Hi all. This is my first time joining any forum, but I have read plenty of posts in various forums over the years. I've been mountain biking for almost 3 years and love the exercise and the rush. I have a 2004 Jamis Dakar XLT 2.0 (on a 3.0 frame), and a 2010 Jamis Dakar XC Sport. My go to Spots are Chino Hills State Park, and Aliso Canyon Woods Park. My last ride was at Crafton Hills in Yucaipa, I loved it!!! I also enjoy Marshall Canyon, and have been to a few other spots in in LA, OC, and the IE. I'd rate my skills at about intermediate, and I don't mind climbing but am definitely not a billy goat.
