    This is where most of my rides start and finish. The big logs surround a fire pit, and the dirt driveway turns into singletrack just out of view to the left. A system trail runs through the trees behind the bunkhouse. I generally spend at least three nights a week here, it's a leisurely 30 mins from my house in town. While there are a lot of riders here at times, most of the week it's total solitude. It has cold running water in the warm months, an outhouse (privy) out back, and a small woodstove for heat. No cel signal unless you climb the ridge. Easy to see why I'm a happy guy! :)

    I tend to take road sign pictures in my neck of the woods when I do a road ride. This is the start of a very nice local climb.

    I'm glad you liked it! Most photos have been made in Moose Island (Losiny Ostrov) National park, which is pretty close to Moscow. The terrain is flat here, but you can always find terrific places to ride.

    There are absolutely no problems getting parts and bikes here as we have couple of fine bike shops in Moscow, plus online shops from St.Petersburg, UK and Germany. The only real drawback is russian currency value drop - bikes and parts prices has increased by almost 100% over the last year.

    Here are some more photos. Again, different seasons.

    Very cool! Thanks! What kind of summertime temps do you get there?
  • 09-27-2015
    Brisk Snail
    It very much depends on the weather. Sometimes we have one or two months rainy and it can be about 10deg Celsius warm, but if it gets dry and sunny we can have whole 30deg. Normally, around 20.
    Winters are not as cold as they used to be half a century ago, but we regularly have couple of weeks with 20-25deg below zero during a winter season. Sometimes around zero and no snow...
    Visit us in May - the mildest month in a year!

    That's quite a range of temps. I know you've had a quite a fire season recently as well. Thanks for sharing all the cool info and photos! Look forward to more in the future!

    Thanks for the positive feedback :D
    May I bother you with a question what you liked the most about those pictures and why? I want to try to look at the places I'm accustomed to from my early childhood at a different angle.
    Are landscapes in a place you live very much different? I'd like to know in what respect.
  • 09-27-2015

    Actually, the photos are very similar to the Appalachian area where I live. Although much hillier and the riding is usually rocky and rooty. October to May is usually kind of muddy. We are in a drought now, so everything is dry and dusty. It's great to see your photos of other places where people ride.

    Awesome! I miss hills now and then (as well as stones - you won't find any in central Russia). Though, there are plenty of roots, including monstrous ones. I'll post some photos as soon as I get them.

    Many people who live and ride in mountain areas insist the only place one can ride a mountain bike is mountains. It looks like I'm not even close to be a true mountain biker. Thanks God shops sell bikes and parts to both mountain bikers and pretenders like me :rolleyes:

    When you ride, you make the best out of what you have! I am actually in a very rural area, but it is common for landowners to have problems with mountain bikers on their property (mainly due to the destruction of property by three-wheelers), and we have actually had great riding experiences outside of the DC area where people manage the land for use.
    Although we are near great riding in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, it's all mountains here as you look south and west along the western spine of the Appalachian Mountains; you would assume there would be a whole lot more riding nearby than there actually is. The photo attached was taken near Frostburg, MD looking south and east over the Potomac River and into West Virginia.

    These are from the three places I ride-two of them weekly, the third every couple of months(white forks got swapped out last month).
    The similarities should be pretty obvious. When I say "techy XC", it's because the riding here is rolling hills, often with lots of roots and smaller rocks, but when it gets steep it gets chunkier.
    All snagged from facebook, so downsized x2, but since this is the photography section...

    Snow has definitely added fun to the routine runs. Can't get enough of playing on snowy trails, especially with my new Minion DHF 2.5 on wide rims.
