    Idea! Big mOOn Ride 8/4/12 Saturday... Eveyone welcome!

    The Biggie Ride da mOOn for da year...

    ...I have had a few friends who would like to come join us for a great ride, so never rode da moon? Or a long timer vet come join the ride!

    Meet: at Main Gate
    Please arrive early to get ready
    Ride at 12 Noon,(15 minute grace on dirt at 12:15)

    Length: Ride will be longer, using NFS, 5858, Salamander Deacon!

    Pace: moderate, 2 to 3 hours of trail time, depending on size of group.

    Rests: we will stop, wait for the group to reassemble at points. We don't want to loose anyone!

    Halfway Stop: a longer rest stop, I will place a cooler with ice/water at that point, if you would like to put your own cooler there, or bring water drinks feel free! This will be at the upper parking lot by the Marina (aka the Big Stinky Uphill, see on map)

    One thing you can count on is da mOOn has lots of very friendly local riders that care and will help out to make sure everyone has fun, and of course I cannot thank them enough!

    Please be responsible, wear helmet, safety gear, and hydration!

    I have posted a map of the route:

    Hmm, it's almost a 2 hour drive from Dingmans Ferry but I think I might be able to make it that weekend.

    Just want to confirm...I've never been there before and I'm a beginner / pretty slow. I'd still be welcome?

    blood, Yes...

    ...by all means your welcome to join and the cool thing about mOOn is there are bailout reroute points all over, so you can skip and jump ahead or just bail if your OK with that!

    We don't drop anyone on our rides, and that is one purpose of this ride is to give noobs and first time visitors a chance to enjoy the trails!

    Great...

    ...I'm very impressed with the way your riding has steeped up, on this past Wednesday night ride you were in the zone smashing and thrashing pedals as if you were being chased by a Mad Hairy Rabbit...

    ...wait, that was "me" behind you... LOL

    Excellent...

    What's the best way to get there if I'm coming South on 81 from Scranton / WB?

    Take exit 164 onto Hwy 29, towards Nanticoke
    Stay on 29 and cross over the river, towards W.Nanticoke
    Stay on 29 as it joins Rt 11 (left turn) - if you find yourself entering Plymouth you went the wrong way,
    At the stop-light just after the bridge and Banko's, turn right onto Hwy 29,
    About 4m later, just after you pass the reservoir (on your right), turn left onto White Oaks
    ( there is a sign for MLP here, on your right, just at the intersection)
    Stay left onto Atherton rd where White Oaks curves to the right, there is a sign for MLP in front of you
    A bit over 1/2 mile later the entrance to MLP will be on your left

    Wink

    Pike's Creek construction is paving Rt 29, but shouldn't be any problems.

    I will add a driving map with directions after lunch today.

    Idea!

    These two maps are after you exit Rt 81

    Map 1 is through Plymouth on Rt 29

    Map 2 is to continuing on Rt 29 to Moon Lake

    The distance is about 6 miles from Banko's even though the sign says 4(God Bless PennDot, must have used a "crow" to measure distance back then... LOL)

    A Landmark to look for as you get close to Moon Lake is Ceasetown(Pike's Creek) reservoir on your right, at that point your only a feet hundred feet from the left turn at the Moon Lake Sign(on your right)onto Moon Lake Drive.
