Welcome

Long Live Long Rides
Welcome to the Laurel Highlands On & Off Road Bicycling Association (LHORBA).  We are dedicated to promoting the sport of non-motorized cycling in the Laurel Highlands region of western Pennsylvania.  Regardless of riding abilities or styles, LHORBA promotes responsible and safe riding.

Since 1999 LHORBA volunteers have spent over 10,600 hours maintaining  approximately 230 miles of mountain biking and multi-use trails throughout nearby state parks, state forest, county and municipal parks and private land. 

We are currently involved with the Quemahoning Reservoir mountain bike trail system and when completed may have up to 30+ miles of trails for riders to enjoy.

LHORBA hosts scheduled rides each year in the Laurel Highlands and facilitates many wonderful riding opportunities throughout the region.  Club members will meet new friends and possibly find some new riding buddies along the way.
 

LHORBA’S Participation in Richland Community Days – August 19 & 20
Our club is excited to take part in Richland Community Days again this year!  We will have an information booth and will also be selling tickets for a Cannondale Trail 7 Bike, with all proceeds going to our Children with Special Needs Bicycle Fund for the purchase of an adaptive bicycle for an area child.  Volunteers are needed to work at our booth on Friday, August 19 from 4 - 10 PM and Saturday, August 20 from noon - 10 PM.  If you can help out please email Rich Maher at maher713@atlanticbb.net or call him at 814-242-9041.

LHORBA will be biking in a group in the parade on Saturday morning, so everyone – mountain, road and rail-trail riders are encouraged to participate!  We also have mountain and road bike rides planned for 1:00 PM.

Please watch your email for more detailed information and updates on the event!
