I have the related Schwalbe Little Big Bens on my Trek (40-622). They roll really fast and they're also pretty comfortable at the pressures I run (25 front/50 rear). I've been highly impressed with them.

One of the river access areas at the Shenandoah River State Park in beautiful western Virginia. This is about 30 mins from our house, and we've been frequenting it quite a bit lately. Lots of gravel/dirt/bridle paths to ride.

And a lazy river on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

That looks like a very enjoyable area to ride in. Hard to be angry and worried about worldly things when your have that scenery to absorb most of your thoughts!

Thats about the same pressures I'm running too, I'm really impressed at how well they roll and they're quiet too.

Finally got a nice clear "no rain day" but the wind was a pain, still was able to get a good 50 miles in today.

My hybrid is sort of a cross between an elliptical bike and a mountain bike. Took it out for a training session, it was pretty intense. The exercise really works the right muscles and it feels good to ride. Way better than those indoor gym machines where you cycle in one place

Starkey Wilderness Park in Florida

Rode 13 miles Sunday out the Starkey Park bike path to the Suncoast Trail and back. It was a nice day for riding in Florida other than the headwind during the first half of the ride. The trail goes through typical Florida scenery with open pine and palmetto, live oak trees, odd plants and a Cyprus swamp area - where I almost ran over a huge Water Moccasin that slithered across the path

Yes Starkey Park is paved - 6.5 miles through all woods then connects with the Suncoast Trail for those that want to venture further. I believe the Suncoast Trail is like 46 miles long.

I have thought about riding the Suncoast Trail, but it runs parallel to the highway, seems it would get old after a while listening to highway traffic buzzing by. Though it does run all the way to Hwy 98, I've been wanting to ride to Inverness and the only other trail would be the Withlacoochee Trail that I know of. Not planning on doing that ride until this spring, so I have some time to plan it out.

I will be down there in a few weeks for thanks giving, I was planning on Withaloochi trail. The Withaloochi is closer to me, I can almost ride to it from my house. I plan to do the suncoast someday but at this point it is beyond my endurance level.

The neighborhood I live in has access to some trails, so I hopped on the new bike and put about 10 miles on it. Butt is kinda sore since I haven't ridden in about 6 years, but I feel better than I expected. Scenery and weather were beautiful, trees are looking really beautiful in Missouri this year

I believe the Withlacooche Trail is as long as the Suncoast, but at least it goes through a preserve area and is quite peaceful. Just watch out for the Billy Goats and hunters lol.

My hybrid took me on a trip through the living room as it's now affixed to the indoor trainer for the winter months.

The good news is I can do intervals much better than when riding outdoors. Yeah ... like that's fun!
