    Awesome! I sceond the notion that it is great to see folks I know! Mountain biking at Oak Mountain is a huge asset for the region. Before I became a Birmingham resident, I traveled with friends from Baton Rouge, LA for the sole purpose of riding the Oak Mountain trail. It and the great cycling community here were important factors that influenced my decision to move to Birmingham.
