Where to Ride?
2. Local rides
This is more or less the recreational afternoon
riding on your local backyard dusty tracks and the most
common one. People used only to jog, but today more and
more are using off-road riding as daily dose of
recreation, since pedaling is more user friendly to
knees for example..
You can use the neighbor woods for your every day
riding. You'll be surprised just how much trails there
are, made by dog walkers. You should be careful though,
not to rush on these trails and cause accidens. Be
nice to walkers, greet them when you meet them, etc.
Buy a topo map of the area, so that you can find some
hidden trails as well. Or even better, make a map by
yourself - explore the area peace by peace and draw
everything, indicate the distances, etc.
