Mountain Team

Guy's Racing Club is populated with mountain bike enthusiasts at all levels. From regular rides in our local parks to regional race events plus epic 24 hour and 50+ miles venues. Some members have goals to just ride and race occasionally, others make serious attempts to champion a race series or experience 24 hour and long distance endurance trials.

Premier events attended by Guys Racing are largely within the Mid-Atlantic Super Series, which includes XC, STCX, and long distance Endurance challenges.

GuysRacing members regularly visit most of the locations listed below. Tempo can vary depending on time of year and mood of group. Team members are encouraged to post and coordinate their training rides on the GuysRacing Listserve.

Wissahickon Valley, Fairmont Park, Phila., PA 
Possibly the best trail network within a big city in the US. Mostly technical climbing and descending on rocky trails. Some flat and gravel sections. Difficult. 
Annual Wiss and Pennypack park pass available for $20. Support the Wiss.

Pennypack, Fairmont Park, Phila., PA 
Fast and twisting singletrack, log crossings, gravel paths and moderate climbs make Pennypack a fun ride. Jump on the paved bike path and ride down to the Delaware for some great scenery. Easy to moderate. Not a good ride when wet.
