that mountain biking is more fun (at least for me). Have been riding on the road for the last 10 years (and did a little mountain). This winter hitting the trail every weekend (used to ride on road in winter) but not so windy in the woods. The trail riding is just more fun. The trail I ride does not have any logs and has just enough roots and rocks to keep things interesting. I have a Santa Cruz nomad and it is all fun. Went road riding this season as well and it is just not the same, especially the cars. Will probably have to switch back to road once the ticks get active. Oh well.
