    Default Who else rides long distance in Pennsylvania

    Just curious if anyone in PA rides lengthy distances like me... Kinda boring doing it for so long by myself, let me know where your at and where you wanna ride.

    I too have ridden alone a lot on longer rides. While it may not be close for you depending on where you will be coming from in PA, the Baltimore-Washington International Airport has a flat half-marathon length trail I've been meaning to try. Others have mentioned going to this trail as well and I'm aiming to go there sometime fairly soon. Can't hurt to share! Check out the Mid-Atlantic forum too, might be some riders closer to you there.

    Two questions:

    What area of Pennsylvania?

    What kind of long distances are we talking about?

    The harrisburg area, I live a little north so there's a ton of back roads with unlimited length. I ride 8-10 miles day, but like I said there are unlimited roads to kick on.

    So speaking of skating distance in Pennsylvania.

    Myself and two other riders skated from Philadelphia to Valley Forge and back within five an a half hours this past Saturday.

    Great time. I believe the two riders are planning to do it again this Friday.
