    ... and if we just ... Friday Night Happy Hour is back

    no we're not drinking......we're riding of course. Night riding is killer this time of year. The skies are clear the trees are a bloomin' and the wind dies down and the lights are charged and ready to go. It's truly great to get the weekend started with a ride. The pace is fun and kicks up when the boogie man is behind you. We're infamous for brining two mtn bikers together on this ride and now are getting married in september!!!!!



    this friday: Jacobsburg State Park
    http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/statepar...acobsburg.aspx
    time: 8;30
    Where: stone parking lot down from main parking lot

    All my night rides are proudly brought to you by Lupine Lights!!!!

    How many people do you typically get for these night rides? I don't have lights currently, but I was considering getting some...assuming I'll use 'em.

    would be more if i could get there. no luck getting the lights out regularly here. keep the rides going, night riding is a blast, and sorely underappreciated.

    Charge those batteries because this Friday, June 2nd, VMB (The Valley Mountain Bikers) will be doing a Happy Hour Ride at Jacobsburg State Park. We'll be meeting at the stone lot just past the main parking lot at 8:30 PM. Pace will be fun/medium and we'll keep riding until everyone has had enough. Please check back on Friday around 6:00 to see if we will canel due to bad weather. (I saw today that mother nature may not cooperate with us.) Post ride BYOB. If you need to mooch I'm sure there will be enough to go around.

    This will be a regular ride throughout the summer so if you miss this week catch us some other time.

    Weather looks a little messy for tonight's ride. Check back this evening around 5 or 6 to see how things are and whether the ride is still on or not. If its a downpour we'll have to wait until next Fri. If its a washout we could do beverages and bike porn at someone's house???

    The skys over the greater Lehigh Valley decided to open up in just the past 20 minutes...we'll have to try it again next week. Tentatively we'll do next Friday night at Jacobsburg State Park for the Friday night Happy Hour Ride. I'll post a time and date later this week. If anyone needs info just shout out and we'll let you know the detials.
    Thanks!

    Yes, we're going to give it another go. This Friday June 9th we will be meeting at Jocobsburg State Park for a Happy Hour Ride. Meet at the stone lot approx one quarter mile past the main lot at 8:00. If you are planning on going on this ride please respond so we can get a general idea of how many will be there. Nice pace, not too fast and not too slow. Plenty of fun to be had by all. Come out and find out what its all about. Who knows, you might even meet the one you'll marry!

    Ok here's the plan. Since it rains everytime the Friday Happy Hour ride is posted or discussed, I'll say now that we won't be doing this ride next Friday. (little reverse psych.) It is ofically cancelled until further notice. Enough said.

    Just incase you don't know, its been raining all week long and was gorgeous all day until about 5:00...then the skies opened up. So that means that tonight's ride will be cancelled as will all other Friday Happy Hour rides.

    Weather looks good this week so we'll do the Friday Happy Hour ride tomorrow night at Jacobsburg. Meet at the stone lot just past the main parking lot at 8:30 PM. This is definitely not a serious ride...a lot of jabbering and chop bustin. BYOB or mooch off of somone if its not payday this Friday...plenty to go around.
