Greetings! My name is Mel , I'm in my late 40's and I reside in Sparta.
I started mountain biking in the late 90's, put it on the back-burner for a few years due to the demands of other hobbies (kayaking), but have gotten back into it this past year with the purchase of a (significantly upgraded) GF X-Caliber 29'er. My 29'er has given me my mountain biking "mojo" back and I'm constantly surprised what this bike will let me conquer compared to my old bike.
Weldon Brook WMA is just a few miles from my house, so I can ride those trails and then hook up with the Mahlon Dickerson trail system. Kittatiny Valley is another favorite spot.
I also enjoy road riding to build endurance and am using a modified GF Kaitai 29'er with a White Bros. rigid carbon fork and slicks as my road bike. Supple!
When the weather permits, I'm looking forward to doing some night biking. I've invested in some Dinotte and Cateye LED lights and am anxious to try them out on the trails.
