    Update: It looks like we have a lot of interest in the Epic ride so we have added additional trail guides. We also have quite a lot of good swag for everyone, plus food, and some great raffle prizes.

    Good job! Should be a lot of fun

    The roadies had a great turnout last weekend even in crappy weather for the benefit ride from the Velodrome, so here's hoping all the fat tire riders come out in droves for this good cause. Hopefully some good weather and for sure some good rides and good freinds.

    Thanks Lee!

    That's great, thanks for the support! My wife, Liz Reap, is the main organizer so you should just see her when you get there. We have gotten a ton of awesome support for the raffle, from Bicycling, Dirt Rag, Herseys, Blue Mountain Sports, Mary's Guest House, Rodale, South Mountain Cycles, and now Lee, just to name a few. Between the riding, prizes and food you are going to go away happy!

    Sweet. I was just logging on to mtbr to get some advice on what trails to ride as I'm heading down from Boston to a wedding right nearby this weekend. Guess my questions are answered.

    Lee,
    As a Macungie/Emmaus/ overall Lehigh Valley mountain biker, thanks for the support and thanks to all the sponsors and organizers. This should be a hoot! And it's a good cause..as I like to put it, a Karma downpayment!

    Anyone want to start a ride a little earlier, say 9am? Need to be at a wedding at 1:30. Looking to do @20 miles of technical xc at a good clip.

    Pics from Jim Thorpe Fallen Rider Ride Adventure Weekend

    To All:

    What a great time!

    Lath and Liz and all the others who hosted this ride my hats off to you!

    Fantastic day!

    Thanks to all the trail guides who made it fun! You guys ROCK!

    I made many new friends as well as saw some old ones! We have to do this again there was such a great atmosphere at the park! I hope "WE" from "ALL" areas can have more rides in other areas. Anyone interested in riding where I live here in the Northeast can call or email me. I will be working on a weekend ride series. Keep ya posted! We still do Tuesday Night rides from the shop (Proformance Cycle Wyoming Pa) to the local areas.

    All are welcome!

    Thanks again for the great time

    I posted the pics

    Pete:

    Glad I got a pic of ya! That ride was amazing! Way faster than I am used to riding. I like Trail riding and find trials sections to ride. But it was great. I think we had some of the best Mt Bikers in PA. I came home I downed 17 pizzas and fell a sleep! What a day! when di we do it again!

    Thanks again to all who made it happen!
