    Prompton Sunday

    Planning on hitting Prompton Sunday. Probably late morning. Beav700 got a new fork and I'm reverting to fat tires....it will be a good day.

    Last weekend the trails were great. Yeah leaves were down, but there has been enough traffic to keep the trails somewhat clear or at least packed down. I don't mind 'em. Hopefully it's not soaked, but Prompton is fun and challenging when it's a little wet.

    Ok, so 11am at the end of the paved trail on the Beech Grover Rd.

    Remember about time change. 11am new time.

    The problem is Prompton doesn't get enough traffic, I never see anyone in there, and it's aways wet after all the rain we had. stay up high it's less muddy up there and enjoy your ride,wish I was there.

    Had great time. Rode just over three hours. Ran into Ron at the parking lot, all muddy and wet. Later ran into a couple for NJ. They were walking as one of their bikes had broken chain. We had it fixed in no time and kept on going. Little wet, but overall beautiful day. Did some minor maintenance. Trails are in great shape. Some pixs and video below.

    That surprises me, Prompton is one of the best trail systems in NEPA, unfortunately where I live now it's almost a 2 hour drive, but I still managed to ride it 3 times this season.
    The ongoing construction there probably keeps some people away.

    Why post my failures? Some day I'll make this. Funny how simple it looks on video, but at least I didn't roll down it backwards this time.

    Yeah, that damn construction is probably keeping a few people away. I know I rolled up there once and saw it and turned around until I found out you can still get to the trails.
