    Hi all,

    I'm new to cycling, and need some help. I have all the gear, but I just don't have anywhere to bike! I live very far out into the country, and my parents won't let me ride on the road, since it's a highway. Where could I ride at.

    I have a mountian bike by the way.:)

    Why do you want to ride on a highway? I always choose a route with less traffic as possible and 90% of the time I ride on local roads. I don`t know how many local roads with less traffic do you have in the States. Here in Europe we have plenty because of a lot of villages.

    MTB? Ride offroad!:)

    Buy a trainer that you can mount your bike onto. I have a cycleops, they're great for indoor riding especially if I decide to go riding and its late at night. Invest in one, its worth it! Just note that some of them can be noisy, try avoiding ones that work with a fan.:)
