I do alot of mountain biking around my area, mostly the Thun Trail and Blue Marsh. The Thun Trail is mostly flat and you can mostly go for distance down to Birdsboro. Blue Marsh has trails with a greater level of difficulty. Either way its fun being out in the woods for a few hours he,he...

Annie, Although we both ride Specialized off road now, the Mrs previously had a raleigh. Unfortunately it was stolen. She loved that bike. For the price I think they are the way to go. They make a nice light aluminum frame hardtail probably in your price range. We have the same problem in Florida during the winter. It's scary on the roads with all the old people. Good luck...

Bad Annie,

We are far from being experts, but we can tell you that we have been very happy with our Specialized brand bikes. We have the Expedition model, and they have been good for both on and off road riding.

You can see their line at Specialized(dot)com and we bought ours at a local (Trappe, PA) store called Bikesport. (Lifetime annual tuneups come standard from these folks.)

Hope this helps!

OFRD,

"Mountain" biking is certainly a whole other game here in florida! Full suspension is definitely the way to go here, what with palmettos, oak roots, and various critters on the trails. I put time on my road bike, just so I can ride without having to cope with roots on the trail!

Hope you have fun on the bike while you're visiting our state!

We bought a pair of Mountain Bikes for a birthday two years ago and we are fortunate enough to live near the Perkiomen Trail. This meanders from Green Lane. PA, through Valley Forge, all the way to Philadelphia, PA. Road bikes do well on this trail as well since most of it is paved.

We also make trips out to Dutch Country, and have gone riding around areas with fascinating names like, Blue Ball, Bird-in-Hand, and Intercourse! LOL Actually these are very nice trips, with some challenging hills and beautiful scenery.

We are always looking for riding companions, so if you are in the area and want to touch base, drop us a note.

We are fortunate to live right next to an 1800 acre state preserve. We have a great bunch that get out cross country 2-3 times a week. We meet up, ride for a couple hours, or as long as it stays light (early and late season). Then usually have a couple beers, BS a little, and home for a good nights sleep. We'll try and get out on the road during the week, when we can.

Last season was a bust for me (he). I got caught up in the work way too much. Lost fitness and felt like crap. Right now we are stuck in FL for a couple more weeks, and can't wait to get home. The old people will mow you down like a weed. And I'm not kidding. So it's been urban assault on the singlespeed for me right now. The Mrs runs 5k's, so I'm chasing her around a bit to get ready for spring. So with a jumpstart on this season I'm feeling good.

I'll know more after this weekend. A friend of ours who wins her sport class regularly is coming down this weekend. She and I are hitting the so called Mt bike park in Laudedale. She's been training this winter so it should be interesting.
