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.
