I was talking with a friend about going mountain biking.
However, we are both new to the sport, and completely newbies when it came to mountain biking. We don’t know where to go to bike and how to do it.
In conclusion, we needed a guide to teach us the basics.
Someone with plenty of experience and could show us the ropes about biking, and give us some tips to help us turn the hobby into something we could be passionate about.
So we contacted a good friend(someone who actually have experience in mountain biking some of the best trails in the state), and he directed us to a guide that he wrote for a mountain biking aficionado website.
The guide was very informative, and included all sorts of tips about common repairs, gears, the best trails in the country, approach and more.
This is the same when it comes to the life of a Veteran, what kind of resources are out there for you?
There are only a few websites focused towards military personnel and Veterans, and forums for discussing current events and politics.
Not much else.
So I decided to make my own, and post it here for you to use and share.
