I live and ride in the grasslands of the Thomson River valley east of Kamloops, BC. It's great country for exploring, which I do alot of with my neighbor. We are the only people here who ride bikes, everyone else rides horses like we USED to do. My bike gives me better exercise, doesn't have to be fed and never sweats. If we want to we can hook up with people in Kamloops where there are alot of trails. I ride cross country but recently have tried some downhill. I love it but will have to get some new wheels for that. So far I've been a one bike person, that being a Rocky Mountain Element 50. I started with a Trek which my kids coached me on. I hope to learn alot on this forum with the sharing of information. Glad to meet you all.
