Well, I am going for a second time. I went back when I was in high school, about 4 or 5 years ago. I never got off of the easy hills. I can't traverse, but general straight riding wasn't bad, and stopping was getting fun. Unfortunately, I have a couple of friends which go twice a month or more during the winter. And they are on the rails, doing crazy stuff all the time. I am not going to attempt any of that stuff, but give me some insights on how to do well.
