Bear: that makes sense. With tubes I was running 27-28 in the front and 29-30 in the rear. That was probably a little high for my 29er. I found myself bouncing off rocks. ( I'm only 160 lbs)
...just enough air to stop them from rolling off the rims, tubes, no tubes, don't care what color the tires are either! They hold air and roll my a88 over stuff!
It's dirt and rocks. "UN-WEIGHT" over the bad stuff!
Every time I see a Duck I think "Quack"
Sunny spots, yes...
...shady spots, no
Spring has sprung! Another great day to ride, trails are in pretty good shape, I hit a few on Sunday with a walk through to flick and pick sticks. I will be on some of my favorite trails tonight...
...but then again they are "all" my favs, Hum? Now that would a "Super Ride"
Ride da mOOn
It certainly was a great day to be riding da Moon!!! Didn't get as much riding in as I wanted to, but I am just happy that I was up there and riding!!!

Reason: Forgot to add pics
Waging war on my pedals every chance I get!!!
It's a super good feeling tooling around the trails...
...sun was shining, trails are in great shape. Peaceful with only the sound of the geese. I made my way on my favs. Started out with Rock-It, why not I like the toughest first then everything else is easy...LOL
Up to Buddy's, Twister, Slide, Mo-Zee, Watkins, Skinnys, Trials Area for a bit of hopping around, Edge, the old log road, Marina, NW1 and out. Once again there is so much fun stuff to play on it just amazes me. I keep finding new stuff even after 7 years of Ride da mOOn, and only one other rider in the park tonight! It's been a super winter riding season. I really don't want to see it end.
Rode da mOOn...
...might have to do it again tomorrow!

Looks like another great day to...
...Ride da mOOn
The secret attachment is invalid right now, but after the ride it will divulge it's true nature you'll just have to ride and check later.

Down this way we get that early season for trout. Been doing that for a few years now, but the problem with that is every body from near and far shows up and destroys the area for those two weeks.
I also seen they had multi year licenses now. Have not gotten my license in probably about two or three years.
Anyways, pictures look good.
I agree, I really hate to get to a great stream only to see a bunch of litter from the last guy no matter where he was from. I always pick it up and my local bait shop guys take used line and recycle it.
The early trout season is cool I get to ride the Tamaqua area and fish, it makes a complete day.
Time to Ride da mOOn again!
Peek-A-Boo, Mo-Zee, Watkins, Slide, Edge, Buddys T-Rex 1/2/4, Twister... here I come!
Trails are great...
...lots of fun ahead
What a great ride!
Waited out the storm and hit the trails. A little trail work in the beginning of the ride, Big D and KuhlKat joined me for one hell of a time. Good conversation during the ride kept the ride flowing on a non stop mega blast.
Good to see friends from Long Island NY who ventured out in the storm, hope you guys can make it back again!

Great ride. Thunder and lightning always make it interesting. Always an adventure when the Big D is involved.
Roda da mOOn...
...today a longer, tougher ride. Thorny, Big Blue, 5 Tree, Moto, Berts, Grass Trails, Slide, Watkins, Skinnys, Egde, T-Rex1, T-Rex2, Screamer, Mo-Zee, Peek-A-Boo, Big Blue, Thorny for a total of 9 miles!
That loop is one of my favs, getting to ride 5 tree, and Moto as well as Berts just makes my day!
Trails are in great shape a few blow downs here or there will be cleaned up soon as spring progresses.
As always great conversation and a bit of Johnny Cash made it super.
Thanks KuhlKat and Swabby
Hey, Big D ya missed a good one!
Check it out now...

Almost the end of April it's been a great one even if winter was an uninvited guest for too long, but the trails are fine and the rides have been great.
Different loop again this week

5/1/13 Nice warm night...
...rode very different way, linking trails that normally don't go together. It was like being at a new place, even after 7 years of Ride da mOOn I found myself looking around, and seeing cool sights.
