Local Info

Reading is an emerging as an epicenter for mid-atlantic mountain biking. Hosting five trail networks within 15 miles of the city center Reading has a vast variety of riding to suit all abilities and genres of mountain biking.

Food & Drink

The Canal Street Pub - canalstreetpub.com/
This former home for Reading Hardware Company is now a great place to park and start/finish your exercise in the Reading area. Access to the Neversink trail network is a meager five minute trip from here.
The beer selection is always deep with a solid rotating tap and bottle selection. Ask for the regular bottle list for even more choices. The Growlers (burgers) and the Hostile Mussels are a must! The kitchen will even cater to Vegetarians and Vegans.

Mike's Tavern - Another supporter of the local IMBA chapter (BAMBA). The owner Pete is a an avid outdoorsman and his bar is the quintessential town bar. Catering to local factory workers for years Mike's tavern has a great collection of local memorabilia. Great microbrews on tap an in the fridge. Feeling brave? Sample the homemade boilo.

Visiting Tips

Conditions permitting, we use the trails all year round. As most of the Mid-Atlantic, the Fall along with the turning of the leaves is arguably the most picturesque. Check our average annual weather stats: weather.com/weather/wxclima…
