    Hey everyone,

    Eurobie is the upscale European flavor of a newbie. That's me. :)

    I moved to Irvine a couple of years back from a flatter country and added mountain biking to my sports menu. I used to race triathlon and I'm still in half-decent shape. Long rides are my thing. Call me a masochist, but I enjoy ascents more than descents.

    I'm definitely looking to add new ride buddies to my impressive collection of zero. So if you can stomach one more middle-aged fellow in lycra, feel obligated to ping me. I'm ready to ride anytime.

    Then of course contribute to the Sh!t talk and never take anything personal.... cuzz we know mountain bikers all have great people skillz.

    Welcome from Orange.....

    Long rides, huh?

    Like to climb, huh?

    I've been known to put together some death marches......er, long strolls in the Santa Ana's.

    Blur TRc.....26" or have you converted it to 27.5 like most people?

    @Hans - welcome welcome! You have come to the right place - middle aged (and perhaps 3/4 aged) dudes who love to climb. I fail to qualify on one of those terms, but represent the other well. My Avatar is a hint.

    I suggest taking a ride with @mtnbikej right away. You can introduce him to this "climbing" thing of which you speak!

    Ride a lot - write a lot!

    PS - I loved your intro.
