What area in the triad is best to live if you like to ride your bike or run? Looking for an area with decent schools located close to good riding and running areas. I plan to move when my son leaves middle school in a couple of years.

Road biking or Mountain biking? BurMill park on 220 N in Greensboro has a great off-road trail. It also has a paved green way which goes from BurMill down to Country park on Battleground, check that area out, it's really nice. I used to love riding down there when I lived in Greensboro. Also, in that general vicinity, there is Owl's Roost off-road trail which is a bit rooty but yet pretty nice, not as hardcore as Burmill but nice, it's on Lake Brandt road right after it joins Lawndale. I love the North side of Greensboro, you can ride your road bike on any of those country roads also. Cheers!

Default good info

thanks! I am planning a move in a couple of years, and Greensboro is sounding better all the time. I live in Dallas right now, and other than White Rock Lake, there is not much close by for riding (road or mountain).

I did visit the in-laws in Lexington on Thanksgiving, and had fun on their mountain bike trails. Of course, they were muddy, and I probably shouldn't have, but hey, I carried that bike all the way from Texas!

I just realized I made a mistake. The off-road trail at BurMill park is called Owl's Roost trail, the one on Lake Brandt road is called Reedy Fork trail. I'm sorry, I got the names confused. Anyway, You'll love Greensboro area if you're into outdoors and also if you don't mind driving, you can get to really hardcore trails in about an hour drive west. Good luck!
