We will be meeting my family in PA for Thanksgiving and was looking for some ride suggestions. We will be renting a house in the Poconos, probably around Mt Pocono or Blakeslee and was thinking of riding around Jim Thorpe. I am thinking of doing a ride with my wife and one solo or with a guide (any offers?). My wife hasn't ridden since last year before our second baby so she doesn't want anything too challenging but before the kids she was pretty good (could do small drops, rock gardens, and did well in the Great Glen 24 hr race) so she's not a beginner. I on the other hand can take anything you thow at me! LOL! I grew up in PA but didn't really get into mtn biking until I moved to MA 15 years ago. I consider myslef a very good technical rider but I don't have to have it. I want the most fun trail. My parents live in Clearfield so I when we visit them I try and it up the Allegrippis trails. Those are super fun with zero tech. I can get in 20 miles there in under two hours! Around here a 8mph average is considered fast. So fast and flowy is key. We've got tons of super tech but not much fast and flowy stuff here in MA (VT on the other hand....).
So to sum up, a fun but not too tech ride for me and my wife. Under 10 miles with little climbing (no more than 500'). For me fast and flowy but don't mind the tech or climbs. 15-25 miles or 2-3 hours up to 1500' or so of climbing. I haven't been riding too much with a 23 mo old and a 5 week old running around.
