If you're stuck stateside for Springbreak this year don't despair, there's plenty of awesome spots to ride!

Cleveland, Ohio might not sound like the most glamorous place for a spring getaway, but a trip to Ray's Indoor Mountain Bike Park will surely change your mind. The Powers Bike Shop fam has been taking an annual  trip to ride Rays for many years now, and it's SO worth the drive. Rays has everything from foam pits to a rhythm section to a pump track. We guarantee you'll go home beat from a great ride whether you stay one day or one week.

The Powers Bike Shop Crew has long looked forward to the annual Fourth of July Race at South Park, but there are also tons of other great spots to ride in Pittsburgh, PA. Pittsburgh is a city that will grow some hair on your knuckles to be sure, but yinzers will never be out a great spot to ride , rain or shine. When you finally make it to the Wheel Mill with grandiose ideas of giving Chris Doyle a run for his money, don't catch yourself being left out in the cold for lack of a helmet!

This half-face helmet from Shadow is nicely priced, super comfortable and surpasses industry safety standards.

Who knows maybe you'll even ride a bit more like Jason Watts if you do!
