    I haven't been on the trails in probably 3 weeks and I can feel the fat piling on. I might be able to join you Wednesday or Thursday, but hopefully you guys are talking about 12-15 miles of riding and not an average speed of 12-15mph!

    I guess you can only advertise your bike for sale on the classifieds, I noticed the thread I posted is now gone...darn, was starting to get response...oh well do a classified with the other 1,000's of bikes...but in the meantime pass it on everyone I'm selling my 2007 Cannondale Carbon Rush 2 for $1800 OBO all stock except have different tires on it (Ignitors on rear, and Conti Explorers on Front)...thanks for your help everyone.

    nah - i'm talking about total distance - i like to ride for fun, not in a hurry. this wont be race training that's for sure. just post a date and time and we can meet up at the parking lot off possum hollow rd. as i said before either day works and the weather should be the same both days.

    So you knowingly posted on another forum, had it taken down, and do the same thing over here..... Take it elsewhere jerky.

    Don't forget it's shotgun season. The Bryant Field Trail is closed for sure (saw it) and I suspect the David English Trail, Cart Trail, and Boundary Line Trail are also closed.

    Whitely Farms, Judge Morris, and everything in Middle Run is open.

    Vyper, those videos were taken and posted by ExigeS. I have downloaded a copy from youtube and converted to .avi format. If you like, I can e-mail to you. Just shoot me a PM/e-mail.

    Yeah, it was a tad bit 'snotty' in spots, wasn't it? Actually, I thought most areas were in pretty good shape. The worst was the low lying portions of the Lenape Trail approaching Fox Den Rd.

    Me & some friends went riding yesterday (Thanksgiving) at Middle Run...Conditions for the most part were great...just a little bit of mud in some areas...

    I've been wearing SixSixOne shin pads ever since I wrecked pretty hard at Judge Morris about 3 months ago...Anyway they saved me from getting another huge gash on the very same spot...

    There is a short log (about 10-12ft long about 2ft high) at the fiberglass bridge where the approach is just a few small logs put together and the other end is just a straight drop off about 2ft...I never tried it on my hardtail cause if you dont pull up the front wheel just right you will probably end up going over the handlebars...When we got there yesterday we saw that somebody had put a log on the end where it used to drop off to form a nice kinda steep down ramp...I said to myself," This is gonna be a piece of cake,any baby could do it "

    There are 2 very small stumps on the ground before the approach which you have to go between..no problem....there are the semi loose baby logs leading onto the main log....no problem....there is a small hump on the main log that you have to watch out for...no problem..you have to keep you front wheel in the middle of the down ramp...problem...My front wheel was off to the left and it kinda missed the ramp...guess what ?? Over the handlebars I went..My shin hit the same spot as the JM crash but it didnt hurt at all...no marks no nothing...Nice

    Moral of the story...Its much safer just to stay at home...eat turkey and watch football

    Oh yeah...You can never have enough protection

    Trail condition update?

    I'm looking to head down from PA tomorrow. Think it'll stay frozen? Dried out by now?
    Just don't want to make the drive for wet/muddy/don't want to do any trail damage.

    Not expected to be cold enough to freeze 2 nite,. I have not had a chance to get over to Middle Run in a couple of days, but Fair Hill was fine yesterday so I think White Clay will be fine also, assuming nothing major happens 2 nite.

    Did the skills trail today then from there went over to middle run...Conditions were alot better than Thurs but still muddy in certain areas...We were leaving just as it started to flurry...I would definitely forget about Sunday...It'll be pretty bad...

    Note>>Someone, maybe the trailspinners, put some new logs in the ground at the very end of the skills trail along the last straightaway...pretty cool...
