Can you free-ride uphill? Man this is getting way to complicated! I'm thinking that you might have to walk uphill in-order to be "free-of-the-ride" so to speak. What about girls? Are they allowed to participate?

If you don't get it, maybe you're not drinking enough Mountain Dew! :lol:
Girls must be allowed to participate since the magazine ads seem to feature them a lot! :D
As far as I can tell, 'Freeride' is just a marketing buzzword! People felt free on bikes long before before Freeride bikes came out.

I think the idea is all about budget downhilling..... With granny gears on a dh rig you can ride up, htus avoiding charge for the skilift. this makes it indeed a free-ride....
I don't understand what is this thread about.

freeriding just means riding on alll types of terrain, up or down hills, urban riding , whatever. Its riding without boundries....finding new lines and traversing obsacles. its whatever you make of it.:beer:
