    Hey All!

    Expanding my options. My main focus is Whitewater Kayaking. I am from Southern Illinois, but from October through April I spend about every other weekend in NW Arkansas running rivers. When the water dries up I take three trips each summer to the Nantahala River area in W. North Carolina and I keep seeing all the Bikes coming and going from the Nanatahala Outdoor Center heading to the Tsali Trail and I keep thinking I need something else. So, here it is. I started looking at bikes a few weeks ago and ended up picking up my Giant "Rainier" yesterday. Wow!

    Anyway, I look forward to using this forum for advice. Expecting mostly trails but have some off road planned as well.

    Who knows, maybe I will run into you sometime

    Thanks for the welcome,

    Jay

    Hello Jay, my one and only whitewater experience was rather tame--running the Russian River many years ago. It was fun, although the bruising I experienced confirmed my suspicion that this was not quite my sport. I did manage to be the only one in the group who did not wind up turning upside down though .

    I think you will come to appreciate mountain biking as an exciting pursuit.

    Welcome to BF!
