newbie from pa

hey everyone. my name is John Smith and all my info is in my profile. I am here because i used to ride a lot when i was young, bmx and jumping and stuff. I haven't ridden a bike in about a year and haven't traveled off the beaten path(on a bike) in at least 5 years. I want to get back into it and i want advice on a bike to purchase. thats basically why i'm here

it def is still breathtaking, and getting better. they're are so many beautiful over looks, and trails with amazing views. they're actually looking to opening more of their trails to bikes.

Hi John,
Welcome to the Forums!
I try, and ride the trail around Ohiopyle a couple times a year. Really nice scenery on that trail. There's a little deli / store (name escapes me) that makes a really great Buffalo Chicken Fajita which I have enjoyed a couple times.
Hope you get a bike soon, and enjoy the heck out of it.
Denny

Hello John, a lot of PA folks here at Bike Forums, and there's only a few who have found you yet. Enjoy the bike research, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Sometimes the 'search' function doesn't work, so head to Google and type in your question, and focus on the bikeforums search results.

Welcome to BF!
