    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
