    Greetings from Alabama

    We have some really great county roads here, still have protective farm dogs, but the armadillos and vultures on the road are a sight to see !!

    Hello jefffeet, what are you riding on those country roads in Alabama?

    I will confess I did not know there were armadillos in Alabama.

    We need pictures!

    Welcome to BF!

    Jefffeet,

    Do you know if there's any mountain biking in northern Alabama? I am familiar with the area around Steele and Horse Pens 40 (from climbing) but would like to explore the mountain biking next time down.

    You're not lost if you don't care where you are.

    Why not ask your question in the Southeast regional forum? You may get several replies.

    Theres tons of good mountain biking in Northeast AL, specifically the Anniston/Oxford area (my hometown). There used to be alot more but some have since been closed to MTBs. Mt Cheaha has a nice new system that has opened since I left. There is a LBS, Funwheels in Oxford, that should be able to steer you in the right direction.

    Alabama Bicycle Design:

    Mellisa Manning, who designed this Fiberglass Ladies Bicycle, was born in Alabama.
    It's supposed to look like a Moped; doesn't it?
    Motorized bicycles are very popular in Alabama.
    This is an interesting statistic, they say 97% of all bicycle riding in Alabama is on private property.
    Many people in Alabama have 30,000 or 40,000 acres of land in their private estate, and so do their relatives and friends. People in Alabama use the baskets on their bikes to gather fruits and nuts from the groves.
