    Mid Penn Bike Patrols?

    Driving back from a bay area ride last evening, saw a Mid Penn ranger truck with a bike on the back. Any one see a ranger out on a bike on the trails?

    Go get that KOM "You Deserve" - http://www.digitalepo.com/index.php

    That's probably Jeff. He's the ranger who lives on the property.

    Some of them do have mountain bikes (hardtails, nothing really fancy), but I have not seen one patrolling actively just cruising the trails though.

    I've ridden with the Sheriff a couple times in the last month up in the St. Joes. Super nice guy and his job is riding trails. He has a pretty sweet Carbon Specialized that he said fell of a truck and were unable to locate owner (no serial numbers on the older carbons or something like that). He rides with a loaded pistol which is trippy. He said he isn't out there to write tickets but to just make sure everything is ok...if you see him and his partner (officer), strike up a chat...pretty nice guy.

    See the forum entry, "El Serena Life Flight" , posted by this author. That truck was carrying the downed rider's bike up on El Serena when I passed the scene. The rider was pretty beat up and required a helo lift off the hill.
