    Hi everyone! I finally decided to start stalking my husband on this forum so I can see what he's "really" doing with all the time he spends on the computer, when he's not riding his bike. :laugh: lol!
    I like to "enjoy" riding my bikes, not suffering like my other half does:gag:, and I also enjoy riding my horses.
    Some of you have met me and I look forward to joining more rides with you.

    Bienvenidos!! We've never met, but I've read of your exploits.

    My daughter was an equestrienne, show jumping and all. Cost me a fortune. Hail fellow(ette) well met, and all. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Welcome, Mrs. Mtbj! Your taste in men and bikes is impeccable, and I'm sure J will back me up there. :D

    Hope to meet you for a dirt party, but until then... Rubber and hooves down! :thumbsup:

    Yeah... I really scrutinized this new member when they signed up. With a name like @horsebikerider I thought of some spammer/troll, or covert secret agent for an equestrian group conducting spy activity for an anti mountain bike group gone bad.

    Then when I read the profile and discovered the Tandem in the stable, I thought to myself, "Who in the world would ride one of those???", and then I just knew it could only be Mrs. Martin!

    Your old Tallboy lives with us now, my wife got pregnant shortly after I bought it for her but she can't wait to get back on it (her first mtb).

    Any time!

    I saw a lot of little trophies on Strava... Even with that truck tire he put on front. :thumbsup:

    So, what do you think? Plus... 29... Both?

    Yeah, but if I were a girl, I would have been tied for... Um, um... 245th. :oops:

    She beat Maddy Bemis! :thumbsup:

    I like both!!! Obviously, the 29's are faster and more efficient, but the 27.5's are so much fun and go through anything. Tough call.....darn 3rd world problems having to decide which is better. LOL :Roflmao

    Bemis and Gwendalyn Gibson from Ramona HS were AMAZING to watch in the HS league this spring.

    @horsebikerider has ridden with a lot of us. She knows we're mostly on a grade school attention span.

    Maddy Bemis is a machine. The only rider to go toe to toe with Tinker at a couple of the Temecula races and push faster lap times doing it. Something like 120 miles and 15000 feet in 12 hours, which was more than the 4 man pro teams. Not bad for a 16 year old. I gladly donated to her 24 hour NZ trip after seeing that. :thumbsup:

    Yeah... It was a little defeating to have her go by so often. Each and every time she flew by, I got a sweet high-pitched, "Nice job, Sir", as I watched her pigtails disappear in a blur. I can laugh about it now. :p :cautious:

    I've said it before, but it bears repeating: The HS MTB kids are all amazing! Great bunch of kids!
