Let me start off by saying I am extremely new to this sport and looking for all you veterans to take me under your wing to show me the ropes. I am in the process of buying my wife and I our first bike. I haven't had a bike since... well its been a long long time.
We wanted to start doing something we could really enjoy together and get out in nature. I do experience the North Georgia mountains quite frequently but its mostly a blur at speed. I ride my motorcyle up there once or twice a month and always seem to notice all the folks up there on there mountain bikes.
As I ride by on the motorcycle sometimes I am thinking these people are amazing! Those hills are huge!!! But it catches my eye everytime. So when my wife suggested mountain biking I was thinking, HELL YEAH!(can I say hell?)
Well now you know I ride motorcycles. I also play highly competitive volleyball and like to frequent the golf course. I am definitely better at the volleyball.
What I do:
I am a project manager for a traffic signal construction company. I won't bore you with the details.
I am really looking forward to chatting with all of you and hopefully get to meet some of you in the near future. Right now I have to find some bikes, so if any of you have any suggestions, please send them my way.
My brother used to have a Gary Fisher a few years back and I really liked it. So for some reason I am leaning heavily in that direction. Thank you in advance for all your help.
