From the technical Monster DX trail to Rambler and the steep rock face drops.

Pedal Montclair: Advice to any new comers?
Aaron: My advice to new comers is to get a bicycle that fits your intended use and has room for upgrades. Also, find a group ride to join but don’t worry about keeping up, use the time to watch the better riders and pick up some pointers.If you’re stoked after the ride you’ll want to come back for more and when you have that passion for riding your skills will follow.
Pedal Montclair: Who's your favorite rider?
Aaron: This is a tough one, I admire so many, but the cross country riders are my favorite. Julian Absalon, now retired, was always a favorite. My two favorite riders are currently wearing the rainbow stripes as World Champions, Swiss maestro NinO Schurter and the USA’s Kate Courtney!
