enjoying on and off road riding

Hello,
I recently purchased a trek 7200 and have been loving both on and off road riding in Maryland and Virginia. New to hybrid biking and distance riding - and looking to expand my knowledge of this wonderful sport. Still getting used to maximizing the capabilities of my bike, and troubleshooting small repairs and adjustments. Just realized my off road capabilities do not include paths marked"wilderness trail" or billygoat...recently enjoyed a beatiful ride on the colonial parkway while on vacation - went from yorktown to jamestown and back - wow - so beautiful. Also enjoying Hashawa trails in carroll county - off road is really a great work out. Looking forward to hearing from you all, Cheers!

Hello araby4, what is the significance of your username? I am not much for 'wilderness' trails, but I do enjoy riding on the Forest Service roads in my area.

Araby was the nickname of a horse I used to train....and use it in his fond memory.

The trails I checked out were too rough for my bike (maybe most bikes) so now some of the bridle paths at the NEA are becoming a new favorite. So nice to get off the road once you're ridden there!

Thanks for your reply, and have a great weekend...
