    I'm up to ride anything-I enjoy grinding out big hills and doing technical rides as well as fast, easier singletrack.

    See you on the trails!

    :thumbsup:

    Kanawha State Forest trails are some of the best in WV. Not far off your path if climbing around Fayettville. Should swing by and crank out some miles sometime.

    Find me at: Fountainhead, Shaeffer's Farm, Gambrill/Watershed
    Riding: 2014 Yeti SB-75 & Chumba HX-1

    I rode BMX growing up and learned my way around a bike hanging out @ the LBS anytime i wasn't in school. I did some occasional BMX regional racing, but spent most of of the time riding dirt/jump tracks and vert ramps. I picked up my first HT (Diamondback Assent EX, still have the frame set up as a single-speed) in 89-90 and rode HT rigs up until 2013 when I bought my Yeti.

    I prefer fast and flowy to grinding out climbs, but like variety. I definitely have an appreciation for technical sections and features, like the stuff in the newly re-designed Black Loop @ FH - challenging, but very fun!

    I'm usually solo, so if any of y'all see me on the trail, please say hi!

    Riding: 2015 GT Sensor Comp, 27.5

    Rode a lot during my college years. Rode one of the early Diamondback MTBs that I got for my birthday in 1985. The bike still runs, but my younger brother took it from me when he moved to Dallas, Texas. I still want the bike back.

    Got back into riding this spring when I taught two of my four boys to ride. The 9 year old learned to ride in the Spring and now races around the neighborhood on his GT Aggressor 24. The oldest, 14, also got the riding bug when he got a GT Backwoods Comp MTB for his birthday. My 6 year old is learning to ride on a TRU BMX bike. (I will get him a 20" mountain bike when he gets tall enough.). I got myself the GT Sensor Comp to ride with them.

    Anyone planning to head to a trail this weekend? I work nights this week, so I'd have to be done around 3-4pm. Not an advanced rider, so I'm not sure if I'm good enough for patapsco yet.

    Thoughts on where I should go?

    Ride Patapsco, that's how you'll get better. Not all of it is that technical. You can park in Rockburn and start with that part as it's easy.

    Re-upping from my post above. Recently moved to the Winchester area, and having a heck of a time sorting and figuring out where to ride that is under 45min-hr away from my new home. I guess I'm spoiled by previously having KSF and Fayetville, in my back yard. I found sherando park, but looking for good flowy single track or techy stuff in my area. If anyone can direct me to more nearby options, or is in my area hit me up; I will provide a beer for guidance of course.

    looks like you're only about 2 hours from Allegrippis - though obviously not close enough for regular rides, if you've never been I'd hit that in early spring for sure. It's a bit of an epic spot guaranteed

    Welcome to Virginia.

    I'm also from Chattanooga. I built the single track out at the Henson Gap Hang Gliding Site. You are going to miss Raccoon Mt and the single track on Lookout.

    I'd start with finding Fountainhead Park off 123 South of Fairfax. Sweet riding there.
    As you get settled in head West to Elisabeth Furnace near Front Royal. Shenandoah is a few hours out. And Weekends in Harrisonburg are well worth it. The 81 corridor is Great. Ya got to hit Blacksburg and the Cove in Roanoke. The riding in Fredericksburg is worth checking out because of the great group of guys there.

    Evening traffic is a bear everywhere up there. So, after work rides are tricky unless you are on greenways. Bikes on the bike trail can go faster than cars on the George Washington Parkway.

    Good Luck
