    How to find people to ride with

    Ok so im 14 years old and alot of my friends from skool ride too, but none of them ride the same stuff as me. I like to go to north shore and up the mountains around were i live. Also i hope to go down to places by seattle and ride around there. All my friends ride urban and dirtjumps, which i dont like to do very much. How can i find people to ride with that like to ride the same stuff as me???

    thnx

    If you organize a cool group ride, people will come out.

    its nice to have ONE good friend who you normally go with, im 14 too, but just tlak to some other bikers you randomly meet on the trail, for exaple, while my freind was fixing his popped tube, after i made sure he coudl fix it, i was just riding around in circles and ran into a gorup of 3 guys and we got talking now i have their numbers and we hook up to go ridding when ever.

    hang out at bike shops and ask around...second ride the same trails and hook up w/ those type of riders

    It's not that hard..Get a group of people to go riding with you and see how they like it. Hang around bike shops and look for other people in the same riding spots as you. There's also regional forums on mtbr so go there and post a "anyone near ____ out there?" etc..
    I'm not new to this, I'm true to this

    that used to work, but now my friend is being a douche so i dont ride with him anymore. but i have met some people on the trails i ride. most of them r like in there 20's or 30's and my mom would freak if i went with them. However, ironically the guy who sold me his bike (and my mom actually trusts) just called me and wanted to know if i would wanna bike wit him.
