Monroeville, gotta get invited though. Just ride the park at night and you WILL find people who have hook ups at trails.

I'm real close to you dude actually, I ride the Pittsburgh area real often. The Wheelmill, Imperial Skatepark, Pitcher Memorial Skatepark, South Park Skatepark and race track, etc.

The north hills public bmx trails are decent I believe too, never been there though. There are tons of dudes that kill trails out there, so just try to talk to them and make sure they know you won't fuck the trails and you'll help out and they'll like you, I'm sure. Just be cool lol

Hopefully we can meet up sometime around there.

I go to all of those skateparks too so I've probably seen you before. I mostly skate at parks though I like riding dirt a lot more than parks for bmx. I heard of Monroeville trails but like you said you gotta be invited. If you find any trails nearby let me know and we can ride on day!

Totally dude. I'm actually gonna be starting some out in Bethany in the woods somewhere, It's gonna be rad. I got a few places I wanna make em. So hopefully by mid summer I will have a lot of new stuff to ride and have plenty of people out.

I ALWAYS suggest digging for a FULL DAY to help out, THEN riding when you are new to trails. It's a terrible experience for the trail builders to let someone come out and that someone trashes the place.

DIG BEFORE YOU RIDE.

PICK UP ALL YOUR TRASH.

FIX DAMAGE YOU CREATED.

HELP OUT.

DON'T BRING PEOPLE THERE WITHOUT THE OKAY OF THE MAIN BUILDERS.

Obviously these are for more private or hidden trails, but the rules work all around.

Where's Bethany at? I'm down to help if its not that far from me. And maybe on day you would wanna check out these trails I usually ride. There's like 4 different lines but only 2 are currently running. It's a pain in the ass working by yourself sometimes so I always need help

Totally, I'll be making a trip up there once I'm done with all the work I have.

It's like an hour away from Pittsburgh (if you don't take toll roads, from the center of the city). But Really it's not that far.

What are the trails like? I'm definitely down to help, I love trails and always wanna ride em.

My jumps were torn down that I had so I'm starting bigger and better in the woods now.

Definitely dude, If you can get me some decent directions i'm down to bring some shovels and maybe a few dudes to help and ride.

I just gotta get my license next week, I have been putting it off because school is ending and I wanted to focus on exams and stuff.

Heck yeah dude, I love that. It's probably light as it gets too. Always fun.

I have a custom Funday with mostly Odyssey, Tree, and Gsport parts.

Southpark's the hardest to get to just because of the way to get in.

Roughly an hour and 15 minutes depending on traffic. If traffic isn't bad its like just an hour.

So not bad really. Closest to me is either Imperial or Pitcher. Just because i don't go through the actual city to get there and its real quick.

It takes me like 5 minutes to get to South Park and about like 20 to pitcher park

Well sorry for the thread hijack, but any of you Pittsburgh guys ride street? Any good parking locations or tips on street riding Pittsburgh for the first time? It’s a few hours from me and I’m wanting to mix things up and start riding some new bigger cities/campus’s.

WELL SHIT. JUST SAW JAX BUMPED A 5 year old thread.
