Come join us and ride your tandem or single bike on easy to moderate single track trails or the optional rail trails in the Alleghenies in Hesston, PA.
The trails were built by the Army Corp of Engineers at the Lake Raystown location with the help of IMBA & RMBA, the local mountain bike club. They were finished in 2009 and continue to grow at a fast pace in popularity every year. Allegrippis trails have a pump track like feel, are well designed, marked and sustainable trails that overlook Lake Raystown and the Dam. Obstacles are few and far between with stacked loops so that the ride options/lengths are endless with “easy” ways out. What they lack in technical, they make up in their smooth, rolling, rhythmic roller coaster feel ride with beautiful views of Lake Raystown. The Allegrippis Trails are easy to moderate wider single track and are listed at the top of places to mountain bike.
In addition to the single track mountain biking trails, are two nearby rail trails, one is 34 miles and the other 12 miles round trip, plus hiking options in the area.
The ETOR officially begins on October 14th with a Friday afternoon ride and Saturday and Sunday morning rides. Rally coordinators, Brenda and Larry Isherwood, will arrive a day early on Thursday & will host a pre-rally mountain bike ride. Feel free to come early or stay late – there is plenty of riding & other outdoor activities to do & see in the area!
We will have tandem rentals available from Alex at MTB Tandems. Please contact Alex in advance since there will be a limited amount available. If you purchase a tandem within 30 days of the event, the rental fee will be waived.
