    The tires on the fat bike may have had some rolling resistance but you hardly touched the brakes on 8 no matter what turn we were in

    The grip was incredible, you can throw all caution to the wind of the front tire going out on you, and roll baby roll!

    I guess you ended up outta juice...
    ...since we didn't see ya, but here's the skinny on the ride for all:

    Lots of riders showed up and the road was full of parked cars all the way to the top of the hill. My group started out to Thorny, Big Blue, 5 Tree, where we had Owen's chain decide to develop 2 ends, so fixed that in about 10 minutes and continued to Moto(up) to Nitemare(up) Big Blue, Nature Center, Twister, Buddy's, Watkins, Skinnys, Edge, T-Rex1, 8, Ledgeview, SR2, Mo-Zee, Peek-A-Boo and done .

    Lottsa rid'in and ripp'in around, we were the last to get back to the cars after 9PM

    batteries were blue when I needed to leave the house and that wouldn't have made and after 9 finish for sure. I didn't expect to get out of the office before 8 yesterday so I stopped charging the batteries when I had to leave the house and go into the office. I usually work from home on Wed's... I don't see me getting out of the office before 8 tonight and that will not change this time. Putting my laptop back together... Gotta earn...

    Friday: First time riding at Moon Lake. Didn't get there till late, and with no lights only had about an hour and a half. Very impressed. Didn't have a map, so just road around till I saw a trail. (screamer?) I'll be back for sure, Best part is it's only 15 minutes from home.

    Thanks NEPMTBA.
    I'd like to hook up with you guys for a ride, but 6 is a little early for me. Don't get home from Tobyhanna till 5:30, and still need lights. Maybe some week-end. Thanks to all who maintain these trails.

    Should have been a good ride. I was dressed and the bike has the new pedals and seat on it. Being on-call means that my work day went to 7 tonight. Pedaled at Planet Hollywood with my daughter.

    Good job!

    Great fun ride as 5 of us...
    ...being the tough guys we are...LOL

    On a cold night we were sure to warm up quick with Super Mark and Chriffer, leading we hit Thorny, Big Blue, Nitemare, Burts, 5 Tree, Moto, Nitemare(as you can see lots of climbing happened, not for the faint of legs and lungs) Big Blue, Peek-a-Boo, Mo-Zee, all of Watkins, Skinnys, Edge, Lower T-Rex2 down round to T-Rex2 up...wheew nice and toasty buy now!

    Riding in snow requires more tech skills, but getting used to sliding into and out of turns makes for a super fun time, only hit one good patch of puddle ice on "8" weeeeeeee!

    "8" and with the non bright idea of going "NO LIGHTS" and what a fun time as there was a full moon, no leaf cover on the trees, just enough light snow on the leaf blown trails to make it possible(a really rare thing where all 3 elements have to exist at once)

    Minus the lights made going down the uphill challenge and the other tricky elements on the "8" trail "WILD"

    Then Ledgeview up(stopped to view the Christmas Tree) NW1, NW2, What, finish to one of the best cold weather rides yet, with lots of climbing and milage!

    This was so much fun, and topping it off went home an hit up the toast with home made blackberry jelly and Minestrone soup... Yum! Looking forward to more cold weather riding, best time of the year, no bugs, pollen or sunburn...

    Dozer had more fun than any of us with his entertaining belly in the snow rest breaks where he would lick the snow in front of him. Truly a "green" thinking doggy!

    Ride da mOOn...
    ...who needs lights?

    PS... looking to "Ride da Rocks" this Friday night with MTBs if possible?

    I'm in NY Friday for my Knee evaluation. It's a 1:15 appt so getting back in time for a 6pm ride will most likely not happen.. Maybe Jimmy can host. I'm also on call till Tuesday morning and I've worked from 8am to 11pm everyday this week so far. I'm still working right now. I did take off an hour and a half to work-out with my daughter yesterday and came back and did a bit more work

    What about 01/01/2101 or 02/02/2202 or 03/03/2103 or 04/04/2104 or 05/05/2105 or 06/06/2106...

    Forever is a long time, I'm waiting for a ride on 12/12/121,212 at 12:12:12 PM. I'm planning on coming back as a rock with arms and legs in my next life. I hope they have mountain bikes in 119,200 years or it will be tough to go for the really epic mountain bike ride...

    Until, the next century. For example, 12/12/2112 will also be 12/12/12.

    Be we are due for an 88 year break in x/x/x dates. 01/01/2101 will certainly be a joyous day!

    Best,

    Nice crowd tonight...

    ...split up into two groups, we headed out NW1, NW2, What, NW2, 5858, SR2 Ledgeview, SR2, NFS, Plan B with a split again some hit up TTS, met back up at 8, took 8 down to end, SR2, SR1, Marina(burr cold), Buddys, Twister, Big Blue, Thorny, out.

    It was fun to be out on NFS and see our friend Ken Pavlick's Christmas lights up on the ridge, he has a huge solitary star, impressive looking as you ride NFS. With the cold north wind blowing off Ceasetown there was ice on NFS...weeeeeeeeeee

    Found icy cruncy places, but still thin mud laying in turns!

    12/12/12 complete for the 2000 century...

    Sounds like you guys had fun. I could not stay late so I did a solo ride at 3:15 until dark. In a short amount of time, you could really feel the temperature drop. There were some slick spots but overall pretty good considering we had two days of rain. See you guys on Sat.

    What a great night to be out...

    ...just simply amazing how well the trails dry out at da mOOn. A full day of rain just got soaked up. It was fun to do a way different ride tonight. It would be a super night to camp out. While I was coming back on SR2 I turned out my light and even with the waxing moon I could see perfect.

    I promise to not turn my bike into a "gravity" machine again!...LOL

    Thanks for a great night on the trails...
    See ya next week!

    Good job!

    Ever get on a roll and ya just don't want it to stop?...
    ..today Sunday was just like that at da mOOn for me.

    Rolled out the ol'school, GT I-Drive, 5 inch travel, 26er, full susser, adjusted quickly to having these options. It was going to be a fun ride! Decided to head out on the pave to Buddys. Sun was shining and the light wind was cold, so next up was looking for a climb. Go'in Up looked like the way, snow covered as most trails were. At the top via Ol'Yeller and CG 32 headed over to T-Rex1, then a really fun downhill strole on 8. Coming out at the picnic table, proceeding down SR1 to the lake. All riding before this was pure silence, just crunching snow under the tires!

    The geese changed the silence with their song as I passed, and got to see an old friend with his doggie French Fry along on his tour today. French Fry didn't want to stop and chat with us as I think he had plan of his own.

    Continuing on to go up Dual to Big Blue for a bit of climbing, but not needing to stay warm, as I was cooking by now, it just made for a great
    route. Ended with Thorny BMX then the dirt road to NW2/NW1.

    Really didn't want to leave da mOOn, but had to visit with Moto buddies and their Christmas party/ride later today.

    Hope I can keep this ride going right through New Years.
    Pics? Nope, not today just pure riding!

    Sounds like you had a great ride. I wish it was a little colder so the ground would be frozen. And yeah, I noticed the geese really liked moon lake today.

    Good job!

    Still Roll'in...

    ...today a bit different as I decided to do a personal "Scot" Trials type of ride, meaning no stopping, and no dabbing! Entertaining one's self sometimes means looking at stuff in a very different way. Thinking about it will only get ya in trouble though. Had to remind myself a few times to stop looking and just ride it...LOL!

    Trail conditions were all snow covered trails and some spots sufferenig from ice where wind was blowing acrosss the snow! X-ray vision was needed as I didn't use the studded tires. Nice to have the trails all to myself, only a few tracks on certain trails. Peacful, quiet and just the crunching of snow interupted the calm, until the geese tuned up, and the black crow that followed me in a few places wishing me Merry Christamas with his cackling.

    Da ride, started off on NW1, past the park office, down the pave, Peek-A-Boo, Mo-Zee expecting to get my dabs in early, but got through it all clean. The big uphill slippy, and steep, success! T-Rex2 was the next choice for me. Got one dab in the lower section, and well deserved, a hidden slippy root said "not here" to my tire. OK, one in the book. Out to the field and back up to CG32, Edge, Skinnys, didn't dab anymore, but I was only along for the ride at a few points as it was icy and tricky...LOL Watkins, SR1, up through the picnic area all the way up to Thorny BMX back out to the pave and NW2/NW1.

    Riding a mt bike in the snow really maintains and helps with tech skills. Lots of slipping and correcting. Ending up with no stops and only one dab made for a great day.

    A few hours at da mOOn was a great warm up for the Moto Trials ride at Joey's later on this fantastic Christmas Day! What a better way to end Christmas, friends, Moto riding, a big fire and BBQ after a bit of slippy side hill tormenting hosted by Joey and family. I will remember it for quite a while!

    To my fishing friends... fellas the report is "ice has formed" across from the overflow. Looks as if the north wind continues, ice will cover in a day or two. I'm ready for the party!

    FISH ON!
    Rode da mOOn

    I highly doubt anyone would come out to ride mt bikes at 6PM during the snow storm anyway, as the weather forecast calls for bad road conditions later on Wednesday 12/26/12

    Good job!

    In an effort to send the year out in style...

    ...cr500, Rhines, bilbo, beardman, and myself hit the trails for one last time in 2012. All ready snow covered the ride started with a jaunt on NW1, Ledgeview, 8, T-Rex1, T-Rex2, and it started to snow just like the blizzard they predicted.

    Looking to be the foolish types we are Screamer would be our next choice, Yee Haa downhilling on the newly added snowcovered path. Needless to say we all got down in one piece, and slid through the Squeezer...

    ...but to Fat Dogs disliking as we dusted him. Barking and yelping as if we were going to leave him for the coyotes! Coyotes would run from him! Sux to have such short front legs when running full speed downhill!...LOL. He needs 9 or 10 speed components!

    Farm Road was next followed by Mo-Zee to Dual(a pretty much featureless trail)that Rhines and I promote as "GREAT" trail... LOL At least we like it. Up to da Nature Center and onto Big Blue, now with dropping tempetures lots of unfriendly ice appeared. Thorny BMX and out.

    Wind just a howling snow blinding drifts "WOW" almost sounds like a blizzard. The ride ended with us dusting off our cars and Fat Dog getting a bit of brushing off too!

    Driving home Rhines got to see my corrective maneuvers in the middle of the road as the Factory Ford Focus just would not hook and turn! Damn disc brakes needs V-brakes like my bikes. No prob take the next exit 180 out and try from a different angle!

    Lessons learned? NOPE, Just Ride...
    ...last of da mOOn 2012 completed, Snow kidding!

    That was my first official snow ride and I had a blast! Didn't even hear a sound in the woods....the infamous calm before the storm. Thanks everyone for a good year at the Moon!
