Hi there,

My name is Bradley and I need a new hobby. Mountain biking seems fun, but I need equipment. I'm not sure what type of terrain I'll be riding. I'm from Baltimore, MD and want a place to ride not too far from here. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to bike and what sort of bike and equipment I'll need for the terrain that I'll find? I'm willing to spend a decent amount of money, as I realize it can be an expensive sport.

Any help is much appreciated.
