    ... and if we just ... 2012 Tuesday evening riding at Frances Slocum

    Tuesday evening riding at Frances Slocum State Park will resume on April 3, 2012 at 6:00PM.

    We will be meeting at the Carverton Rd. parking area next to the fenced in pumping station.

    For the first three Tuesday evening rides bring a light just in case we need them on the way out of the ride.

    We had 11 riders on the ride. Great weather, dry trails and tons of fun.

    We had two groups go out tonight, the insane "Lets hammer till we drop" ride and "lets get out there and have fun ride"

    Here are the two pictures i shot. Larry I think shot some also.

    Check on Wyoming Valley Mountain Bike Association - Powered by vBulletin for more images and up and comming rides.

    I'll post-up from my place whether it's raining or not, about 4:30 (should be home by then) - unless Crash does as he's a bit closer.

    Note that "raining" means "raining enough to care about, or thunder/lightning in the area".

    Should be fine, didn't rain that much (I live a few miles away).

    That said, I'm probably not making it this week. Supah-long day yesterday ... and I'm such a geezer!

    Well four of us braved the bad weather todays ride.

    Joe, Chris, Gus and I rode Slocum to Larrys and back to Slocum. As soon as we left Larry's to head back, the rain let loose. Fun and slippery ride.

    Joe was really pumped up with the rain.

    Joe is psycho.

    Good for y'all though, glad you got the ride in.

    I was with you in spirit, but my physical reality was doing Other Things That Needed To Be Done.

    We had a dry ride this week. Rode Slocum and over Friedman's and back. Gus and I got stung by bees at Friedman's. I got one in the leg and Gus got about 4 to five stings.

    A friend and I rode up to Frances Slocum from Luzurne and rode some of the trails. The trails were fun and in great shape. Rode out in the dark. What a challange to stay focused, but so much fun. I will definately be back again soon!!

    Thank you! I glad you enjoyed the trails. As you probally noticed any trail with a red blaze are multiuse which we could ride but if its yellow blaze its for hiking only. We have a facebook page if you would like to join it for WVMTBA news and we are working on updating the web side in the next few months.

    Thanks again,

    10-9-12 ride

    Panning to hold off the ride for about two weeks. Archery season is in full swing right now. So I think by two weeks it will be dark when the ride starts so the hunters will be out of the woods.

    Hi guys i went for a ride last sunday morning (oct 7) and forgot my bike wheel in the parking lot off of green road at Francis slocum park. I guess after disassembling my bike to put it back in my car after my ride i was in a hurry to go somewhere and drove away with the wheel in the parking lot. I came back a little bit later and it was gone. Anybody know who i could contact or get in touch with that might know? Its a 26" wheel, disc breaks, etc...
    Thanks.

    You may want to contact the Francis Slocum park headquarters, it's not impossible that someone would have turned it in there, but I honestly wouldn't get my hopes up too much.

    That's a real bummer though.

    You should send WVMTBA a PM - he has a bunch of used parts he may have a front wheel for sale cheap if you need it (or not, I don't really know what's in his basement, but it never hurts to ask).

    I'll also put the word out with those I know that frequent the area, but as we didn't group-ride there Tuesday I've no clue how many have hit the trail this week what with bow-hunting season on and all.

    10-23-12 Ride

    Well Mother Nature is not cooperating with us, since this is the last Tuesday evening mtn ride at Slocum for 2012. The ride is canceled. But the ride will start back up in April 2013. Keep checking on Facebook, MTBR.com and wvmtba.com (The WV site is temporally down, but will be back up and going soon.) on up and coming rides and events.
