Howdy all, thanks for having me, I am a long time rider who is a little tired of seeing all of our local trails empty. I love to ride here in Taos, NM. so come on up and I will show you around. Other than that, whats up all?? Happy summer and nice riding weather.

Hello taos biker, that's a generous offer, and one day I may very well show up on your doorstep :D .
Do you do mostly MTB, or road? Or both? BMX?
What kind of bikes?
Welcome to BF!

Hello and welcome Taos biker.
Careful what you wish for, I may take you up on that some time. I've only been to Taos once, but I'll be back some day. I love New Mexico. Such a cool place.
Isn't Taos in the Sandia's? Purty place.:)

Taos is in the Rockies, a branch called the Sangre de Cristos. The mountains tend to turn red during sunsets and that is how they got the name. I ride MTB mostly. An older Raleigh M60 hard tail that I have done a lot of work to and still really like. I tend to ride fairly aggresivley and enjoy singletrack the most. I get out on the road bike (Specialized Transition Comp) now and then as well, but mostly just for transportation and the odd triathlon, but I am getting a little old for those.(10 miles into town) straight down hill, but then of course there is the climb back home. I like to work on the bikes as well, I have two little kids that ride on the local race team so I get a lot of chances to play mechanic, thanks to a great LBS that readily hands out advice and an odd tool. Thanks for responding.

OH is nice too. I was just in upstate NY and got some riding in. I liked the dampness, so different from here. I found the riding very challenging with all the tree roots exposed and everything so slick all the time. How does a guy from NM end up in Wussyville, OH The soccer team will love hearing that name. I would have a hard time leaving the mountains and the lack of sun back there for too long.

The dampness is the one thing I will miss when I move to either there or AZ. Drove my sinuses nuts, especially when I first got there.
But like you said, the mountains and the sun are soooo nice. That and the factor of jobs, thats why I'm headed that way fairly soon.
