well, i'm back in Germany now, but i was in Philly for 2 weeks around xMas and rode Wissahickon about 6 times plus French Creek... you guys got some decent trails right in the city! (better than my "backyard": Munich's in-town trails along the Isar River)
i rode a few times with Psycle Man (Andy) from the forum and i know he will be riding more - try sending him a PM (although i think he's not on BF too often).
and my brother-in-law lives in Chestnut Hill and will be riding Wissahickon a lot (he's a fit guy and i really got him interested/motivated to ride more as he lives like a mile from the park). if you PM me i could forward his email (he's a semi-pro inline skater so very fit - on the bike he is fit and skilled but not as good as the really experiences "racer" types)
there's a group from Kesswick cycle (Brian and Dann) that meets i think on Saturday mornings early (7am i think) to ride Wissahickon - although they are mostly really fit and experienced riders (a bunch of racers), but i rode with them and they are all very cool...
but you guys have the winter easy! all but the lowest wimpy trails out here are deep under snow - i ride with studded tires, but deep powder is still not possible!
