    I just got offered a job outside Harrisburg, PA.

    How is the MTB riding around this area?

    Are there any shuttle or lift access areas for DH?

    If you are moving to Central Pa then you want to set up shop to the West of the city.

    Like in Mechanicsburg or Carlisle......i live in Carlisle and commute about 22-23 minutes to Harrisburg to work. Around harrisburg there isnt much riding but to the south in Michaux/Whiskey Springs there is a ton......and not many riders really. The trails are not over used by any strecth of the imaginiation but there is some really good stuff. Most of it very rocky and very technical......that also keeps the number of riders down.

    Shoot me a PM if you want more info....
