There are 33 miles of smooth, fast, flowing trails surrounding Raystown Lake, the largest lake in Pennsylvania. They range from beginner to expert level in three stacked loops, making for endless combinations. This sustainably-built trail system is open year-round to all users, is owned by the Friends of Raystown Lake, and is maintained by the volunteer efforts of the Raystown Mountain Biking Association.
Dirt Fest is here — and we’re ready to get dirty at Dirt Rag Magazine’s epic annual celebration of mountain biking in the hilly and lush region of Raystown Lake, PA.

If you are attending, then swing by the Osprey Packs Dirtfest booth for some of the following: (more…)

Freedom to roam has a very different meaning in Scotland than it does in the United States. In Scotland you can walk, mountain bike or ride a horse on any and all land — public or private, as long as you do so without damaging it. This is meaningful because it means, if you know where to go, there are trails and routes “up there in them hills.”
So, naturally, we got off the marked trails and with the help of our new friends (an amazing community of Scots who have lived in the Borders Region for their entire lives) we were treated to some spectacular riding — unmarked, undocumented and completely legal.
Three sure-fire ways to recover from jet lag…
- Mountain Biking: Two wheels and tacky trails
- Coffee and Cake
- Whiskey Tasting
Our trajectory to Scotland felt like traveling into the future, or maybe the past – but instead of a clean break, we lost half a day, never saw the sun go down and arrived in Scotland after close to 24 hours of consistent daylight. Exhausted but invigorated, we did our best to beat jet lag. Our first full day in Peebles, Scotland, located in the Borders Region just 40 kilometers south of Edinburgh, presented us with relatively clear skies and loads to explore.
Did you get a little labor back into your Labor Day? 50 miles of single track with more then 6,275 feet of elevation change should do it. How about riding it in just under 3.75 hours. Perfect amount of labor for your Labor Day.
That is just what the riders in the 10th annual Dakota Five-O Mountain Biking Race did this Labor Day weekend. We were on board welcoming the riders into the finish line and sharing Osprey’s spirit of adventure and mountain biking. The race is an epic event that you just have to witness to understand the undertaking of the Five-O.
The 50-mile mountain bike race began in Spearfish, South Dakota and wound its way through the northern Black Hills.The ridge riding along the Dakota Five-O trail is very technical single track, challenging some of the most advanced riders. The riders started off with a Smokey the Bear start and quickly gained more than 1,200 feet of elevation in a little less than 1/2 mile of jeep trail. This section separates the riders allowing for more room entering the 45 miles of single track.
