Dirt Bike.. Places to ride?

I have been searching for places to go ride, whether I have to pay or not. I like trail riding but tracks are fun too. I have been to Flint Creek, Stoney Lonesome, and The Ridge, all pretty far south of Huntsville. I live in Toney. I wish I had somewhere to ride close by.

Also if people want to go riding. My buddy and I go every so often PM me if you want to tag along sometime.

Thanks

This is the place near HWY 20. Its close to the DUNLOP test track on the other side of the road...

The guy has a pretty decent track. No trails... There is a kids track. It was like $15 for the whole day

From my gut instinct after the temperature drop in the last few weeks, I think we're in for a hard winter. It's already gotten pretty cold to ride when you're at speed.

For sure. I try to ride my Harley to work everyday. This morning was a bit to cold... 40 degrees is not fun.. On my dirt bike is not quite as bad. Easier to stop and warm up, its alot more pysical too. even just trail riding..

Yow! My ears got frostbite just thinking about riding in weather that cold. The most I ever did was about 40kph (yep, kilometers) in 50 degrees, and I was done with frozen ears.

Wow! Well, at least you're ready with winter clothes if we get a good snow storm.

Oh, I didn't mean riding in the snow, just being ready for the cold weather. I rode on my bicycle once during an ice storm. I saw a shiny patch of ice in front of me and then I was on my side with this awful dull aching pain...never again...

Yes, that would be most unpleasant. And I didn't even hit the brakes or anything. Ice is tricky on 4 wheels, but on 2 it's suicide.
