    sharp pain in bicep and cant lift arm? totally had that happen after a st. patty's day bar brawl once for a month or so... it comes back every now and then if i twist a certain way, usually after sitting around not doing anything for a bit thou, like at work..... rotator cuff is suspect as well

    At least he didn't get a heli ride to Morristown.

    Thanks for taking care of my stuff, I'll give Mini a call in a bit here.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    Mini hope you feel better, pulling a muscle sucks, I should know.
    Stretching really helps a lot, put ice on it, 10-15 minutes every hour for the first couple days, then alternate between ice and a moist heating pad, lots and lots of stretching.

    Good job!

    Everyone knows what fun it is to ride...
    ...but riding with lots of friends makes it super.

    Justin hosted this ride and it came together with flying colors. We traveled in a caravan of cars south on Rt81 to the Pine Grove exit where we arrived at the Swatara trailhead, if you haven't visited this area, I suggest you do, as right off the interstate it transforms into old country roads and small towns very quickly with lots of history.

    As we arrived from the north, riders from nearby and as far as Allentown and Lancaster areas traveled to meet us for the ride. Making for a great mix of friends from all of eastern Pennsylvania.

    The trailhead had 2 options you can ride the singletrack trails or hit the rail trail for a leasuriely spin. This is a very popular place lots of cars and eager riders. One local rider at the trail head was quite impressed with our number of riders, commented on "how great it was a group like ourselves got together to do this ride"

    We geared up and hit the singletrack trails, lots of flowy rights and lefts with little rises that require the rider to keep pace rewarding you with swoopy fun and the ocational logover throw in to keep you honest.

    Riding roughly the 9 miles of interconnecting loops. Everyone got to pick and choose their own pace and speed as there was always a waiting place at the many intersections. One section DR6 and myself hooked up for a Moto style rip on the dirt, after a brief rest we looked at each other and said the same thing "That was Fun" Spending time here was very easy due to the beautiful weather, and friendly nature of the trails.

    Justin provided a big cooler full of all kinds of beverages after the ride making for a nice cool down BSing, bike swapping, demo session that ended our day at Swatara.

    Anoither day in the woods riding a different place with lots of friends...
    ...just perfect. Thanks to all...
