Hi, this is Robert Townsendn, the ‘Crazy Mountain Biker’ who keeps biking up and through the mountain slopes and hilly tracts with the fear of cracking some bones. On the day my old man presented me an MTB, I couldn’t imagine these extremities would soothe my heart someday. But it does now, especially when I feel like being lost. It has taught me that mountain biking doesn’t come easy without guts, tenacity, and skills. I took it as a discipline, and so, I’m here to speak to those hearts awaiting to be filled with the sensation of MTB riding. Here’s a collection of voices (text actually) for you!
