Long time readers have read about my rides. I have ridden the cream of the crop marquee trails throughout the US during this odyssey. Along the way I rode unknowns locally known, something that is where to take riders to show the goods of your area. Last year in Arkansas I got passed on to several local groups riding local stashes. Riders encountered are almost always local, they might know the history of the trail which is enlightening to me. I share my stories and lessons learned. Local undiscovered good stuff can be better than the marquee rides even in that area. I have shown you mine, now I am asking you to show me yours.
My question: What is the signature local ride in your area that you really like and ride often? Perhaps I could share my experience riding that trail. Please match your recommendation to my riding skills.
OK, my turn.
For Spokane area I recommend MT Coeur d’Alene for backwoods legacy trail riding. Closer in is Beacon which is a warren of trails offering challenges. Riverside Park is a place to pedal w/ literally miles of trails to wear you out. MT Spokane has big elevation gain w/ fun descents.
