    Yup I remember and that is part of the reason why I asked. I tweaked my ankle and arm last night riding so I wont make it this week. I have been trying to get there since we met but really have conflicting schedules. So hopefully next wednesday Ill be able to show up.

    Rode da Moon tonight for the first time. Da Moon put me down for a standing eight count in the first round but I finished the round and I'll be back for round two in a couple of weeks. I can indeed attest that no rider is left behind, lol. My ribs took a beating. I spared ya those photos.

    Found a pair of full fingered gloves at Moon Lake today. If you are missing them they are under the big log near the first picnic table at the entrance to NW.

    Found these old pics from when we first went up Moon Lake back in 2012. The guy on the yellow Specialized was the one that organized the Trials event for RTCC

    It seems like moon lake is really well liked, I mainly ride the Lackawanna state park, but am looking hit up moon in the upcoming days. Any preference on where to start and ride to for a good hour and a half to two hours? What are everyone's favorite trails?

    Thanks guys

    Most of us park outside the main entrance. There is a big rock and the trail starts alongside it. If you haven't got a map, do a search here and print one out. The trails go completely around the whole lake. All vary in style, but just about everyone has rocks and roots. Totally rideable. Depending on your speed you could easily get at least a 1.5 - 2 hour ride in. I ride all of the trails there. Don't really have a favorite. One ride I dowould be Natures way, down access road to Deacon, follow onto Ledgeview, cross access road to 8. Ride 8 to Trex2. Skip lower section of Trex2 and head out to campground and head down ET. Then onto Watkins. Follow road to Twister and Buddys. Go thru woods to 5 Tree and onto Burts and Moto. Out to Big Blue and end with Thorny, and ride thru the field to the car. If you are in the area Saturday there is usually a group that heads out around 10am. I'll be there a bit later. New riders are always welcome.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    There's a fallen tree down on 8. It straddles the trail at about neck level. Damn near took my head off. Cracked my helmet in two. Just hard to see. If there aren't already plans, I'd like permission to cut it down. If not, I'd suggest rerouting that part of the trail.

    If u got a means of cutting it out safely it would save someone else from having to do it. Da moon always welcomes volunteer trail maintenance. Thanks in advance.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    What a nite for a ride. Might not have been a good idea to ride da moon after all the rain we got but myself and bikergirl weren't alone. Dave, amy, murphy, chris s, wayne, and a few others had the same idea. Traction was minimal. But what a night for a ride.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Yes,

    the big, dangerous to cut out, above head level tree has been removed by 2 beavers...
    ...hence the trail is open at the cost of a now, not brand new, anymore, chain!

    Ouch... 45 bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Where do I send the bill?...LOL

    I know there is this big debate about if it is better to clear leaves from the trail or let them alone. In the past, we have cleared them. It sure made it easier to follow the trails (especially for those not as familiar with the trails). It also made it a little safer through the rocky, technical sections. I am going to head out there Sunday morning, Nov. 2 to get a start on it. If anyone else is interested, let me know. As in the past, the more people we get, the quicker the job gets done
