What other non-bike outdoor activities do you like to do?

I have been an active hiker and rock climber most of my adult life, but mountain biking has become my primary focus over the past several years.

Words of Wisdom: 

Mountain biking presents endless opportunity for growth and challenges, both physically and mentally. Each step taken forward, every skill learned, every bit of confidence gained opens the doors to more. Teaching and sharing knowledge is a natural part of that growth for me.
