Never been to a Michigan metro park, but received a map of their 13(?) parks yesterday. Here's a website that describes these metro parks, and where you can order maps:
I can foresee wanting to ride off-road in Michigan metro parks ... if that is permitted in these parks? For non-agressive off-road riding ... by a 50-year old office dweller ... which would provide a more reliable ride with some degree of comfort: Trek 7.7 FX fitness bike or Trek X02 cyclocross?
There would also be paved riding involved for the bikes being considered, so why would I choose either the 7.7 FX or the X02 cyclocross?
