometry! I'm hoping to complete a full season next year and gauge a move to Sport class.

    Here's a pic from the D&Q summer sizzler race this year.

    Man, was I glad to meet them when they moved here this summer. Not only do I now have a REAL bike shop that doesn't involve a two hour round trip, they serve killer coffees to boot. You really should come up for a visit. I'm sure they wouldn't know who the heck "davis" is, but they would know me by my *real* name, Pat. Hope to meet you sometime.

    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!)

    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.

    Peter

    Is it just me, or does everybody see a little red "X" where my photo once was? Any ideas what went wrong and how I can fix it?

    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.)

    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!)

    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.

    Your mom sounds entertaining. An option: find a local MORE group ride. She'd probably be cool with that. She could even drop you at the trail head and meet the ride leader. Wait, if it was Peter, maybe she'd freak after all! ;)

    I've been riding since 1993, always in/around Baltimore and the areas north of it. For 3 years or so I took a break from riding entirely as my crappy cubicle bound tech job sapped my will to live and replaced it with a will to consume fast food. But hark, I'm back, and I'm waiting for my shiny new Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc to show up (should be here in a day or two). I plan to puke a few times and generally get my fat ass back into shape. Hope at some point I'm not too ashamed to come riding with some of you this season.

    Cheers!!

    Pretty good. Was just heading out to do a bit of street freeriding in Towson. Avoiding the cops, priority number one!
  • 06-01-2005
    TheProphet
    Do street ride on your Rockhopper. Are you coming out on Sunday man? Sorry to hear about the mishap at Princeton. The Columbia store is pretty different from the Falls Road store. I think we are a little more laid back. :) Haha.
  • 06-01-2005
    Hot Butter Topping
    Yeah I ride the 'Hopper around on the street but don't do anything silly that I should be doing on a dirt jumping bike. But there's ledges and a few parking-lot step down to grass tranny hits in and around Towson that are fun to ride when I dont' feel like hoofin' it to the woods by myself.

    I was thinking of getting a set of Maxxis Hookworms or Holy Rollers for these street days because I don't like the rolling resistance with knobbies. But either way, I think I just like to practice riding on urban ledges most of the time. Hoping to build the skills so I can start building skinny north shore stuff and riding it clean.

    I dunno about Sunday. A couple of my buddies want to go ride Loch Raven and I'm dying to get back there and take some pics of the more advanced terrain. What time do you all head out? Sunday rides for us usually mean after 12 start because we're super hung over.
  • 06-02-2005
    TheProphet
    Yea true. Are the cops bad in Towson? I want to ride there.

    Go for the Holy Rollers, the Hook Worms are HEAVYYY!.

    Yea Sundays at 8 because we have to get back for work. When ever you can, come on out.
  • 06-02-2005
    Hot Butter Topping
    Towson's not too bad but I've only been up there a couple times to ride lately. I think on a mountain bike, even a play bike like a dirt jumper, you're stealthier as the cops tend to chase after skaters and bmx kids griding up stuff with pegs.

    The only thing that worries me is that they put a police station right around the big courthouse where all the good ledges are.
