        I just got back into mountain biking and just joined NEMBA this morning. I took a long time off from the bike, got into golfing and fell in love with it. Now I'm trying to get back into shape and remember how to ride a bike. I went to Massasoit to see what type of conditioning I'm in and found out that I'm either not opening my mouth enough or there isn't enough oxygen there. Let me tell you I was really sucking air. I had a blast just the same. I have a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR. I bought it back in the mid 90's and used to ride alot out at Otis and some at Trail of Tears. Now I live in Attleboro and really haven't explored the area for riding. I know one thing, this area seems to be more rocky and technical than the cape. I'm used to the rolling singletrack at otis. Everything here is technical, to me at least. This makes it hard to ride and get back to the point where I can tackle the hard stuff. Anyways, enough about that. I'm hoping to be able to meet people of my ability and get back into riding full time.

            New to NEMBA

            Hey there! I'm new to the membership and forum. My husband and I bought bikes about 10 years ago (Walmart specials) and finally upgraded to Gary Fisher's last year. I'm happy with mine but he just bought an awesome Cannondale Rush that he says feels like he's riding on clouds! Maybe next year I"ll upgrade to a nicer bike but for now, mine works. We bike at Massabesic in NH a couple times a week if we can. We bring our dog, Zak, with us who loves to run along side. We love biking single track but are looking into doing a triathlon next year at Clough State Park in NH so will probably start road biking in the spring, too.

            We are always looking for people to bike and hike with and would love to meet people outside of NH, too and bike the weekends in MA, ME, VT or CT.

              Well getting involved with your local mountain biking organizations is a great way to meet other mt bikers and mt bikers that do advocacy, triathalons, cyclecross and marathons. I got involved with FOMBA and SNH NEMBA about 8 years ago. There are some really terrific, positive minded, and generous people making these organiztions something to be proud of and be a part of. Most of my best friends are people i've met through these organizations. See you on the trails.

                My name is Ken Keister and I thought I should finally post in this thread since I've been lurking for a while, but posted for the first time earlier today. I currently live in Glenwood Springs, Colorado but will be moving to the Portland, Maine area in the near future.

                I intend to become a NEMBA member as soon as I get to New England and plan to participate in trail building/trail workdays in the area.

                To answer the original questions:

                Where do you ride? I don't, yet
                Have any more pics? Link in my signature
                Take any good biking trips? Fruita, Crested Butte, Moab, Monarch Crest (all 3 hours or less from my present residence)

                ....and most importantly - what bike do you ride? Yeti 575 & Voodoo Dambala set up as SS.

                I look forward to meeting some of you in the spring.

                  I was looking at your pictures...seems to me you like the outdoors Great pictures. I hope Portland, Maine is as nice as Colorado for you. I don't think you could have chosen a better place to move to that is as close to the Colorado atmosphere than Maine.

                      But, just got diagnosed with a herniated disc (L5), and going in for steroid treatment on tuesday, HOPEFULLY this won't end my season, but I'm kinda doubtful. Just got back into biking after a 10+ year hiatus, and skiing too. Actually met one of the board members last weekend by accident at Foxboro, really nice guy, and I hope like hell to be back on my bike asap. So much fun, so many years missed out on, lots to make up for.

                            newbie

                            I live on the south shore and just recently got back into it, I haven't ridden in probably 3-4 years. I had a Gary Fisher Marlin when I lived in western MA and hit up spots throughout the berkshires. I actually just bought a 2003 kona kilauea, joe murray edition from Craigslist for $250 and was looking for feedback as it's my first Kona.

                            Thanks a lot all!
