    Maryland - Where to ride?

    Gonna be in Northern Maryland in a couple of weeks for a while....WHERE CAN YOU RIDE? I fear the state does not have mountain biking?

    Also any good shops out this way? I'm looking for shops that may carry 29ers. I can't bring mine and want to possibly see if the shops have any to rent.


    Thanks

    There are plenty of places to ride. Where will you be staying? Someone can hook you up.

    Your a short drive to FairHill MD, White Clay, Middle Run, and the Judge in DE. To give you and idea they are all within 5-10min of the 19711 zip code

    There's also Susquehanna state park (closest) and Loch Raven reservoir ( a little ways south).

    Fear not. As said above, Fair Hill should keep you busy... or head over to Newark and ride White Clay. Also in Newark you can rent 29ers at Bike Line and probably also at Wooden Wheels. Both have websites with adresses, trailmaps, etc...... Get up here and check it out!!
    And a good day to you sir!

    Since it looks like you are going to be here for a while, I assume you are willing to drive a bit for good trail. Aberdeen itself is not a great MTB location, but quite a few things have been listed within an hour or two. Michaux, listed above is great, rocky terrain but tough to figure out unless you go with someone who knows there way around.

    I'd also recommend the Frederick Watershed and Gambrill State Park in Frederick, MD. About 1.5 hours away from where you'll be. You can see a sample of the terrain here.

    This is all awesome...thank you so much for the help. I'm definitely there for a bit and probably a transfer by Fall. I'll definitely have to hit some of these places up and head to Newark and check out the shops.

    Again thanks for the info.

    Newark bike shops: Wooden Wheels

    Wooden Wheels in the newark shopping center off of main st. is the only worthy shop in town.
