    New question here. Where can I ride my freeride/downhill bike?

    Hey. I just got first DH bike. The only place I know to use it is Mountain Creek / Diablo. I've been there this summer. Where else can I ride my DH bike? Looking for mountain trails and Resorts?

    I am from Central Jersey and wouldn't mind going to neighboring states.

    THANKS.

    Hook up with the crew in east stroudsburg, awsome scene at glen park and the boilerworks. A little further west and you have south mountain. You also have the proving grounds in dirty jersey.

    I have had recent discussions with the owner of a ski resort in the Poconos about putting in a lift access bike park in the near future. They are looking for ways to increase their income, especially in the offseason. I pitched the idea and they are tossing it around, so we as riders need to show our support and interest in a local feature such as this. I posted a thread in this forum entitled "Pocono Bike Park?", and I'm looking for everyone who has an interest in it to place a post. I too need places to ride a big bike and dread driving the 2 hrs to Diablo. A park located closer to SE PA would be awesome so I ask anyone reading this to go to the above mentioned thread and show some support.

    Where is south mountain? I am in Bloomsburg (a little further west) and would be interested in checking it out. Thanks.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    What happened to Duryea in Reading? I thought I was told about a course at Bear Creek ski area near Macungie too, but that might've been speculation.
