    Don't know if you have a specific timeframe in mind, but I'll be heading down that way for a solid half-day of riding at least once between now and Labor Day.

    Labor Day weekedn?

    I'd be interested in a road trip to DE for a group ride on Labor Day weekend. If anyone else is in (and it seems like there are a few) let's coordinate which day works best.

    It's a great place to ride. Not much in the technical department. Not too steep. Mostly singletrack. I would estimate there are at least 15 miles of trails. Middle Run is right next to White Clay Creek State Park that has another 13 miles or so of very singlespeed friendly singletrack. The Judge Morris Estate across the road from one corner of Middle Run. Judge Morris has 4 miles of singletrack. Some people park at Middle Run, ride over to White Clay and ride all the trails there. Cross the road back to Middle Run and ride the trails to cross another road and ride the Judge Morris loop. Then cross the road back to Middle Run and ride the trails on the back side of Middle Run and back to where they parked the car. If you need any info, just ask. -Bob

    i'm game

    You know I may have ridden White Clay and just didnt notice. i ride Middlerun about 3 or 4 times a yeah and I always cross a street and do a really cool loop.

    Middlerun is a flowy fast single track playground, it always a good break away from the wiss. and belmont ( wich can make you want to quit)
    if some one sets a date besides a sunday i'm game.

    do u still have to pay to get into White Clay or does evryone just park at Middlerun?

    Then perhaps a caravan might be a better idea. If that's not feasible, I'll get directions and fly solo.

    Yes

    Yes, the parking lot at the end of the long gravel driveway off of Possum Hollow Road. I could plan out a 20 mile ride with several bail-out points along the way. - Bob

    Just got word of a commitment with the kids tomorrow afternoon. I swear I'm snakebitten, Keith. Someone out there doesn't want us riding together.

    Have fun tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear that Bob(Call_Me_Clyde) won't be able to make it. I'll be there at 1:00pm(traffic willing). I hope a few people will make it for the ride. I'll be riding a black/blue Trek Fuel. I drive an older gold Ford Explorer. Hope to see you there. -Bob
