Neversink Mountain is a mix of terrain, everything from wide gravity railroad beds to tight slightly off-camber singletrack to loose rocky descents. With the new and improved bridges that BAMBA (Berks Area Mountain Biking Assoc.) installed on the Klapperthal side of the mountain a handcyclist can do this entire loop independently.
This loop is full of beautiful lookouts and lots of local history and is right next to the City of Reading but once in the woods you feels like you’re a million miles away.
Come give it a try!!!! It’s awesome!!!!!
