Reading PA Mtn Biking
Moving to Reading PA in September and was wondering where the good biking is? I have read about Blue Marsh and French Creek....where else? Also are there group rides (road or mtn)...Thanks in advance, Andy
Blue marsh is 30+ miles of non technical but strenuous singletrack one big loop.
French Creek is a maze of rocky technical, some off limts to bikes.
Jim Thorpe and rattling Creek are under 1.5 hours away.
check jbmountainbikes.com for group rides, not sure if they still have them.
mt. penn is right in reading. there are some nice (albeit confusing) trails up on there! if you like to get you freeride on just figure out how to get up to the pagoda and look around in the woods throughout that area for some gnarly DH style stuff with drops and stuff.
so much good riding in that area but you really need to meet some locals and have them show you around! lots of it is just unmarked trail that is well worth riding.
