My Advice to You

Don't mountain bike when you start dating someone!!! I was mountain biking this weekend and was smoking the trail as usual. All of a sudden, for probably 2-3 seconds, I thought about the girl I went out with the night before. That's all it took. I ran right into a tree. The second time I thought about her on the same ride, I fell in a spot that is so easy and I have never fallen there before. That's where I hit a rock bed and am now black and blue down my left side.

Again, don't mountain bike when you start dating someone!!!

Yep, I actually wrote a poem about it and am having a leaf off the tree I hit coated with 23K gold powder. I plan on giving it to her this weekend!

Wow... If that doesn't impress her, you might as well just give up.

HaHa There is a local rider here who, on his first date went riding with his now fiance. Long story short, he ended up in the ER and was in the hospital for a couple of days.

If you keep crashing when thinking about her imagine what would happen if she road with you

I sincerely hope you're joking. Girls are evil, and I have proof:
