    Hello from Ohio! Looking for trails near Columbus

    Hello,
    I used to live in northern New Mexico and have had to come back to Ohio in what was going to be a temporary move but might have to be longer. I have an Ellsworth Epiphany that is at my old place, but I will end up getting in early spring to ride around here. I see there are lots of trails in the Nelsonville/Athens areas. Anyone have personal reccomendations? Or any good trails closer to Columbus?

    Not sure how many miles of trails on BLM land, very extreme trails and rarely used, only a 10 minute ride from where I lived.

    As an aside, I am leery of having the bike shipped, so I am going to fly out and either rent or buy a cheap car to get back. Any experience with shippers on this? I suppose the most important thing would be to package it well.

    Mountwood Park in nearby-ish Parkersburg, WV is pretty decent.

    Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
