    LBS recommendation

    Welcome to the Philly 'burbs. I work in Exton, and can recommend Beans Bikes on Rt.30 in Paoli (about 5 or so miles from Exton). There is also Exton Bikes and Bike Line right on Rt 30 near the Exton mall. I've done some business with Exton Bikes, but there's just something about Bike Line that turns me off. I'm sure others have had good experiences, so I figured I'd toss that option out for you to consider. If you're looking for a big box store, there's a Performance Bike in Paoli, less than a mile from Beans.

    As for trails, the previous poster hit on most of what's local. If you wanted to venture more towards Philadelphia, there's Wissahickon and Belmont. I've also ridden Evansburg (see the trail reviews section), but it's off the beaten path and not a very long trail.

    form exton your best bets are fairhill to the south and french creek to the north.

    going south or west trails get pretty hilly and tech. too the south more flowy and smooth.

    You're about 5 miles further west of Exton. The same recommendations apply. You can also check the trail reviews section for places in Lancaster County. It's not too far to make it worthwhile for a decent trail.
