Over the long July 4th weekend I got to bike for the first time at Markham Bike Trails. Wowsa. what awesome MTB trails. I didn't hit every trail, but pretty challenging double black trails, and super fun and flowy blue intermediates. I'll be back.

I'm still on my old clunker Trek Gary Fischer Marlin from 2012. I ordered a new Trek last month so gotta wait a few months for that to come in. But, been biking a ton. Wickham park 2 or 3 times a week or roadie around town.

This isn't my video but this one shows a complete loop for a bike race with most of the trail covered.

Markham is definitely a fun trail to ride and worth the drive with a group of friends.
Santos was my favorite go to when I was riding.
Last time I was at the Grapefruit Trails they have been seriously upgraded!

Yes, Grapefuit is a full on great park now. I'm waiting for my new bike to come in before hitting it. Can't do it on a clunker. I rode Turkey Creek/Malabar scrub trails last weekend. That is a very good MTB trail and now is hooked up to grapefruit.

I've been biking Wickham park mostly. It has ten miles of single track. Fun and great exercise.

I got my new bike from Bob's Bicycle Shop today. It is like riding on a cloud. I've never had full suspension or a nicer bike like this.
Trek Fuel EX7. Riding it for first time this evening at Wickham.

That looks like a damn fine bike.
First mountain bike I had was a late '80's stumpjumper.
They have come a long way from that!
