Hi, I'm Alison. I've been riding MTB seriously for about year and am hooked. So hooked I became seriously involved in the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (The Home of San Diego Mountain Biking Association - Home) and IMBA for advocacy and to promote biking in general. I started off with a Giant Trance X0 then graduated to a Santa Cruz Nomad because I found I loved riding the superchunk, though I am getting used to the slightly additional weight.... I have a joplin seatpost, Hope stem, fox talus 36, race face crank set, Shimano XT, Juicy 5- about to upgrade.... and looking to fund a new wheel set to shave off more weight. Anyway, I'll be posting a LOT on events coming up, as I work closely in conjunction with Stone Brewing Co., New Belgium, and our local bike shops, and am now trying to jump start the social committee by creating ways to get riders riding and meeting other knuckleheads like ourselves Thanks for the invite and looking forward to riding with you soon!
