Hey all you mountain bikers in the ‘Cuse: looking for trails? If you’re new to riding dirt (as I am) or if you just moved to CNY (welcome!), here’s a great website to help you find new places to roll your knobbies: Cycle-CNY.com. Their trailmaps page showcases some of the best singletrack in the area; I got a chance to ride some of Shindagin Hollow last weekend and it’s awesome!
To their list I’d add two locations that are very close to Syracuse and geared towards beginners: Green Lakes State Park in Fayetteville and Great Bear in Fulton. Both spots have fun trails that aren’t super-technical and are great for building skills and fitness.
