Ah, nothing sucks more than going for a bike ride with a random group of strangers, a leader who doesn't have a pre-planned round, and snobs who scoff at where you bought your bike from, and how much you paid for said bike.

Get good enough to ride their ass into the dirt! Then point and laugh at them!


I really hate that "Elitist" snobby bullshit! Take something fun and turn it into a clicky, ego, status thing! Fuck 'em!! Have fun with your new ride and definitely try to find a better class of people to ride with!

Yep, definitely seems to be a whole lot of that going on. Who cares if someone is riding a damn Huffy, as long as they're having fun then rock on!

Definitely! This lady was considering starting up a second group of girls only mountain bikers, but after her reaction about my bike, and just the general disorganization, I think I'm going to go elsewhere to ride with girls. My first experience with the local Dirt Girls group was great, and I would definitely try to get together with them. Negative Nancy's are just not my thing!

Ride with guys. They will make you a better rider.... The girls that work for me ride with me just to improve their downhill riding, I follow them uphill for encouragement

+1

...or, find guys who you are better than! It will boost your ego, encourage you to keep improving so you stay better than them!


(...plus, great bragging rights to be able to say you're whupping the dudes asses!) I'll ride whitcha if I ever get out thata way! You won't get the same bragging rights out of outriding an old fart, but my ego can handle being beat by a girl! Lol!

I'm slow as hell uphill but I try.

There aren't a lot that are faster on a single track. I'm not super fast on a full on DH course but I'm not slow either since brakes typically make you eat shit.....
