    Weather providing*, I'll be at the Carverton Rd entrance for the Tuesday ride, 6pm.

    We won't be doing ALL our rides at Slocum, so we're going to 'cycle' around to different venues in The Valley, for variety and to allow connection with people who can't make rides in one end or the other.

    For Tuesday the 28th the ride will be at Moosic Mtn, targeting 6pm as normal.

    *weather info: If it rains w/in 12 hours prior to the ride, the ride is OFF. I know that PA in general is more tolerant of rain than many areas, some trails in particular, however calling a group ride centers responsibility for the group activity. People are welcome to ride on their own, but the group ride will be "off" in these conditions. Heck, when I lived in TX it took *days* for a trail system to recover from significant rain, so take what we've got and enjoy. :^)

    Keep the rubber side down!

    reminder:

    Tues 4/28 ride at Moosic Mtn, Eales Preserve, 6pm.

    From Wilkes-Barre take I-81 to Rt 6/Carbondale,
    Take exit 1 off Rt 6, turn left (uphill!) onto Marshwood Rd towards Mt. Cobb, and drive about 2.5 miles to the entrance/parking area.
    FYI: Mashwood dumps you onto Rt 247 just a bit downhill from the entrance.

    It can also be accessed off Rt 6 exit 3, Rt 247

    For those who may want it, Google Map Link.

    Ride intent is to be "small loop" - heading out across Conglomerate (playing around on the rocky wackiness of that trail however the group wants to), and then uphill via. Possible extra offshoot riding on View as the group wants.

    I ride out there a bit last Friday (not just the above) and there's still a fair amount of sitting and running water on so some trail areas, so I'm trying to not damage those.

    Keep the rubber side down!

    Nice ride with excellent company - Jack and Suzanne - at MMC, totally awesome sunset, and the new "After 5" trail is a real piece of work.

    Thanks for the company, kids!

    Two questions:

    Tried putting caverton road in my phone and gps won't pick it up. Picks up GPS for Frances slocum. Will that put me close enough to caverton to find it?

    Is there a bike shop nearby to pick up a tube first?

    Official Slocum entrance is in other side of park, off Mt Olivet rd, so probably not best.

    To get to trailhead, turn right off 309 onto Carverton in Trucksville as you would be coming up from Kingston - Subway, Pizza Perfect, et al at that stoplight. Straight thru next stoplight, and about 3/4 mile in the trailhead will be on your left.

    Sickler's shop is closest, in the shopping center next to 309 where rt 11 crosses under in Kingston. I think there is a Gertrude Hawk chocolate store, subway, and Chinese restaurant in the front. Sickler's in just around the left side.

    Tuesday June 16th ride will be at Slocum, 6pm as usually - weather providing.

    Again, any rain after Noon on Tuesday and no ride - things are kind-of damp up there right now as it is. :^(

    I'll post update here no later than 4pm Tuesday.

    addendum: I'm "calling it" now - no official ride. Things were saturated up there this morning when I got up, and there's been rain through over he morning.

    So, *next* week, weather permitting, we'll enjoy Slocum.

    The 6-23-15 organized Anthracite Mountain Pedalers Weekly Tuesday Evening ride will be postponed till next Tuesday.

    Due to me being ill. BUT the multi use tails are open for your riding pleasure. If they are muddy please and try and tread lightly and not leave a trace.

    My apologies
