Hello from Dallas, TX! I'm travelling for work again, and I can't wait for the weekend when I have a chance to find some trails, which seem to be a little more distant from my hotel than I want to venture after a long day of work. I'll try to get some good pics and post a report later.
In the meantime, my mom pointed me to a nice article today by Teresa Edgar, founder of MTB4Her.com on the Weather Channel website (article and video here). It's just a quick story encouraging women to try out mountain biking by taking it slow, relaxing, and getting to know the easy-going mountain biking crowd. I found it very simple and positive. Check it out!
