Would anyone attend if I organized a road trip to Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park? It is not everyone’s cup of tea, even among die hard mountain bikers, but it’s worth a trip at least once to check it out.

I am absolutely down for RAYS and meeting some new people from the board. CBurch and i went out last year once,had a great time.I make regular trips to Cleveland actually, usually on Megabus though as i don’t drive.My schedule isn’t exactly normal though and my days off are Wed-Fridays…So if anyone ever wants to go on one of those days, i’m down,willing to pitch in for gas,etc.

5 Boro ride is fun, but with the cap limit and ‘lottery system’ now to get a place on it kinda makes me lose interest..But planning a trip around it would be fun. I lived in Brooklyn until i was 9 or so and went back a few years ago for the ride with Stef B. and a group with Venture Outdoors when Seth worked for them. The bus ride was fun as he kept all of us entertained, on the trip as well. I love NYC so much and everything about it so i’d never turn down a trip back.

Come to think of it, i was going to go to Cleveland for Thurs and Friday and hit up Rays since my friend is working. But if anyone wants to go up Friday for the day i’d be willing to do that too.

I wouldn’t mind doing PNBR again. @joeframbach and I did a 3-man road trip to Philly in 2011, just two of us on the return trip. Usually late August, early September.

Or Chicago’s NBR, which is in June, same weekend as a bunch of others. Philly is alone with its date.

Don’t forget the wheel mill is in town and just opened their amazing new pump track! It’s not as flashy as rays since they are just starting out, but its a hell of a lot more convenient.

Im there at least a couple times a week. Usually at least Monday and Thursday. I’m trying to go 3-4 days a week now that the pump track is open though.

Also Cleveland (among other places, Detroit, Columbus, Indianapolis, Mansfield (!)) has a hostel. Which Pittsburgh doesn’t. The destination point of the GAP trail. No hostel. People. http://theclevelandhostel.com/
