I was a mountain biker. Until I started deer hunting in MD. It is a true test of impulse control to maintain composure when some of those rejects decide to ride trails in designated hunting areas, DURING RIFLE season. One wisea$$ even said "oh, so should I be wearing hunter orange when I ride?". I'm all about biking, but I'm also into good judgment.

Its a wonder no one has popped one of them yet.

On the other hand, I was riding two weeks ago and spotted a tree stand off morning choice in Patapsco. Isn't that a big no-no?


Also, for posterity, here's my ride (Shimanos dumped for Crank Bros.):

The regs read that tree stands are supposed to be portable, and that they can't stay overnight - or something to that effect. Ultimately, I guess it's up to whomever is in charge of that particular park.

Mountain biking was my life. I lived and breathed everything MTB for any years. I had the ultimate custom Cannondale rig...it was perfection. I rode everyday before work an again when I got home. I road Gunpowder it I felt like hopping, Seminary if I felt like a no hassle ride, a little treasure called Paradise Farm Trail that very few people know about is my personal favorite (and home trail)...but if I wanted a real ride I would hit Green Ridge on the weekend. If you don't live there or you don't have powerful lungs don't even bother...you'll be sucking air big time. Even in my prime that place floored me. You get used to it though. Some of my favorite rides where that area near Green Ridge that they turned into a golf resort...when they were building that there was some seriously nice riding there. And the Frostburg ladies teams would job there...very fun. I spent many a post-ride night with those ladies in that little pizza place people from Frostburg love so much!

Of course all things come to and end. I was on the Verizon Cycling Team and on my very first ride...and easy on road hill took me down for good. I didn't wreck..didn't do anything...my back just didn't feel right...and never did again. I spent a ton of money trying to get my bike so I could stand to ride it and endure the pain...nothing worked. When my dealer said the "R" word...I figured i was time to move onto to other pursuits. I still love bike though...I'm still looking for a Killer V 3000, perfect GT Zaskar Rey clone, and an 88 Haro Master to add to bike museum...read basement!

I have no experience other than the average riding a bike as a kid (26 now) but I want to get into it. I just bought what I believe is a beginner bike and now I am kinda curious what is the best to wear (Shoes, jeans shorts or pants, what type of helmet?) I know it seems simple but I know I wear special cloths for hunting and shooting and I wear special cloths for running but I have never done any serious mountain biking and im sure there are certain types of clothing that are more fitting for it. I have rode the bike around in the mornings just for a workout in just regular cloths like I would wear to play basketball but I dont know if this would be different than if I were to go out to GRSF or somewhere else.

The bike I bought is a 2010 Giant Boulder.

rrrrrrkevin-> The seams of pants all come together right where the "twigs and berries" are and are not comfortable when in between the weight of you and the seat. Those bike shorts that you might think are ghey are designed with the seams out of the way of sensitive areas.

Back when I got into mtb'ing everyone had the platform pedals. After a few years toe-clips came into mtbi'ing and I was told to get toe-clips so it will keep your feet from falling off the pedals and help in climbing. The learning curve was great, but I got used to it. Then 10 years later after clipless pedals came along I was told to get them. I didn't make the switch, even though I tried the learning curve from toe-clips to clipless was too great for me and I crashed a lot and gave up. The point...get clipless pedals now while your learning curve on everything mtb is new.

Thanks for the tip, I will keep that in mind when picking out what to wear.

Jean pants to thwart off the sticker bushes on tight single track...cotton socks...tennis shoes are fine...long cotton T-shirt...black....no helmet. That's what I would recommend you wearing.
