What we're about

This is a group for anyone who has the desire to explore the many "rails to trails" bike paths and/or other more leisurely bike routes (weekdays, weeknights, and weekends) with a nice group of friends within a reasonable driving distance of the Southern Chester County/Wilmington/Philadelphia base area. Bike pace might vary according to terrain, but basically a nice leisurely safe pace where we can get some great photos or just picnic for a while. Some of these rides include the Schuylkill River Trail (Philadelphia), Perkiomen Trail (Oaks), New Hope area trails, Heritage Rail Trail (York), Struble Trail ( Downingtown ). All members will be able to suggest rides they wish to do by using the suggestion area on the group site. We will also do trips to central and western PA which have many incredible rails to trails rides as well. There will also be weekend bike riding adventures. Some of these include the C&O Canal, Pine Creek Rail Trail (Wellsboro ), and Greenbrier River Trail ( WV ). These will involve bike camping and/or car camping. We will also meet on occasion to plan events and give members a chance to suggest rides they would like to do. Looking forward to meeting other people who are also outdoor biking enthusiasts.
