22 Jan Kris – My Ride in MTBWA
While every mountain bikers journey is different, from the trail head every rider shares a common path. MTBWA wants to celebrate you, the riders!
MTB is a lifestyle where both rider and steed (bike) share adventures across the landscape. It is a culture of getting outside, hitting the trails, and breathing in the outdoors. Our machines sit ready and waiting for the next experience. Be it as our therapist after a bad day at work, or to sneak an opportunity to meet with mates. It is all too easy to get swept up in the fast pace of life, the next race or the next shiny new ‘must have’ item that can make us forget the whole reason why we jumped on a bike in the first place….To.Have.Fun #MTBYourWA.
So this is a celebration of you, the riders and your machine. From industry faces to weekend warriors, MTBWA wants to hear about the bike that has given you that grin from ear to ear.
Why this ride? It’s my 3rd MTB and I’ve got more confidence in this bike than ever before, everything is faster, smoother, more forgiving.
