It’s really exciting to see the sport of downhill mountain biking explode. I feel like I’m reading about more places to hit the dirt every week.

Unfortunately, I’ve never been mountain biking… Anybody want to show me the ropes? Maybe it could satisfy my downhill desires during the warmer months?

Check out this video of the mountain. I love how the set up resembles the skiing and snowboarding experience that we’re all familiar with.
