    The top reasons to choose cleveland as a trials town....

    1, edgewater state park. Lakefront breakwall, over a mile long..made of huge boulders
    2, gordon park (cleveland lakefront state park) lakefront breakwall, over a mile long, huge boulders
    3, Rays indoor Mountain bike Park www.raysmtb.com
    4. Downtown
    5. Urban Wasteland
    6. MLK cultural Gardens
    7. Olmsted Falls community park
    8. CSU

    These are just the spots within 20 minutes of my house.

    Also the community is cool here.

    You should come up for a visit. I could show you around. Visit the bikepark, hit some of our spots before the snow flies.

    Yes, a lot of people lost their jobs when big steel left town, but it's not like the place is a dump or anything. Cleveland has a lot of character. I love it here.

    Trials-online....who are you? and have we met? PM me.

    There were alot of riders in Cleveland before I left for the Army last year. I have been out of the loop for about 2 or 3 years now but really want to get back into it. I think I will check that MTB park out when I go home on leave in December. I know Rob Ponti is still riding and he was one of the guy that started riding in the area back about 6 years ago when we got it started.

    Urban Yes the whole city has a lot of urban riding in it. Downhill not sure where you could go for that though.

    Dood, Whats up ray!?! When will you be back in town? It was great to see you over x-mas....

    I'm rolling on Ponti's old monty... the other day in cleveland I was flagged down (with my monty on the roofrack) by a guy named chico, he's back from iraq, and knew all the 'old schoolers'...

    cleveland is definently an up and coming bike town... I can't speak from experience (in trials), but the MTB scene is definently up and coming. CAMBA is definently making ground... I have yet to ride trials outside (ie: gordon park, or edgewater, etc...) but I know that there is always someone to ride with, and my experience is that the trials riders in cleveland are tight, and always down with getting someone out to ride..... great group of guys.

    This is my first post here, and I was going to mention rays MTB park....
    Anyway ray, shoot me an e-mail.
