Sold my mountain bike a couple years ago and I decided to finally get another one. I just picked up this beauty from Hyatt:




So now I'm looking to find some good trails and some folks to ride with. Where are the good spots? Looking for trails with hills and obstacles, not just the flat stuff. Let's hear what you got! And shoot me an invite if you have any upcoming rides.

Sorry to thread jack, Riley, but while the riders are in here - I had a question:
Cyclists...let's see your rides!



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

start with this

Trails | MORE-MTB

There is also great falls, a crap load of trails on quantico, can get up to frederick MD to gambrills or greenbriar state park but riding up there is expert level.

Aside from Wakefield and Fountainhead, Laurel Hill trails are pretty fun and fast (although not terribly technical....except the specific technical garden area they have set up), Schaeffer Farms up near Germantown is another great spot.

Yeah, I'd like to start off with something less technical anyway since I'm just getting into the sport. Are all these free or do you have to pay to ride any of them?
