My Ode to Mountain Biking, A Guest Post by Laura Colbert

An on going series from Laura Colbert from Loose Nuts in Atlanta, GA. Click to read more from Laura. I love mountain biking.  It’s an inexplicable love, given the tears, bruises, and soreness that it sometimes (…ok, usually) entails.  I have tried explaining to many confused friends the reasons why mountain biking is fun while one of my legs displays a blue and green bruise…
