Mountain Bike Flow Trails Across America
The Moxie van is on the road again. In search of the best flow mountain bike trails from coast to coast of the United States. We choose to look for flow trails because they are fun, fast and generally appeal to most levels of female mountain bikers. From top female mountain bikers to beginner riders there is something for everyone on these trails. The mission for Moxie Cycling is to get more women on bikes and this may give you some ideas of new places to ride.

More than 600 miles of natural surface trails are well maintained and some of the best designed trails you can ride. The Hoosier has many miles of trails available for mountain biking. Terrain on these trails varies from rolling hills and level ridgetops to some very challenging hills and steep slopes in Indiana. Flowy mtb fun at its best. Miles of trails made for that roll like a ride. The adrenaline rush of huge whoops and perfect berms made climbing a breeze. Hoosier National Forest - Bicycling:Mountain Biking (usda.gov)
