Not everything is so “heavy”. In fact one of the main edicts of the club is “FUN”. I think that was on the top of all our lists when we started to ride mountain bikes. It was also on the top of the list when we started the SMBC.
I remember my first days aboard a hard tail aluminum Trek in the dried out Salt River riding over river rocks amazed at what that little granny gear could get you over. Might sounds lame by today’s standards but it was “FUN” then. That day started a series of rides that would take me all over the Southwest and as far north as Glacier National Park for mountain bike adventures. This video from some great California riders, I think captures that “FUN” that we all seek on our rides. It was sent back to us as a token of their thanks for having a great time in Sedona. Enjoy….
