I'm 58 years old and took up mountain biking two years ago. My health has improved tremendously and I dropped 20 pounds. Still looking to drop another 20 though.

Beer SB - ?

Sentiers du Moulin and Vallée Bras-Du-Nord is always a blast!

Have you ever made it to Circuit Frontière (East-Hereford)? If not, this should be your next trip in QC!

Let me know next time you come in QC!

Will do! We do this trip every year around late september. We've done St. Raymond, Shanahan, Val Bras du Nord, Mont-Saint Anne, and Bromont so far. Such good riding in QC,Canada.

Sentiers du Moulin was my favorite for trail riding, and Mont Saint Anne for DH. Quebec in general is definitely one of my favorite places to ride, it's why we make the yearly visit. Next year we're gonna add Whistler to the menu.

Little local “it’s sunny let’s go for ride” afternoon with the better half. Finished off with a Rattler

58 here, road rider for years until 3 years ago my son lets me have/use his 2005-ish giant Reign (he's been into it since his teens - heavily!) and takes me off into the woods a couple years after I decide I had better get back in shape or suffer the consequences. Well, that was all it took, immediate addiction and off to shop with credit card in hand for a rightful ride. Had a few good crashes, knock on wood no recovery required. Where was this when we were young? (As if I EVER could afford a $1500, nevermind $4000 bike back then)

Well, there was nothing worth buying until the end of the 80's...so you^ didn't miss out on toooo many yrs...haha
I might even argue that there's was no suspension worth bothering with either until well into the 90's. The early yrs of mtb suspension was a noodley cluster-F
