Hilly terrain, beginners might find themselves tired.

 

There will be a car spotted for the return trip- so this is a one way ride. I will provide transportation back to your car.

    I realize that part of this ride is on the rail trail but can a road bike be used.

  • melissa

    Sounds like fun! How will transport look like up to starting point? Anyone heading up from NYC I can catch a ride with?

    • AliciaDevero

      Yep, same here - I do not rent bikes ... Period! Last time I have done it at Jim Thorpe my neck hurt for two weeks - my baby travels with me! :) Chris I will definitely take you on your offer on the Pick up :)

      July 13, 2013

    • AliciaDevero

      Can u confirm it?

      July 13, 2013

  • Laura

    Is this something my hybrid bike could handle or does this require a mountain bike?

    July 12, 2013

    • AliciaDevero

      Laura, I don't know the trail, but based on my own experience (I would never buy a hybrid but my friend did :) he was able to bike along with me even in the forest on the advanced MTB trail in Pine Hill Park in Rutland, VT. What Chris described is not even remotely close to qualify for an advanced trail so it will be a piece of cake for you :)

      July 12, 2013

    • Chris Baker

      Hybrid, mountain, road bikes should all be fine.

      July 12, 2013

  • Ben Cozzi
