Riding: 2015 Transition Smuggler

Been riding since '96 but not too much over the last few years. I met a guy in May of this year who rode and decided it was time to get back into shape. Since then I have lost 30 lbs. and re-kindled my love of MTB and all that goes along with it!

pics of my bike, just got it last week (shout out to Andre and Bike Works, Fredericksburg!!):

Moving to the DC/NOVA area in a few weeks.
Looking forward to meeting up with some new folks and exploring new trails.

Trails most likely to see me: I DON'T KNOW, HELP!

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

Moving near Arlington County this week. Might not have my bike for a few weeks, but would love suggestions on where to ride. I am moving from Chattanooga, TN.

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

I'm in Waynesboro too. You should check out Staunton Cycling Group and CAMBC on Facebook.

Usually riding: No bike yet (I guess if I have to answer this it would be my Triumph Speed Triple)
Trails most likely to see me: White Clay Creek, Iron Hill Park, Fair Hill, etc.

I'm currently in the market for my first official mountain bike. I've ridden the local trails when I was younger on borrowed bikes. Looking forward to continuing my research and hopefully a bike purchase soon!!
