Hey all,
I'm fairly new to the sport. I've ridden at Frick maybe 2 or 3 times, mostly Iron Gate, and I've gotten lost onto a few other trails that I don't eve know the names of. I'm looking to build my skill and also just my trail knowledge, so if anyone is interested in maybe showing me around and/or showing me some tips and pointers I'd be down. I'm trying to get up to speed enough so I can start doing the level 2 rides which opens a lot more options. I'm looking to go tomorrow, 8/25, but if you read this in the future and are interested, then let me know and I'm sure I'll still be interested. Thanks!]]>

Looking to by a decent mountain bike for my 12yo son. A hardtail is most likely what will fit our budget. Frame size around a 17"-16" +/- should work (yes he is very tall !). 26er, 29er, whatever, as long as it has two wheels.

Components don't need to be anything special. All bikes will be considered (even ones that need work if the price is right). Let me know what you have and what you want for it.]]>

There are some XC trails in Ohiopyle (pretty close to Fallingwater) and I believe some at 7 Springs too. Ohiopyle is an awesome place to visit if you've never been there (waterfalls, great hiking, all things outdoorsy). As for a place to stay, you could always pitch a tent or use an Adirondack shelter on the Laurel Highlands trail which starts at Ohiopyle. Hope this helps. We are!]]>
Riding near Fallingwater? sdberman

My wife and I are going to be in the area after dropping our kids off at Penn State and Pitt. We'd like to visit Fallingwater and while we're there, do some riding. We've ridden Allegrippis several times and that would be perfect, but it's kind of far from Fallingwater. Can anyone recommend any flowy, fun, not too technical riding near Fallingwater? Also, can you recommend any places to stay? Thanks!]]>

How are the trails looking out there? Don't want to ride them if I have a good chance of completely tearing due to the rain we've had]]>

There are quite a few places to choose from. When you're in town, do you know where you will be staying?

Hey guys just wanted to drop everyone a line. I'm new to the area here and finally have a rig. I was looking for some folks to do southpark with... maybe a group ride. I'm going to be off for the whole week and was looking to get into only moderate trouble so I figured a slower group ride would be fun! If anyone is interested maybe we can get a little group together!
