With vast prairies, rolling forested hills, and tranquil lakes, the diversity of mountain biking terrain in the Midwest will surprise even the fat tire elite. We promise you'll discover more than single-track winding through endless cornfields. Home to some of the best family-oriented trails around, Midwest mountain biking also possesses great white-knuckle, teeth-rattling rides. You won't find dicey rides teetering on the brink of thousand-foot cliffs, but you will encounter trails as technically challenging as anywhere else in North America. Authors Richard Ries and Dave Shepherd live and ride in the Midwest, and they've uncovered trails to suit every mountain biker's ability and tastes. If it's good riding in Ohio, Indiana, or Illinois, it's in here. Each route profile features at-a-glance key information, a thorough ride description, a detailed trail map, helpful sources of information, proximity of important services, valuable commentary on elevation changes and possible hazards.
