    Any Trails Rideable

    I was just wondering where everyone is riding. Is anything rideable? Look for something in Eastern PA. Thanks for any help.

    Why don't you guys buy some snowboards or skis? Stop fighting our seasons and start loving them!! That's why they make rollers!

    Nothing in South Central or Eastern PA that's for Sure (Lancaster, Lebanon, Berks, Chester County)
    And now that we just got between 8-10" of snow, it's gonna be a while!

    Got-Bike, I agree CC or BC is the perfect compliment to Mtn biking.to me the snow is a very welcome break from riding by spring I'm all stoked to be on a bike again,a break from riding is sometimes necessary to keep the passion alive.

    I'm hoping to maybe just get in a lame dirt road / rail trail ride this weekend. Anyone know if the trails across from the Berwick nuke plant are rideable? Otherwise it's probably the Roaring Creek 8 mile road for me.

    Nothing ridable in southeastern or east-central PA (Bucks-Montgomery or Lehigh Valley). Got hit with about 15" in Quakertown, Upper Buck Co. yesterday alone.

    What kind of riding is out by the nuke plant? Rail trails, roads, single track?

    Yes

    There are walking paths that are usually plowed, plenty of bridge crossings, plowed roads through the woods, some fast somewhat like singletrack down by the River, theres also a rail trail that starts there and runs out to the Garden Drive Inn, around 12 miles long.

    There's not to much to ride right now with all the snow we got lately.

    I'm open to Saturday or Sunday,

    Sunday looks like the nicer of the two.

    Saturday- Chance of snow, High of 34 degrees
    Sunday- Times of Clouds and Sun, High of 34 degrees

    I just confirmed with a coworker that the Lehigh Valley Gorge is well packed down by Snowmobiles, that could turn into a nice long scenic ride.

    He said it not like a highway either, only saw 3 small groups of Snowmobiles last weekend.

    You could start in the Middle at Rockport and ride up to White Haven, or go to Jim Thorpe, or start at White Haven and ride to Rockport.

    Just throwing it out there as a idea.

    Just got back from a ride at the nuke plant - there's not a whole lot of trail that is plowed or rideable - rode quite a bit of trail that was marginally rideable. Was originally planning on going back tomorrow, but think I'll pass.

    Have any of you actually ridden over snow mobile tracks? I understand to a degree your desperate need to ride but there are alternatives,just returned from a another day of epic BC skiing,anyone who mtn bikes is doing themselves a great disservice by not taking advantage a great alternative to riding,it's everything mtb is just on skis.

    Thanx for the report Jonzy. I guess I'll take a pass then also.

    Sorry to ear about the conditions at the Nuke Plant, and the fact that no one else is riding.

    I might hit up the Gorge Trail on Sunday, no way I'm sitting home riding the couch.


    Took a ride today started off at Kirby Park.


    A Fire Trucksley



    Rode through the park, then hit up all the trails behind the park.

    Words of wisdom.



    Down by the River


    Shhh be very very quiet, Pugsley Tracks



    By the Train Bridge.





    Went out to the end of the Dike by the Cross Valley, rode the Dike back, then went over Main Bike to see Chuck, and get my Salsa Q.R. for the Pugsley.

    Cannon by the 109th Armory.

    Don't get me wrong, I still had a good time, and if it was closer than a 30min drive would go again tomorrow. Maybe it's time for a fatbike

    Yes, I've heard of this strange sport skiing that you speak of, in fact it seems that about this time ever year someone wishes to educate us about its virtues. I doubt that I speak solely for myself when I say that it is not lack of interest, but rather lack of capital required to invest in yet another hobby that precludes me from taking up the sport.......and I'm perfectly happy shreddin snow
