Hi all

I'm very new to biking and although I'm learning lots from this site I still in the dark on some areas. I doI knowthat there are various different types of riding but can anyone clarify what each discipline actually involves eg how does trail riding differ from XC, what does freeriding actually mean, is DH just going from the top of a (presumably steep) hill to the bottom etc
