    This is what I do during the winter (ride photos)

    These are some pics I’ve taken over the past few weekend rides. It’s been incredible the past 2 weeks, since the V-day snow and ice storm, being able to ride atop the crusted white surface. It brings a whole new level of fun to the normal old spots and trails. The riding I’ve done had been well worth the backbreaking shoveling and other nuisances the storm left behind. Hope you all got out and had some fun too!


    That’s me on the 29er SS Mary

    They were all from around the Cornwall area which is Lancaster/Lebanon county line area of little mountains. The horseshoe trail runs thru here and connects some nice spots from Mt. Gretna to pumping station/ Camp Mack, to Middle Creek wildlife area.

    The crusty snow here in Bloomsburg has gotten just weak enough that tire treads dig in and grip like crazy, even in places where it is so slippery that I can barely walk (and my dog for that matter). I was blasting around my yard for over an hour yesterday because I just couldn't believe the feel-it was surreal! I have been needing a ride real bad, so I was glad I gave it a try! The only problem was riding through footprints-they were bumpy-everything else was smooth.

    Just one more bit of proof that a MTB can (and should) end up taking me to all kinds of crazy places!

    We have been riding more behind Geisinger, there are lots of great trails there. Behind Bloomsburg Hospital there is a nice little spot, but I mean little. I have hear that the Mainville State Game Lands is a good place, but I went there once and it was all VERY rocky-a little much for the hardtail. If anyone knows any nicer trails out that way, I'd be interested... I've also heard that Roaring Creek is good-I think it is PPL land that has been opened for recreational use. Sometimes we just tool around town/campus. There's this one other place we ride, but it is private property, so I'm not comfortable with giving out any details over the forum.

    I think I'll be riding (or trying to ride) at Geisinger tomorrow (sunday) afternoon, depending on how much snow is still lingering. Burgundy 4Runner, silver/black hardrock, white skatepark helmet, and probably my german shepherd.
