 I had a girlfriend a month ago. Life was cool. The only trouble was that she couldn't stand my riding days, she always wanted to see me... To the the point where she told me I had to choose between her & MTB, that was a difficult choice but now I'm sure I made the best. I'm single.

 hahaha... but that was absolutely right! a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. BUT nice video and nice riding ... and this girl will never force you to take that decision.

 I currently have a wife and she also has a problem with my riding days/times/habits. FML!!!!!!!!!!

 Look at it from another direction - maybe she thought you were a terrible rider and didn't know how else to tell you? hahihi:-)

 I too have a wife who also has a problem with my riding days; but that's because she can't go ride with me because she doesn't have a bike. We used to ride together until we decided to start a family (2 kids, 8 years later).

We're now in the process of building her a Warden to compliment my Chili Smile

 U can come ride with me any time Lalena

 She should have not only respected your passion but tried to get involved with it. Shuttled you. Go watch you ride. Take pictures. She should have tried it herself. I've been dating a dude for over a year, and I knew when I realized his passion for biking that I'd have to contribute to that. Now I got a bike myself and I even go riding when he's not here.

 Lalena .. how can you not find enough boy riding time.. the hills are crawling with dirt bags here on the shore that would love to ride with a lady. Smile

 My boyfriend is pretty amazing... I just wish I could get him out on weekday rides. Smile I just love biking a lot more than he.

Pushingbroom... Don't worry I have lots of dirtbags to ride with. I love the North Shore community. Smile

 I'm lucky in that my wife loves mountain biking as much as i do, problem at the moment is that she is 30 weeks pregnant, hasn't been able to ride since she found out that she was pregnant. So i get into 'trouble' for riding because she is unable to at the moment. She gets depressed watching me wheel my bike out the front door and she cant come as well

 I met a girl as she brought a dirt bike at the shop I was working for. For 9 years we are out for bike park weekends. Now we are married. Sometimes life is just great!

 Now, as my wife says, "why do MTB clothing company's not make any good riding gear for women"? What they do make is really boring or just the wrong cut.

 I got my fiancĂ© into mtb at the young age of 40. The only problem I have is her sulking because she can't go riding enough!!! Sure makes for a splendid view when I'm following her round the trails

 Pinkbike needs more Girls! Nice video, looked like a super nice and chill way to spend a day. It's always great in any of these action sports we all like when the ladies start really moving forward. (just look at snowboarding) We are seeing women's bike riding in all disciplines absolutely blowing up with talent. Downhill is being pushed, and just wait to see some of these young lady rippers hit the jumps, it's coming....
And sorry to the other gents and their difficult women. My girl lets me ride whenever! She knows it's my down time, my relax time, my get lost in the woods time. I get her back by letting her know how awesome she is as much as i can. sounds like a tiny compromise doesn't it? try it.

 Girls should be delighted to her boyfriends and their MTB.That means they wouldn't get any time and rest money to hang out with other girls. XD

 I know that there are probably many other female mountain bikers out there but you never ever see them on the trails or even in videos, it's usually the male riders always succeeding at the sport, it's like those Instagram posts I've seen on motocross pages, if you find a female that loves the same sport that you love, marry her

 My girlfriend think it's very cool I love riding my bike. She's always glad for me and says she gonna ride with me if I don't stop talking about riding because she find me so passionate when I express my feelings about riding my bike.
Perfect girlfriend! Smile

 The real problem for the girl riders is there are no guys to ride with around here and if there is I can shred better then them.

 Ashly there are hundreds of incredible riders where you live. You have some of the best dh trails in the country. .. Nice try though

 There are good downhill trails here though. You got that right!
  • 1 1
 Yes where you are in Idaho. Victor is packed. We drive over there constantly to go ride the pass. If you really don't know dozens of guys that are amazing on bikes, then you just don't know where your local scene is

 Great riding! But is a DH bike really necessary on that trail?
  • 1 0
 Doubt it was necessary but if she's like me owning a DH bike or a freeride hard tail. I would pick the DH because of the roots
