    I know how you feel. Last week about 6 girls(recognized a couple from Bikerag) came pedaling right by me at Case. I pretty much took the first turn I could find

    Why?

    I'm a big sally. Lots of people go bigger and faster than me, some that sit when they pee, some that stand; but that doesn't really have much bearing on their riding as far as I'm concerned. Except the relative convenience after drinking too much from the CamelBak in the middle of the woods too quickly.

    You should have asked for pointers. Might have lead somewhere ...
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    The only thing that showed interest in me was their dog who stopped to let me pet him.

    Well, I generally feel like more of a wuss after watching most MTB videos. But I guess I'm also one of those stereotypical males who tends to think I'm better than girls at most things. I know that I'm not better, but it still hurts my male ego to see females doing stuff that I'm too chicken to do.

    Nice......just thinking about how I can get my daughter (she's 2 1/2 now so I've got time) interested in the adventure sports...so I can be the one learning from her some day!

    Agreed. It is always humbling when I see some girl go SCREAMING by me on the trails and absolutely tear it up. This leads to another thought....

    What is the mountain bike equivalent to a ski bunny?
