    New question here. Rides around Butler, PA over T-Giving?

    I'm travelling up to Butler, PA sometime Wed morning the 24th and leaving Sat 11/27 around noon. Are there any group rides going on in the area?
    Where are some of the better riding areas within a half hour or less drive time?
    I've heard something about trails at Moraine State Park, anyone have a link?

    I'd prefer offroad but I can bring my 'cross or road bike if that's what the groups are doing and I have lights so night rides are an option.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes there are trails in Moraine State Park, I can not give you exact directions because I have only been there a few times and do not know the names of any roads. Check out PORC (Pittsburgh off road cyclist) and they may have some rides out there scheduled.

    Some other rides (farther than your 1/2 hr time frame but still reasonable) around that area are,
    2 mile run and Kenerdale both in the Franklin area
    Brady's Run in Beaver

    Monty,

    I recall your name from racing with WERA. I am relatively new to mountain biking but live close to Butler. I really don't know of any group rides. However, if you're interested in meeting at Morraine I'd be happy to ride the trail with you.

    Drop me an e-mail, collettedave@yahoo.com , if you're interested.

    Dave
