Jujuy

I'm from Jujuy (Argentina), in the triple border between Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. My bike is a GT Timberland FS. And I'm in the web seeing what other persons do and think, news, new products... etc., about mountain biking.-
One day, few years ago, I nedeed ride a bike. I ever thougth that bikes were toy for kids. The last time that I had been driving a bike was at 14. Well, I purchased a bike.-
Two or three times I fell down hard, without consequences, and I decided purchased a helmet and bike gear. When I went to the bike store and I saw the shapes, the colors, the prices... mmmmmmmm... "Che"-I said to the store seller- "I want a helmet and some clothes not a custome for carnival, I don't want make the ridiculous. Well I only purchase a helmet: Trek, whith flames (ridiculous bup cheap).-
Now whit 31, I enjoy ride whith muy GT and the burning helmet.-

Welcome to the Bikeforums, I'll be interested to hear about biking in Argentina. Have you got any pictures?

Sorry, my english is horrible. (with = whith, my = muy, etc.). really is not english. Is spanglish or something like that.-
I don't know why do you say Cardinals stink. But when I saw the final between Rams vs. Patriots, the judges stink.- (I prefer fotball-soccer, stink the same, but I like it).-
I don't know too much about the mountain biking in Argentina, here is difficult have a lot of contact. In this country the sport is not well organized. May be I could found some information about the races scheduled for this year but I don't promise you nothing.-
Here in my province we have several boys with conditions but if you wanna be a pro racer then you must get out the country.-
I only have landscape pictures of my province, well I don't know what kind of pictures you are looking for.-


And thank you for your welcome (Y gracias por su bienvenida),
you see, the spanish is easy. Yes = Si, No = No, good = bien, bad = mal, bike = Bici or Bicicleta, and so on.-

I'd be interested in seeing pictures of the areas you ride in. Landscape pictures would be fine!

I just like to see other parts of the world.

But if I fall down, or I need walk in a climb, you never will get a pictures of that.- (It's shamefull).-
