Mountain Biking

Current Coordinator(s): Jason Miller <jay.miller.mse@gmail.com> and Lenny Lucas <lenny.lucas@gmail.com> 
Bikes + Woods = Mountain Biking.  There are a variety of different disciplines of "mountain biking" (cross country, downhill, freeride, all mountain,...racing, fun-riding,...) and many of them are readily available in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.  In my opinion, Pittsburgh is one amazing city for Mountain Biking as there are so many different trail systems from 10 minutes to 2 hours away from the city.  If you're interested in learning more, see some information below, contact the coordinators, email the list-serve, check the calendar, take the Mountain Bike School,... and above all get out there and ride!
