A shout out to all mtn bikers

Just curious as to who all are Forest River owners and mtn bikers.

Avid mtn biker here!
Mostly just trails and campgrounds from Mississippi to east Tennessee.
But I hope to expand my travels and trails with my new RockWood 2904SS

Our favorite trails and campgrounds to travel to are..
Raccoon Mtn
Chattanooga, TN

Raccoon Mountain Caverns and Campground


Oak Mountain State Park
Birmingham, Ala

OM campgrounds

Getting too old for much more than high desert fire roads and game trails. But I do enjoy a nice ride in the woods when I can.

PA

A little out of your way, but If you ever get to PA check these places out. They are two of the better trails I've been on. Both single track trails. Jim Thorpe, PA and Wissahicken Park in Philadelphia.

been mtn. biking seriously since 1987. have done some amateur races until the roadies' organization took over the mtn. bike races. no more Clydesdale classes but now have the friggin CAT system.
no way i can compete with a 150lbs. guy!

used to ride in SoCal but now live and ride in NorCal.

currently have a f/s K2 Razorback xc bike, a Giant VT-2 all mountain bike, a K2 4000 f/s buddy bike, a commuter bike and a road bike.
built the xc bike and the road bike myself with a little help from the bike shop in setting up the shifting.

My two mtn bikes include a steel Ibis Mojo from the late 90s and an Ellsworth Truth (FS). One of the main reasons I move from IL to AZ was for the biking! Unfortunately I don't get out as much as I'd like to anymore (damn job!), but this part of the country has some pretty awesome riding opportunities. I know it's quite a trip from where you are, but AZ has free camping (boondocking) all over the state! And, our riding can be year round depending on where you go.

Hey! I've actually been in the N.E. part of PA and upstate NY before.
The guys at Chenango Point System in Binghampton, NY let me barrow an extra mtn bike during my visit.
I made the mistake of going with a group of them on one of their weekly shop rides. Those guys kicked my butt climbing those mtns across the river from the bike store
Also rode at Shindagin outside Ithaca, NY and Oakly Corners State Forest.

Wow, small world!
My daughter lives in Wake Forest, just outside of Raleigh, NC.
I've been up there several times visiting, but haven't had enough time to check out any of the local bike trails.

Don't think you'll be without any bike trails moving to MS.
We've got some good trail systems through out the state.
Inside the city limits of Meridian are the Bonita Trails.
The Ridgeland Trails in N. Jackson, MS
Then the Noxubee Hills Trail System AKA "THE NOX" in Ackerman, MS
I've made a FB devoted to The Nox containing a wealth of trail info and pictures about The Nox.
Noxubee Hills Trail System | Facebook

Also the MSMTB Mtn Bike Forum has a lot of riding info.
msmtb.org • View forum - msmtb.org Forums

The main reason for my purchase of the RockWood 2904SSI is that I might be moving to NC later this spring.
My son has joined the ARMY and will be in Basic Training in SC, then at an Army Base near Norfolk,VA.

I know what you mean about the CAT system.
I got out of XC racing just as the CAT system was starting.
My last XC race was back in 2008 after I placed 2nd on my home turff (The Nox) in the RockCrusher Classic. Beginners Classs 40+

I'm in hopes of moving to the AZ/NM area later in 2013 after my son finishes his Blackhawk helicopter mechanics in VA

The company I work for has bought another company near Tucson.
