dirtfestheader2Dirt Fest 2014 Logo_Niner_CH


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. We can’t resist a weekend of single track, clinics by top athletes in the industry, time on the lake, and camping out with our fellow diehard MTB enthusiasts — so we are flying 1,800 miles east from Colorado to join the fun! If you are attending, then swing by the Osprey Packs Dirtfest booth for some of the following:

Osprey Pack Demos: Our 2015 pack lineup for bikes is extensive & comprehensive — but you don’t have to take our word for it! Swing by the Osprey booth to talk with our in-house cycling pack experts to figure out which of our pack options will best enhance your cycling experience.

We’ve got great offerings like the Syncro Series, which features Osprey’s ventilated AirSpeed and is perfect should it get humid on the trail in PA. Also of note is our Escapist Series, highly versatile packs that are full-featured and equipped for a variety of adventures. Be sure to check out the 2015 Zealot, which meets the evolving needs of enduro mountain bike racing. Stop by the booth to see and try out the  fleet of select Osprey packs available for free demo.
