Where are you from and What is your favorite place to ride?
I envy you guys... I live in a highly urbanized metropolis with practically zero consideration for cyclists. I find riding in cemeteries to be the safest and most convenient venue in which to ride... peaceful, you know..
I'm from Wiltshire, UK love MTbikes and must be the oldest around here at 70. I make single track trails in our local forest other younger riders some times add jumps or bigger burms to these trails my stead at the moment is a Rocky Mountain for my off road fun and I mean fun only last weekend I did the Sarsen 50k off road ride in under 4 hours against steep and slippery dips and hills with fare old gall blowing.
Looks like I can't show you my bikes, as I also have my road race bike Claud as in Butler, it was saved from the tip by a good friend and with in a month I was in Paris with. Then there is my very old and heavy Dawes for local shopping or nipping down to the yard for working on.... bikes or relevant bike subjects like are Wobble weekend fun with bikes.
AS I'm new to this forum I must learn your ways, ta-ta for now.

Ha, just seen that you had a problem with images, and I never did like Photobucket, to slow and complicated. But thanks for trying Alex.
I currently live in Tyrol, Austria.
This region is without a doubt my favorite place to ride, both on road bike and MTB. You have scenic and steep AF mountain trails within hands reach (also some great single trails for downhill), and the same can be said about the road biking possibilities. I understand why Tyrol hosted world championship last year. Had to get used to constantly climbing uphill for tens of minutes or even 1h+ without any flat sections, which is completely different than small "up & down" hills and heavy winds that I got used to in the past.

I had the privilege to grow up in Bavaria (Germany) -> loops with road bike around Walchensee or into Austria around Plansee (MTB routes from Garmisch to Plansee, Ehrwald) were the best Smile or biking to to Forggensee to take a look at Neuschwanstein castle but in US so far I've had the chance to ride my bike only around Long Island.
