    Neshaminy High School Tommorow 8/6/2011

    Anyone riding or want to ride there sometime tomorrow? I'd like someone to show me around...or at least someone to get lost with. I have to be home by 5 to please the wife but, anytime is good for me.

    I didn't. it would be cool to get a couple of people together from here to hit it up in the next couple of weeks. any takers?

    I've heard great things about it, too.

    I was there once; loved it. I can't do Saturday morning, but let me know the next time you're thinking about going; I'm always looking for someone to ride with.

    According to this map there is one.
    How does Nesh compare to High Rocks? I'm trying to convince a friend who is die hard High Rocks that there are more trails to life... He doesn't like allot of big climbs {I know doesn't make sense for a High Rocks lover}

    Neshaminy is just as technical as high rocks, but without a lot of the climbing, there are maybe only 2 or 3 big climbs in the park overall.

    I live less than a mile away from that park, and frequent it quite a lot and would be game for a ride there sometime next week. I'd go tomorrow, but I'm looking for a bit of a longer ride...

    Did you go? How was the ride? It's a beautiful day and I'm stuck at work wanting to ride before all the rain moves in...

    It was great! It was just me and OldManBike. Both of us have never been there before so, we did allot of circles and "have we been down this trail before?" conversations. I will definitively be going back again. Well worth the 90 minute drive both ways. And I made a new friend.
    Here's what we did today.

    Sweet. I might actually get there next Saturday, but in the meantime will probably get a ride in at Marsh Creek along with some mileage on the road.

    I might have to give the bowtie another try now that I can actually stop, thanks to my new pads!

    Hey all!

    I am 15min away, and I am usually there between 5-8PM on weekdays. I do about 1.5hrs riding until I'm soaked and then head home. I am totally in love with this course, I can't stay off of it. I hope to do this as many times during the week as I can. On the weekends I am not around to do it. I ride fair hill/Newark area stuff on the weekends.

    My Rockhopper Comp will be here next Tuesday. The wal-mart bike is trash that I was using as a holdover . Idlewood killed that thing QUICK.

    I drive a silver SVT focus and a Black SVT focus. The bike will be red. If you see me say hello! I am getting aquainted with Idlewood quite well.

    I just did Neshaminy this evening; had a great ride, even with the lightning & thunder on top of us. It was only my 2nd time riding there, but I too am in love with the course. HaveBlue83, it's hard for me to get there on the fly, as I live about an hour away, but if I could touch base with you ahead of time I'd love to join you once in a while.

    My cell is 318-787-8017. just text me anytime u are planning on going out there. simplest way of doing it. My name is Brinton / Brit. that or just post up here and I will check it.

    I am def trying to make a habit of riding this. I usually like going alone and zone out, but I can tag along. safety in numbers after all. As soon as Tuesday comes and I get my bike I will bed in the brakes and then I'm off riding till I collapse
