    Looks like you're ready to step up to a intermediate trail, I think of MD as pretty hilly, but then I've only driven through there a few times, I would think PA, and WV has some good trails not far from there too..good work on the video.

    Shoulda cleared the water. And it looks like you were pedaling too fast when you could have up shifted and went faster. Look good though, keep it up.

    Cool video, looks like you're having a great time on some really nice singletrack. Looks to me like you're spinning in too low a gear... upshift & relax, you'll go faster Great 1st post swk, keep up the good work.

    oh, might want to ditch the pie plate

    At the beginning I was thinking "Aw, poor guy, that's all he has to ride on." then the trail gradually "improved".

    Nice vid, nice ride.

    Yeah Lake Redman is intermediate and maybe an hour from baltimore right on 83. If you are looking for harder than that hit up French Creek. Probably one of the best trails systems in the atlantic region.

    Nice job on the riding and the video. Keep it up. I think you're ready for the intermediate trails too.


    Oh, and brake sliding isn't cool. It tends to tear up the trails and wears out you rear tire prematurely.

    Really good for your 6th ride ever. The cinematography was good too.

    My thoughts too! Spin slower and and go faster! (it'll probably help with your balance too)

    Looks like a fun trail to get started on!
