Join the Pennsylvania Environental Council for the Public Lands Ride! 

This is a non-competitive mixed-surface event that will take place at Black Moshannon State Park and the surrounding Moshannon State Forest on Saturday, September 17, 2022. There will be three different marked courses -- 65 mile, 42 mile, and 22 mile --- all of which feature rolling climbs from rhododendron-filled stream valleys to open plateau views and a mix of gravel and snowmobile trail terrain. The 22-mile route is a great option for anyone newer to the gravel scene as the climbs are mostly very mellow and it's almost entirely smooth, maintained gravel roads. Meanwhile, the 62-mile route offers tougher climbs, more chunky bits and all the highlights of the area. And of course the 45-mile route is a nice middle ground. For those of you who have done this event in the past, routes are very similar but mostly not exactly the same as previous years. 

Aid stations will be placed every 15-20 miles. Coffee and a light breakfast will be provided the morning of the event, and post-ride food will be served. 

On Friday evening, join Nittany Mountain Works for a casual ride (1-2 hours) and check out the 100% solar-powered workshop. Ride start time TBD. 

All proceeds benefit the work of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, which facilitates trail planning, land conservation, outdoor recreation, reforestation, water protection and more across the state. We thank you for your support!
