    Thanks:
    Cross Cycling-Cyclocross? Its a race with a mix of road and dirt, usually a short track and has obstacles here's a link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclocross

    Epic Ride-Can really be anything you would consider out of the normal. For some people its hundreds of miles and others its just a few hours.

    Adventure Ride-The way I've seen this used most frequently would be for very very long rides in very very remote places.

    Cross Country-A style of riding/racing that usually focuses more on endurance, has few jumps, and is ridden on bikes with less suspension. These are usually what local races are. Another link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-country_cycling
    SS is like beer...its an acquired taste.

    Thanks K!

    This helps me as I think about what type of trail riding I like.

    I'm going to look into distance riding in nature areas (all day rides) like me taking my bike upstate on the Metro and riding back. I'll try 40 miles my first time then build up as I go.
