    Hi TheProphet,

    I've ridden Avalon one time...I think during my second year of riding in '97. I thoroughly enjoyed it at the time. It was a bit of a haul for me (I was living in Rockville at the time).

    I typically work a six day week between the day job and playing in the band on the weekends. On my days off, I want to spend time with my family. I really don't have the time to venture too far from my home base in Damascus...but what a place to be base bound! I've got Schaeffer Farms, Hoyles Mill Connector, Black Hills, Little Bennett, Seneca Greenway and Seneca Creek State Park all less than 20 minutes driving time from my house. I'm only 0.6 mile from the Lower Magruder Spur of the Seneca Greenway...I can ride right from my driveway.

    Still, I wouldn't mind going back to Avalon one day (or the McKeldin area).

    Hello! I hope you don't mind me crashing in from the southeast. I noticed a lack of riders from Delaware though. I was born and raised in Newport, DE and learned to ride trail on BMX bike built up from junk parts at any place we could find dirt. With the money I spend on bikes now, I wonder how I ever got by as a kid.

    I get back up to Newport about twice a year and head out to Middlerun/White Clay or Fair Hill to get my fix. Thankfully there's a shop in Newark that rents bikes.

    Give a shout if you down my way. There's a ton of great trail in the southeast!

    Me: Loren, tall guy, bike mechanic, father of two.
    Lives: Manassas, VA
    Usually end up at Fountainhead or Wakefield, but prefer Elizabeth Furnace or Schaefer or something more fun.
    Ppl I know from the forums: Pretty sure I've raced against Drevil a few times at wakefield.
    Steeds: Just got a red Niner singlespeed and a Salsa Dos Niner. Used to ride a blue Rock Lobster single and a Fisher Mt Tam a lot. Might see me on my orange VooDoo cross bike or high tailing it to work thru luvly manassas on my avocado fixie, or any number of frankenbikes, too.
    Things I do that are annoying: Complain about not getting to ride as much as I used to, fart a lot, too friendly/enthusiastic about riding and stuff when on the trail, constantly finding reasons to need another bike, large feet are a tripping hazard, too handsome.

    Here's a really old pic of me that illustrates why 29ers are the bees knees for me.
    Comparisons are odious.

    Joey, was that first picture taken at the Appalachian Classic? Also, how are you liking your 29'er?

    Oh yeah, I saw Davis this past weekend when I was in Marlinton for the pre-season training camp. He's just as ugly as ever, if not more so.

    Why won't anyone ride with you? Because you're a freakin' double XC racing maniac? Perhaps? Maybe?

    Outdoornut, after seeing the your pics, I'm thinking I may have seen you and your son once on Laurel Creek (aka Rimel) here in Pocahontas County. But I could be wrong. Ever ridden that?

    We rode there last year in June for the first time, while camping at Watoga. There were a few trees down due to a pretty good storm a few weeks before. Was pretty nice except for the run in I had with a hiker who had two big a$$ dogs running free. One of them charged us and I came real close to busting a cap on the one as it got close. Didn't take long for his owner to call him back when he saw me draw my .45 and start taking aim.
    Didn't know I could get that thing out of my pack so quick. We had a few words, he decided to put them on a leash instead of burrying one and went on our way. I remember passing a few other bikes that day. We didn't go back last year but I plan on hitting that one again this year. I've read that they are trying to clean it up some.

    If it was us you may have been able to tell from my Sons bike easier. Haven't seen many around. He rides a Scott Racing 24 I just got him in June last year. He really likes that thing. It is so light he can usually leave me on many of the climbs.

    Maybe we'll see ya over there this summer. We've already got a few weeks vacation planned over that way. Usually do vacations around Marlinton because it is so far to drive. We save the Davis / Canaan area for those one day or weekend trips. Both areas are well worth the drive.

    I've talked two guys from work into getting back into mountain biking so I hope to drag their butts over there and show them why I'm over there so much. I've never done all the trails at Tea Creek but now that Scott is getting better on the technical sections our plans are to do them all this year. He handled Snowshoe very well last July so it's time.

    GusTopher, I grew up in 'noke town and went to high school there. I've been living up in Charlottesville for about 5 years and recently bought a home in Waynesboro, VA. so I'm not too far away. The Cove was my stomping ground for many years and I miss it alot. I'd love to get up and ride there with you sometime if you are down. It's also been about 6 or 7 years since I rode at the explorer park, what is t like these days?

    I don't think I've done this yet so I'll throw my info down....

    If you are looking for a group to ride with, look in the VA forum for our Sunday rides that Princeton Sports puts on. Its a good way to meet new riders and enjoy what the park has to offer.

    Today is my third day as a resident of C'ville, VA. I move the rest of my family (and my bikes) down here in a few days. I'm thrilled with the quantity and quality of riding to be done in in the vicinity and am looking forward to getting pulled around some trails by some local-yocals in the near future.

    This is just before I we found that we couldn't drive down off of the mountain because of a car going off road into a creek. That cost us an hour of driving.

    Pleased to meet yous

    Hi people! This is officially my first post, so please consider this a formal introduction
    I'm still a "newb", so I'm anxious to yuk it up with you folks and learn some stuff. I rediscovered cycling last spring, and I've had an amazing time outdoors since doing so...don't really see myself slowing down any unless my leg falls off or something. Heh. Anyway--
    This being the mid-atlantic sort of thread, I figure I'll be spending the most time around here.

    Name: Aaron (or A.P. if you like)
    Live: Elkins, WV
    Usually riding: silver '06 Trek 4900 disc w/ many upgrades
    Trails most likely to see me: Nothing super challenging since I've only been doing this about 9 months...but I really enjoy the Camp 70 trails in Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and parts of Coopers Rock State Park. I get my daily fix on the Allegheny Highlands rail trail.
    Other people from this board I ride with regularly? No one yet anyway...I ride solo since I don't have any friends on bikes...it'd be awesome to ride with a group though.
    Pic: Not an "action" shot since I ride solo, but this is a misty July day in Canaan Valley, WV.

    Hey everyone. Jason here. I live in Ona WV. I am new to the sport, and can't wait to get going. When I was a teen I got into it a bit, but not much. I bought my bike in January, and can't wait to hit the trails. I will mostly ride Barboursville Park, or Beech Fork. I will probably be solo, as I don't know anyone else into biking.

    First of all Jason, welcome to the sport and to MTBR. I'm sure you will get hooked very
    quickly as most on here did. There is some great riding no too far from you either.
    Kanawha State Forest has some great trails. If you are just getting back into it then give
    Davis Creek Trail a go.

    If you ever get up to the Parkersburg area check out Mountwood Park. There
    are some extremely nice singletrack trails to be ridden there. Great place to learn before
    hitting those more difficult / technical trails. If you decide to ride there let me know, there
    is a link to a good map of Mountwood's trails.

    Have fun and hope you find some locals to hook up with on the trails.

    I'm an old new guy from Delaware. I walk a bunch of the local trails and the mb guys seemed to having a bunch of fun, so I figured 'why not?' I just bought a leftover Cannondale F300 last week and it only took me a few miles on the road to realize that walking trails is not adequate conditioning for biking! After some work hardening I hope to be hitting the trails this spring.

    I live adjacent to Carousel Park and within a few miles of Middle Run and White Clay Creek; lots of great trails with a good mix of difficulty.

    Always Riding- 2006 Haro Extreme 7

    Trails most likely to see me or most likely not to see me...: A few weeks ago you would have seen me at the Shed, 495, Fountainhead, Franklin Farms, etc...Myself and two of my friends have started to build our own crazy stuff somewhere in NOVA on 50 acres. Mostly North Shore and Free Riding shizzle...not enough downhill to go to crazy with it. But we have some nice 30 foot skinny to 6-7 ft tranny's...you get the deal..

    Other people from this board I ride with regularly
    : SODAK06,

    When I'm not riding: I may be hunting, fishing, or building stuff to ride on...just pedaling fast downhill on trails doesn't thrill me...I love to push my boundries and see what I can do without hurting myself too much. I would say my "thing" would be skinnys'.....



    Pic Below...just messing around with some hurting stuff at the Shed before we hit the other stuff



    Riding a skinny down a tree...If I recall..I didn't stay on and went right...and ended up trying to cross the water which was about a foot and half deeper than I thought...Not fun on a cold day...




    And Lastly...My New Haro X7
    Next i will build my Hardtail for riding around DC pissing off the yuppity yups...


    Pics of the two guys I ride with SODAK06 and my other roommate Mikey.....They are riding a Fuji and a Dirtbag Transition

    fakiep, is your seatpost extended past it's minimum insertion mark? looks really high. if it is it could bend both the post and the top of the seat tube of the frame. not much you can do for a frame once that happens.

    Its a 19" and Im just over 6' tall. I kept going back and forth between the 19 and 21 but because I ride tight, technical singletrack almost exclusively, I went for the 19. I even looks uncomfortable to me when I look at those pics..LOL... but I like a real aggressive stance when I ride and It feels perfect when I ride.

    We honestly i have only been there about 3 times and once to Pax. It has been good fun when I have been. I grew up in the woods of Pg County so it is realy nice to get out and scoot around the trails. Some of the up hill climbs out under the power lines kick my butt but that is half of the reason im doing this.

    Very true. If you like powerline climbs, make a trip up to Patapsco State Park sometime, they have some good ones on the Baltimore side that just kick your butt.

    First of all Xian welcome to the board and welcome back to the sport.
    Is that the Germantown, MD between Boyds and Gathersburg?
    I used to liver near Boyds as a kid.

    If you ever get over into West Virginia to ride, shoot us a PM or post it up on the
    WV board. I'm sure someone will be glad to show you some of the great trails
    we have over here. I spend more time riding in the mountains than I do around
    my home here in Western West Virginia.

    Blyth, welcome to the board and to our shared passion. You live close to some
    awesome riding and another of my favorite spots, Big Bear Lake near Hazelton, WV
    right off I-68. There is some awesome riding there and just up the road from it at
    Coopers Rock State Park. A ways south of you is Davis and Canaan Valley WV
    which is another great place to ride. I know there are several places not too far
    from Cumberland so get out there and ride, have fun and post some ride reports.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. Seems there are plenty of places to ride locally, Im still getting used to the conversion from the 20" BMX'er. I feel so awkward and unbalanced riding the light and tight 20" compared to the Big heavy entry level Trek (820 ST). Just cant toss it around yet.

    Not too many folks on here from W. MD, eh? I guess theyre all out riding.
