I'm kinda new to downhill but pretty stoked on it. Starting to feel more comfortable down all the blacks. My usual ride buddy just moved so I'm looking for people that want to go ride at Northstar or Kirkwood. Don't need a babysitter down the hill just people to push me. Or even meeting up for a ride elsewhere.

Depends on where you're at I live in Fairfield but have traveled to northstar a few times this summer, can't go no more though suffered a pretty big crash a few weeks ago :( sorry can't be more help to ya, but finding someone to ride with shouldn't be too hard just hit up your local bike shop they'll usually have weekly group rides at the local trails

Downhill, eh? I'm too much of an xc geek, as I ride there during their Thursday night series. I do try to get out early and pre-ride the course.

Maybe some day I'll grow big-boy pads and give DH a shot.....
