Scott Adams has written several mountain biking guidebooks, including Mountain Biking Virginia (now in its third edition) and Mountain Bike Madness in Central Pennsylvania. He is a regular mountain bike contributor to MetroSports Magazine and has competed in more 24-hour races than he likes to remember. A native Virginian, Scott lives with his wife and growing family in Charlottesville, Virginia. Few things reward him more than a long hike to the top of a mountain or an early-morning bike ride with no particular place to go. Martin Fernandez is a native of Lima, Peru and now lives in Virginia. When he's not riding his FAT in the backcountry trails of Maryland and Virginia, Martin is hard at work designing publications and web sites or trying to come up with an award winning homebrew recipe. He is a graphic designer who enjoys the freedom of cycling more than anything.
