Matt's info

Matt's preferred sports:

Mountain Biking
I like Lair o' the Bear a lot. Trails like that I can ride easily. I have a hard tail and am near intermediate proficiency on very technical rides, though I am happy to run the bike through areas I am uncomfortable with. I'm a sissy downhill.
Road Cycling
I love the foothills, though I would like to try some mountain passes next summer. Went to some stages on the Pro Cycling challange this summer and would like to try some of those climbs. Slow and steady for me.
POWDER!!! Love to get away from the groomers and find powder, wherever it may be. Love carving fresh tracks and just chilling on the mountain side watching the snow. I love trees. It makes me ride better. Favorite Mountains are ABasin and Loveland (Blue Sky Basin at Vail). I have a Loveland Pass for this season (2014-2015). Go up most Sundays.
I've only done a few climbs outdoors, but loved it each time! Definitely want to climb more and be able to lead trips and teach others even. Would most like to learn climbing to conquer more technical peaks (14ers etc.).
Hiking and Camping
My favortie kind of hiking is peaking 14ers or getting away in the high country. I have bagged 10 of the 14ers in Colorado and would like to hit them all before I die! I also like quick hikes near town just to get the exercise. I prefer backpacking style camping because car camping isn't really camping to me. that said, I do car camp at trail heads before hikes sometimes.
Fun in the Sun
Love getting out and playing frisbee, soccer, and football around town. Also down with almost anything else in the mountains.
