I Love Mountain Biking!
Having started riding at a young age, I was taught the proper way of taking care of my bike as well as fixing it for that was a rule in our family.
I remember one mistake when I was older, and it was not taking my repair kit with me while Mountain Biking around Whiskeytown Lake in California! I was barely half-way around the lake when I got a flat tire. It took me forever to walk my bike back out and it was a lesson well learned.
Do you like to ride and do you have a past experience that you would like to share?
