There are many trails you can ride on there, NONE are posted no bikes, and they've declared a sort of moratorium on ticketing bikers until they work out how to live in harmony with the bikers.

In the meantime, there are bikers ALL over there every nice weekend biking on all trails, believe me. Not that I would do such a thing.

Fireroads are ok, the single track is the issue...always has been, yet new trails pop up all the time. It's going to reach a breaking point one day.

You guys have me missing my bike. I raced in the EUCOM circuit in the Masters bracket when I was stationed in Germany between 99 and 2002. Loved riding the alps. I have a 2000 Diamondback XR1 that's had a few more XTR components added. Now it collects dust. I need to tune it up and get my tail retuned for riding. Hell, who am I kidding, I'm 51 now, I'll watch.
Those of you who want a great reference on repair and maintenance, look at a book called: Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance Great reference.

Sand and snow Pugsley. How is it on snow? A 32X16 is mighty slow:-)

That was resolved. I literally have an email from the Mayor of Baltimore City on my phone saying so. They're ticketing for riding at night; that's it.

I will be 56 in a few days Kiddo And yes, I cannot ride the way I ride 5 years ago. My mind still say "go for that steep incline, or take that 4 foot drop" but I know the body can't take it anymore
