    Nice to see some of the locals ... I am bikeless now, as my sig indicates, lol, but am very tempted to move up my next mtb purchase asap to ride amelia...

    How does it compare to Markham? More trails, less, technical??
    Better 2 ask 4 pardon than 2 ask for permission. Recall that nxt time U feel you have 2 ask ur wife if U can buy something

    Well Oleta and Markham are more technical parks. Amelia is about speed. You are going so fast it's dangerous. Which is why people like it so much. Amelia is about 7 miles in total. There are more trials in those other two parks but you really need you bike on those. The better you bike the easier it will be for you. Oleta can be very hard for riders that are just starting to ride. Markham is just scary, the drops are crazy and the trials can leave you thinking twice about riding. While at Amelia you really don't have time because in the other parks you have time to react, i really don't think you do at Amelia, Especially in the little razor back trial the turns and jumps sneak up on you because of the speed.

    I hope this helps!

    There is a night ride starting at 530 on the 22nd that is a charity ride for Chuck, one of the trail builders, who was hit by a car on his bike leaving Amelia late last week. It is a $10 donation. Please come and help support Chuck and his family.

    I called Amelia Earhart this morning to see if the trails were open, they said yes. I went to Amelia and was told the trails have been closed all day.

    went to Oleta instead...

    Man it's been pouring all day!
    I doubt you guys might be able to get that in. If you do be careful it could be dangerous.
