The next sport that I would like adopt is mountain biking. I am not interested in the crazy trails that I see the younger fellows attacking. The intermediate trails seem just enough to sooth my interest without breaking my back.
The hardest part is going to be convincing the Mrs.. She has gotten used to watching me maneuver the white waters in my kayak; she has watched me take part in a few judo competitions and has observed my karate and Tae Kwon Do competitions, vowing never to watch them again. Also, the Mrs. had gotten wind of a mountain climbing incident that could have ended my life many years ago. Needless to say, she put a stop to my mountain climbing career. Now, my dilemma is how to break the news to her gently.
To add to the dilemma, I have put the cart before the horse, by finding an answer as to how to get started in the sport. I have discovered an Essential Bike Buying Guide. This book seems to be the perfect step by step foundation to building the knowledge needed to find the, most suitable mountain bike. It cuts through the mountain biker jargon and concepts that may be confusing to a beginner. See for yourself…click the following URL.
We truly enjoy the V-Eight styled PFD life jacket, although our original plan was to use them for kayaking. The freedom of movement is outstanding. And the life jacket allows your body to breath more due to ventilating ports. This is perfect for hot days, less heat buildup.
One of our all day trips; twenty miles up stream, and twenty down stream. Just me and the Mrs. What a team!
