    Urban Pedal Warfare

    Today, I decided to do a nice town ride!!! So me and the Mono hit the rail bed in Swoyersville and headed off towards Exeter and West Pittston. It was a great ride until I got to Exeter and heard the dreaded woosh of air from my back tire. Then reality slapped me when I realized I left my tools and spare tube in my car!!! Walked about three blocks to Sickler's for a new tube. The guy was really great!!! I was about 30 cents short, but he hooked me up. Then let me borrow a pedal wrench and their shop pump!!! Got going again and turned my trusty steed towards home and off I went!!! All in all, it was a great ride...just over 8 1/2 miles and an hour and 8 minutes riding time!!!

    Roadpirate's Welcome Back/Happy Birthday Ride

    What a great time at da Moon yesterday!!! We were celebrating Roadpirate's birthday and return to da Moon after getting his unfortunate skateboarding accident!!! It was Roadpirate, Dirtrider6, Buddy123 with Buddy and Barney, tuffgrl, and mini. We were joined by NEPMTBA, Justingkoolaid, and RRHines for an amazing ride!!! We started off from the big pavilion down by the lake up past the maintenance buildings to Deacon. We all started up the service road, but I ended up riding that hill three times because Barney decided he wan't ready to join the ride yet...LOL!!! We then hit Ledgeview, 8, Edge, T-Rex 2. Roadpirate and I opted out of doing Screamer. Off to the pavilion for some great company and some good eats!!! Just wanted to thank everyone for helping make Brandon's return such a special one. Thank you!!!

    New Toy!!!

    Lisa and I got new phones the other day!!! We had Straight Talk phones and they worked great, but I lost coverage from outside of Luzerne all the way up to da Moon!!! Went to Verizon and got Samsung Galaxy Stellars. Download an app called Move! Bike Computer...Love It!!! You can map your ride and download it to Google earth!!!

    Beautiful day for a Moon landing!!!

    Today Lisa, Brandon, and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather at da Moon!!! Lisa and Brandon decided to head out on Nature's Way1 while I was getting ready for the ride!!! Good thing I hung behind because another rider needed my assistance in the form of borrowing my cell phone because he locked his keys in his car. Once everything was squared away, I set out on my journey to join Brandon at the lake. I rode down the paved road and ducked in on Peek-a-Boo and down to the lake. I decided to introduce Brandon to Skinny's, from there we ducked onto 8 rode that down the cut-out on the first section. We ended our ride by enjoying Ledgeview and the service road down by Maintenance and out the road!!! It was a great ride with no injuries other than being sore when we got home!!!

    Beautiful day at da Moon!!!

    Yesterday was far too beautiful of a day to not be at da Moon!!! Since I had not really been doing any serious riding for a few weeks, I decided to take an easier route!!! I started out on Nature's Way1 to What. From the end of what I jumped out on the service road and up towards Nature's Way1. I then jumped on the paved road and headed up past the tennis courts to Big Blue!!! As I approached the Nature Center I felt an odd sensation on the trail...rear tire was losing air!!! Not a problem....I had my tire tools, a tube, and a pump with me! Now for the problem...I forget my wrench for the rear axle bolts back in the car...well, I guess it was a nice day for a walk, too...LOL!!!

    Damn!!!

    Brandon and I were out tooling around town on our bikes yesterday when I ran over a big rock under the leaves...the impact caused such pain in my right foot I had no choice but to see the doctor today. He said I have plantar fascitis! I am on some powerful anti-inflammatories and I am supposed to stay off my feet as much as possible! I hope this gets better soon!

    It's That Time!!!

    I got out for a shakedown ride on my new Giant Talon yesterday...thanks to Dave at Valley Cycles for such a great deal!!! I felt like I was flying, well, at least while I was able to breathe decently...I have not been riding and exercising like I should be!!!

    Guess what time it is!!! If you guessed sweatpants, duct tape, and hiking boots time...you are absolutely CORRECT!!! Enjoy the ensuing pictures of the madness about to ensue!!!
