Join Jim Thorpe residents and National Champion cyclists Liz & Lath Carlson, for a guided mountain bike ride under a colorful canopy of trees! All levels of off-road cyclists are welcome.
Liz will be leading the kinder, gentler of the two adventures. Her ride is for anyone who can ride a bike and is familiar with rail-to-trail travel. Join her as she takes in the fall colors on the scenic Switchback trail.
Lath will be leading more advanced riders on the technical Jim Thorpe classic, Twin Peaks. His ride is for cyclists who have experience navigating rocky singletrack terrain.
If you’d like to experience Jim Thorpe’s autumn magic by bike on the trails Jim Thorpe is famous for, meet Liz & Lath in front of the train station at 2pm, both Saturday and Sunday during Fall Foliage Weekends. Please bring enough water and food for your ride. Each adventure will take between 2-3 hours. (Heavy rain cancels.)
