Two fabulous but very different rides start from the Centre County Convention and Visitors Bureau on the Penn State University campus. A short ramble explores the “happy valley” on delightful country roads that constantly roll but never become difficult. The longer challenge climbs Bald Eagle Mountain as a warm-up to an even more difficult assault of the Allegheny Front. A continuous climb of more than 8 miles is required to reach the Allegheny Plateau and the Moshannon State Forest. A welcome rest stop at Black Moshannon State Park offers a chance to “cool off” before traversing Bald Eagle Mountain a second time on the return to State College. After the ride, seek out the Creamery, serving locally made ice cream to Penn State fans and friends for more than a hundred years.
