Who would have thunk it? After owning a mountain bike since 1984, I am finally using one regularly to train and explore the hills of Austin and the surrounding area. Long before 1984, I was riding my bikes through the woods and trails of my neighborhood in New Jersey. My fondest riding memories are of riding through the winter ice and snow with my Columbia Sting-Ray, the bike with the banana seat, stick shift on the seat tube, sissy bar with padded back rest. I also lost the use of my Raleigh Avenger in third grade when we built a jump ramp on the trail at the bottom of a hill. The rear wheel pretzeled after successfully soaring over four garbage cans.

Stop all this nonsense you say! Who cares about trails and gears and the environment? We want to see what mountain biking is all about - the endo!
Well, you asked for it. Here it is, nothing but a lot of thrills and chills and spills. See our best footage of people leaving the surly bonds of earth, but ultimately becoming reaquainted with Terra Firma.
