    Howdy ya'll...

    ...that means "hello" in Texan.

    I'm 32, and I hadn't ridden a bicycle in about 15 years when some friends invited me to join them for a day of "mountain biking" at the local singletrack, Erwin Park. I borrowed a bike and a helmet, relearned how to ride in the parking lot, and spent the rest of day falling, bleeding, and eating dirt. Needless to say, I was hooked.

    I've been back there a couple of times since then, and I still can't navigate the technical stuff without falling or stepping out, but it sure is fun to try. I'm still a newbie, so I'll have lots of questions. Glad I found the forums.
