A few more things to add to the Mountain Bikers Christmas list. In case you missed part I take a look here - A Mountain Biker Christmas List
I like to ride all year. Rain, snow and even during the occasional sun break here in the Pacific Northwest. For fellow hardy souls here are a few more tips to add to the Mtn Biker Wish List.
I use a MiNewt by NiteRider. It works great and lasts 3+ hours.
My LBS is Pacific Bicycle. I hope you have a great shop like Pacific near you.
A great Local Bike Shop (LBS) is nice to have too.
Why? Of course, they can fix your bike, they can offer advice so that you can take the wrench into your own hands. And the really great bike shops organize rides.
My LBS organizes and leads rides for all levels of riders.
For long rides I carry lots of water and food for Ellie. Ellie LOVES to ride/run too.

A Trusty Riding Companion
Our dog Ellie loves to get out for what I call Ride / Runs. Of course, she can’t ride, but she gets to play in the water, snow, and to hang with a bunch of sweaty bikers.
Worst case … if you can’t find that perfect gift you can always get a gift certificate and let the rider in your life pick what they want.
If you are looking for a little more about Mtn. Bike riding take a look at the links below for Why I Ride in the PNW, Bike Maintenance Basics and Why I Offer to take people out riding.
Can I ask you a question? Why do you Ride?
Drop your comments here. Add your suggestions for the things that are on your wish list (I’ll do my best to make sure the right people see the list). And … if you make it to the Seattle area let me know if you want to get out and ride.
Thanks for reading. Ride Hard. Have Fun!
