    I'm predominantly a fire trail and rural rider, nowadays. I live on the Great Dividing Range near the Murrumbidgee River in the NW of the Australian Capital Territory, on the fringe of the Nation's Capital.

    There are lots of unformed roads, out this way.




    ... and many hills.




    There is a good mountain bike park in town called Mount Stromlo, which I used to ride ... but the hills afford more peaceful riding.

    Awesome shots! Where in the Hudson Valley do you live? I'm in Harriman right across the street from the state park. What trails do you usually ride?

    The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trail was the 1st designated IMBA Ride Center located in Crosby Mn with 25 miles of purpose built Flow trail. The CCSRA was abandoned by mining companies more than 30 years ago, this area of former mining pits and rock deposit stockpiles now boasts regenerated vegetation and clear lakes that draw a wide range five miles of natural shoreline can be explored by boat or canoe and anglers can cast a line for trout, northern, bass, crappie, or sunfish. As one of Minnesota's newest State Recreation Areas, Cuyuna's 5,000 acres are mostly undeveloped with additional Mountain Bike trails being planned.

    I live in Rockland county. My usual rides include Ringwood, Jungle Habitat, Wawayanda, Blue Mountain, Ninham, Sprain, but I also have found some stuff in Harriman/Steling Forest that is ridable, although not really designated. All my trips are tracked on EveryTrail - Travel Community, iPhone Guides for Sightseeing, Hiking, Walking Tours and more, user name...you guessed it huffster.

    Phoenix AZ is a great place to ride bikes! Shots taken with a Canon T3i, Tamron 10-24mm, and Rokinon 8mm. Camera now regularly gets hauled on trail rides in a Clik pack.

    Yes sir. Millions if not billions of dollars lost in total on the east coast due to Irene.

    I miss the Berkshires. I used to love driving out that way when I lived in E. MA.

    The Mohawk trail was great, and Greylock was always a fun trip.

    Representing east Texas here... about an hour northeast of Houston in the heart of the piney woods lies Coldspring, TX. Not the most technically challenging trail, but very fast and very pretty.

    Hutch - the first 2 photos are from SMBA and the last is Yokun (good eye Berkshire_Rider). I'm a member of HRRT. Were you at the race yesterday? I was part of a duo and took some pics while I wasn't riding. Here are a couple from yesterday's race (to those who recommended a flash - I used a fill flash this time in an attempt to get good shots of faces):
