    The land is not open to the public, however, we have invite rides all the time. If it is a posted ride the invite is open to all that show up to ride. If the rides begin to attract too many riders we may have to put a limit on the number of riders someday but that is not likely with the number of people we have had coming on the invite days.

    I'm old, fat and hairy and I have yet to not invite myself to ride so I'm pretty sure that all abilities are welcome. We do require a signed release that we keep on-file. Helmets are required.

    We are not really all that formal or organized so a group of hammer riders can separate and pedal till they pop an artery. There are plenty of places for trials or tech riders to just play on rocks and jack around and there will usually be a group that make-up a "No man/woman/child left behind" group. Dogs are also welcome and there are usually a bunch running around.

    I’m guessing that we will not have enough light to finish without lights for a bit so make sure to bring your helmet or bike lights.

    These rides are meant top be a mellow and good ole’ time. No stress no worries.

    Hope to see you there and feel free to reply to this thread to give us an idea of how many people to expect.

    IMO:

    When invited to an event like this, much like going to someone home for a party. I would PM cr500 in this case introduce myself and ask what I should bring to the event, and who I am bringing with me.

    Just my 2 cents!

    Whoooo, 70 deg this week and Friday looks nice. We have the propane tanks filled, my wife is making a pot of sauce, Jimmy is figuring out what he si going to smoke or grill. We'll get the fire pit ready and we should be set for the first pasta ride of the season.

    I'll hit the new/old section of Dirt Rag connector thing and clip the trees. That will make that section a done deal. Tony, Jimmy and I played on the rock ledge section of the new downhill section and there is definatly a line that is makeable. I got a front wheel all the way up and almost had my weight shifted forward with a gear or two higher I'm sure I can get the bike to the bottom bracket leaning forward. Then it will just be a lucky pull to make the top. Oh, then the turn at the top but I can worry about that on that one lucky pull.

    I made it through the birth canal for the first time in about 8 tries yesterday. If I have a bit of time maybe I'll work on that C section line it that area for Friday.

    Sorry, I'm just not a picture guy but it should be a good time Friday night.

    What a night! Thanks for a great time even with the climb from hell out of Dirt Rag! That was the hardest most technical climb in the dark I've ever done. Can't wait to suffer on it again! Mmm... Pasta with hot sausage and wine! You guys "rock"! Pun intended...

    Good job!

    It was ROCK"IN...

    ...the first HCGA Friday night pasta ride!

    Great group of riders, who got to ride the newest section of Dirt Rag trail and the other rocky wonders, as the ride started out in the light and halfway through faded into darkness making everything change quite drastically. Now all the scary things we look at during the day were hidden on the sides of the trail just waiting to grab and unsuspecting tire or pedal...

    ...the ride split at the halfway point with two different groups riding their chosen trails, nice to be able to say that since we now have enough trails to do that with still more new stuff to come...

    ...our 4 legged friends have come out in great numbers rivaling the amount to humans almost equal...

    ...everyone got out alive and Scott fried up grills and pasta cookers and we feasted. Lots of stories being traded and dogs playing around, then the campfire roared up and we surrounded the glow and heat ending a great day/night of riding!

    Thanks to all: Jimmy & Scott, HCGA, and everone who attended, it's in the books!

    Ride da Rocks...
    ...I see a pattern forming here

    We'll do it again this Friday too so anyone that wants to ride this Friday just come on over. We should be able to split into tow groups now as we have enough people that know the trails now.

    I removed the logs from the ledge portion of Dirt Rag as they were of no real use. I also cleared the sticks from High Noon and the connector. I did not get over to Volkeswagon rock yet but I should get there Thursday night. I was in the woods till 8 with no light tonight so the light lis lasting a bit longer. It was a fantastic night to be in the woods.

    Tony and I started work on the next bad idea tonight. Give it a look tomorrow at the end of Itchy Tire. It will take wome work to get cleaned up and finished but it should be pretty cool when done.

    Good job!

    Another great Friday Night ride!

    Hit Fat Dog to High Noon, Terminus, Not Dirt Rag, Hell Froze Over, Terminus, Fat Dog, Itchy Tire and then it was cook and eat time!

    Scott da Pasta man cooked up all the pasta, and Jimmy did up a bunch of smoked cheese steaks. Thanks to all for riding and donating food it was a great time!

    I'll be bringing some white wine for Dave, I'm sure he'll need it.

    Who knows, maybe I'll get crazy and bring a bike too.

    Add a couple jalapenos, wrap it up in a tortilla, and call it an Zesty Chicken Alfredo Burrito.

    Another day, another ride...

    ...riding is great.

    Can we do a really "Easy" ride like going up Itchy Tire and Dirt Rag to the top back to back? Then cut down "Not" Dirt Rag to Terminus up Hell Froze Over to Dirt Rag backwards to Itchy Tire?

    Finally freakin' made it out to the Land...

    Great trail sampling and good times, looking forward to my next visit.

    Thanks to my HCGA hosts, the Trail Gnomes, and the assorted dogs!

    Good job!

    Another one in the books!

    Lots going on over the Easter weekend at HCGA and the Friday night ride was still on even through the construction improvements going on around the property!

    Tony led the crew of riders on an ol'school loop(never though I would be able to say that, but we have lots of trails now and it stands to reason to ride the first loop we had once in a while as it's still a goodie!)

    Scott made good as a table the future stone pavers, cooking da pasta once again with mixed sauces, while Jimmy hit the ol smoker on uneven ground... LOL doing up some "double smoked" baked potatoes with chili on top YUM YUM!

    Work continued with others helping out then the fire roared up and everyone realaxed with great stories and dogs have fun chasing each other!

    Thanks to the HCGA crew for all they do and great food from everyone!

    I have added a new torture trail called Kirby named after Jimmy's dog and the way he rips through the woods at high speed, I'm sure he will enjoy his trail. Connecting to Fat Dog trail for more loop options, and challenges! Better bring your body armor and hopping skills though...

    The weather looks nice for Friday and we'll ride as usual. Come on over and give the new trail a try.

    The pavillion is still down, we have the modified down, screeted and tapped. This Saturday at 9am they will do the sand and start the pavers. Anyone that wants to help Jimmy will be there to coordinate, I'm out of town till Sunday.

    I'm going to get firewood tonight so anyone that wants to help load/unload or has a pickup and wants to help just give me a call. 570 574-2832.

    Should be a good night Friday so come on over and have some fun.

    Good job!

    Friday the 13th...

    ...proved to be a hoot of a night, minus the owl.

    Everyone attending was treated to the finished length of the new Kirby trail with almost 15 riders the lines were interesting to say the least, everybody got a chance to mix the rocks on the way up...

    ...ride divided into two groups, with Group 1 Hammer, going further up da mountain while Group 2 Jimmy's revenge, roamed around doing 3 climbs of Dirt Rag to Itchy Tire ending with a loop back up Terminus and down Kirby for a finish in a different direction on the newest rock & roll trail.

    I must say Kirby is a real super challenge going up, as it truly reflects the Ride da Rocks at Hunlock's to a "Tee"

    Dog attendance was once again trumped by the 4 Black Dogs, Kirby, Pup, Daisy, Ebony having the most members attending, Drop Kick Murphy(the dog) was also in attendance! Dozer, Buddy, Casey, and Fat Dog all had fun running around and begging for snacks, just a great sight to see so many have a blast!

    Your choice of pasta with red sauce or clam sauce and chickens as well as deserts were served then the fire was turned on and we all enjoyed the night till the wee hours!

    Thanks to all who attended, brought food, cooked and provided entertainment!

    HCGA crew a big thank you to you!

    Pics will continue to flow in...

    Friday looks to be another great night as far as weather goes, so we will do the Friday ride as usual.


    How does stick meat and corn sound to break the pasta rut?

    It'll be interesting to try Kirby out on my 29er next time.

    1/4 the squish, but only 2/3 the weight.

    Good job!

    I cleaned it coming down last week...

    ....and believe it or not the huge rocks were no trouble, the tight turn rock garden was the toughest, had to static twice, and hop a bit.

    Going up it is going to be really tough on a singlespeed

    Ride da Kirby...
    ...trail of the Black Jet

    Bring a cookie sheet and tongs to hold it over the fire.

    I may bring marshmallows, if I can find the long sticks to go with them.

    Good job!

    Jimmy and Scott hosted another HCGAFNR...

    ...with Stick Meat as the food highlight taking us back to our primal ways!

    The ride had more than 10 participants that divided into different groups and trail selections but we all started on Kirby once again! Of course all the doggies attended. Lots of rocks were ridden due the dry conditions!

    It was attrition night with 4 flat tires and one busted freehub!

    Ride da Rocks...
    ... let the pics do the talk'in

    Thanks to all

    New question here.

    Will there be a ride on 4/27/12?

    Will Kirby be conquered going up?

    Will there be ROCKS at Hunlocks?

    Will the Black Dog crew out number all humans?

    Only the shadow knows for sure!

    The rain looks to be gone for tomorrow and the wind will move in. With that being said, I'll be there tomorrow night and ready for a ride. Our trails dry well so it shouldn't be too muddy but silppery? Well you'll just have to ride to find out if it is slippery. How much more slipper can it be than going up NFS in the rain?

    The pavilion is still being finished up so if it's raining we'll skip the food. It looks like we will have a work day Saturday morning to start the paver work so maybe next week we'll be back under the pavillion.

    Had a good night Friday. We finished laying and cutting the pavers for the pavillion Saturday. We still need to pack and sand the pavers and figure out what er want to do with the front edge. Picked up the grass seed for the open dirt area next to the pavillion so maybe Jimmy will get to his horse shoe pits this summer. I have to get into the woods and add a few boards to the tee-totter and finish the skinny at hte bottom of Itchy Tire. Maybe the second moto bridge will ge tdsone this week too. Time to roost a bit I think.

    Depends if anyone is riding dirtbikes. That is a dirtbike trail and 3rd or 4th grear depending on the rider. A ride down the back property line or down from the wellhouse can get down with little time on dirtbike trail.

    Good job!

    Rain then sun, followed by rain, then sun...

    ..we get the ride in, but went old school due to thunder and not wanting to get way down in the pines!

    Ultra slippy and of course we had top try the really crazy stuff!

    Pics are flowing in...

    I'm beginning to think Kirby can't be filmed due to hyper speed warp flux integration... LOL He only shows up non blurry in still pics!

    Good riding, good food, great pics and fantastic company to ride with. I'd say it was another good night, but where was the front wheel traction?

    We'll do the Friday night ride again tomorrow night. Lee opened up a new line or two the other day and I'll get that log off of S.O.B. before the ride starts. Ronnie's raviolli were great last week and we'll see what we can get cooked up this week.

    Good job!

    Prolly the greatest night ride yet...

    ...as I got my wish to go to the "Pines" the lowest point on the property and then climb to the highest point top of Dirt Rag...

    ...once again a great group of riders showed and we started out with Fat Dog, High Noon, Itchy Tire, Dirt Rag then off the MTB trails onto a mix of Moto and the Green ATV/Beginner Moto trails, first time we have done this as an organized ride and it makes for a different kind of ride the Moto trails are narrow, rutty and rock strewn, but the Green ATV/Beginner Moto are open and wide.

    The drop down into the pines is scenic to say the least ending at a place where 2 creeks meet and very naturally air conditioned, plans are to put a pavilion down here some day as it is a fantastic place to hang!

    The climb out is steep and the middle section is the famous "Rock Road" containing baby heads and shelf rock that is very difficult to ride mostly walked or stopped for rests due to the beating the section provides.

    The finish of the climb is a root infested damn near straight up torture test that did produce two winners Bob and AJ on Fat Bikes rode unstopped to the top... GO FAT BIKES!

    Passing the highest point near Dirt Rag we ran around the back of the property on a mix of Moto/ATV trails to enter Hell Froze Over and then Terminus with a challenge ending on the newest trail "Kirby" famous for it's rather large "ROCKS"

    Hamburgs, Hot Dogs, a cheese and meat combo, chips and fruits were served for dinner...

    ...thanks to all who make it a true fun fest!
    ya missed this one...
    ...don't miss the next one

    Pics are rolling in after the vid...
    Pics start off with Happy Pup and end the night with a very tired Buddy

    Down the big back hill to the green moto trail up to any one of the options and maybe a finish down the new well house section of Dirt Rag to Itchy Tire for a down hill finish?

    What to eat is another good question?

    The weather looks nice. I may take tomorrow off and do some trail work. Jimmy said that the big back hill needs a bit of attention...

    We got in a between the storms ride. The dirt was perfect, the temps were perfect and thanks to Chuck we got out for a great ride. It was just Chuck Jimmy and I while AJ rod his dirtbike till he got a flat and then he went out to do a bit of pedaling.

    The stormrolled in as we had a few beers, some chips and cookies. Glad for the kick in the butt from Chuck to quit whining about the storm coming and just ride. Sometimes you ahve tomake lemonade...

    It looks like the weather is going to clear for the end of the week so we will ride again this Friday. Jimmy and Chuck S. rode this past Sunday. Chuck S. is another dirtbiker, trials rider and newest fat bike convert. Haven't had time to put anything new in lately but I have to burn a few vacation days soon so after the dirtbike bridge gets put in we;ll have to see about another trail or two.

    If anyone has a suggestion for food let me know. Jimmy and I are working on a smoked pork butt, pulled pork Saturday thing but we'll have to wait till after the race next weekend.

    Good job!

    Ended up last Friday looking at the rain...

    ...got nudged by the ZooZuki RL 2 fiddy tryler to get er dun!

    Almost...
    ...just gotta pop the top end back together and fire her up,(ah aircooed pleasure, easy work!) might bring that Friday. Glad it's a classic, not modern, after last night ride at Lyon with ol friend Top Cat we looked at too many ROCKS and commented, "Think ya can make that way too many times!" He can ride that Fat bike like a champ, and we know how he rides the Beta Tryler!

    Gotta get a bit more done on "my" Section 1 for Ray & Ed for the upcoming Gale Petro Memorial Moto Trials. It's got a "Knobby line" so all you harescrambler/Motcrossers can have a go at it also!

    Trails? I have the new Dozer trail almost, but I will save that for the HCGA construction thread... LOL

    I'll bring sketties and sauce!

    The weather looks great for Friday and a few days of sun should have the trail in pretty sweet shape. We'll ride again this Friday. I'm sure I'll do better than at the Luzern Crit last Sunday.

    We'll ride again tonight. I have the day off so I'll head up and fix my daughter's flat then do a bit of trail work. Maybe a nap in the hamock before the ride.

    It looks like Friday will be a nice night with some heat. We'll ride again this Friday. Itchy tire has been fully weedwacked and leaf blown. The VW rock line is now cleared. The bottom section that was started is now finished so there is no more road. The 4" skinny is cleared and both field enterences are wide open. The junction to Dirt Rag is almost cleared so a run from the well house down is almost ready. I still have to finish up the chainsaw skinny though.

    I'm off Friday again so I'll work on clearing the top section of Dirt Rag from Itchy Tire to the off camber drop or maybe down to the next road crossing. Heat will decide the distance...

    Stop by if you want to ride this Friday usual time, 6PM.

    The weather looks nice for Friday night so we will put on a ride and something to eat. I wonder if I can convince Jimmy to smoke up some chicken wings?

    Friday can be a tough to make a ride happen so if anyone would like to do a ride on a weekend day let me know and we can figure out something. Also we have been talking about doing a mt bike weekend where we can put on some rides at our place and mOOm and use our place for camping and such. If a weekend long thing is of interest, let me know.

    Karen:

    Your just fine, HCGA is a fun, stop, talk, go, stop, talk, go, type of riding with entertaining challenge sections, but all the "talking and stop" sections are uphill too... LOL

    Good job!

    So Friday the13th...
    ...wasn't so scary after all

    Great group tonight, had fun playing on the super dry sections. Interesting route as we found lots of downhill, many 4 legged friends and everyone dined on Pasta!

    Thanks Scott, Jimmy...
    ...and the rest of the best

    PS: check out the Brand new bent Moto sprocket of Jimmy's, yes it's a heavy gauge steel, but Ride da Rocks did it in!

    Cutting of trees purposely grown in a place to provide "hurt" is prohibited at HCGA...

    ...we will add more "ROCKS" to remedy the situation

    Jimmy says it looks like Friday will be wing night, bring your own sauce. If anyone brings wings and we have too many we can feeze the extras and have another wing night.

    I'm out of town till late tomorrow so I won't be around for a ride tomorrow night. Unless Jimmy is able to host a ride tomorrow night I'd say our ride will be canceled tomorrow night unless Jimmy postes otherwise. Maybe we can put on a ride Sunday if there is any interest.

    Due to preparation for the BMER fun run this Saturday I won't be riding this Friday 7-27. Marty waived his finger at me and now I have to work getting last minute things together. Sorry for the late notice. On a side note we should have horseshoe pits built by the next ride so bring your game.

    Thanks

    Good job!

    Great ride tonight...

    ...the new Dozer trail worked out to be a quicker way to the top, and we rode a new figure 8 coming down the fun part of Dirt Rag that we usually climb up, then re-climbed back up to High Noon over to Terminus then Itchy Tire. This really opens up possibilities of many different loops.

    "5" section is a real snot, you are really beat from the climb up Dozer, and the gaps in it are tough to manage being all out of air. It's gonna take some skill to get it cleaned.

    Jimmy and Scott had 5 different kinds of Pizza cooked up on the grill, Yum Yum! Then it was Ice Cream time!

    Guys you are the best!

    Not sure about a Friday ride this week as we have old friends coming in from Atlanta. We will ride Thursday night. Neil Chapman and Dylan will be there so come on up and have a ride with one of the original owners. It should be a great night.

    Dunno,

    after the drag racing at da mOOn last night...

    ...might be tough back to back hill climbing. If it's any reward I rode a silly geared bike, at mOOn, only used 3 gears though, at least it was rigid... LOL

    Would be nice to see old friends Neil and Dylan...

    If ya see me...
    ...I'm there!

    Can ya see me, can ya!

    Yes, folks I was there, Scott was there, Jimmy was there, Ed was there, Fat Dog, Kasey, and Kirby were there! The ROCKS were there! The Hills were there!

    Rode Fat Dog, High Noon, Dozer, DirtRag(down)Woo Hoo, up Dirt Rag(Boo Hoo) Itchy Tire to Itchy Tire and down Fat Dog, then watched ED rip the pond with a really fast electric powered RC speedboat. Kirby barked and swam after it only to find out he isn't the Black Water Jet... LOL

    Thanks for the invite...
    ...great ride once again

    Some pics are blurry due to darkness creeping in...

    We will Ride again this Friday, Not sure if we will cook this Friday as my daughters will be working the at the Luzerne County Fair and I'm not sure what type of commitment they will set me up for.

    Is anyone is in the mood for a weekend long kind of event where we would open our place up for camping and riding. We are close enough to Moon to do rides at both places. We can set-up an on-your-honor 6 Days/Trials event where sections are laid out and riding between is casual and each group can score other members. There is also a good bit of trail to allow for an Enduro style event where we would start at the top and use a predominately downhill course and time each rider.

    As always good pot-luck dinner/lunch always sounds like a good day to me.

    Let me know if there is any interest as the camping season is coming to a close

    Enduro course...
    ...top of Dirt Rag, to the road, pedal up(aka pedaling section)to High Noon, Lower Itchy Tire down Fat Dog, or cross road to Bouncing Betty down. If this is too long just start at High Noon eliminating much of the pedaling section.

    We will need timing system or cells at least to time riders.

    Six Day Trials...
    ...I can lay out 6 sections with 3 lines in each Beg, Inter, Ex

    Enduro Course:

    Cells and a laptop is what I was thinking at most and each rider down would have to help out with time keeping a bit. There are a bunch of ways down. What about DR to Not DR to HighNoon backwards to lower Itchy to Fat Dog to the wood to the new trail that hits the pond. We could also do the Well House down the new section of DR to Itchy down. Anything is fine with me and we can drive to the top of all of them.

    6 Days:

    I'm always up for getting on top of something... Rocks, logs or a bit of wooden trail

    It all sounds good to me. I have tomorrow off so I'm going to meet Jimmy up there to do somew kind of trail work..

    1. A speed trials on the Woody(fastest one lap)timed must stay on the Woody
    2. A Super Enduro challenge(timed)
    3. A simple "observed trials" for all to try
    4. A skinny challenge(a low wide skinny for all to try)prolly have to fashion one!
    5. A hill climb challenge(HELL FROZE OVER)from the Terminus intersection to the top by the teetertotter(timed)

    Regular rides at HCGA day/night
    Long ride from HCGA to mOOn and back

    We will ride this Friday evening as usual, ride will leave around 6pm. Lights will help as it is getting dark early now. There are plenty of ways out of the woods for those that don’t have lights and want to drop early. We got some old trail cleared and tuned last week. I may take a day this week and start work clearing the next area to be built. A skinny play area is in the works. There will be a bunch of skinnys with a good amount of easy and safe ones for people to start sharpening their skinny skills.

    It's the only fire pit you will see people sitting on the rocks with their feet inside the ring...

    Lee I was thinking of a few skinnys over the stone wall too... A hole and pipe like the other tee-totter should work and Craig and I came up with a design for a way large tree kind of teeter-totter with a pipe and notch kind of fulcrum that is held in place with the weight of the log. Lots of bad ideas for good fun…

    I talked with Jimmy last night and we came up with the 29th and 30th as a workable date that fits our schedules.

    We’ll do a Mountain Bike weekend at our place the 29th and 30th. We’ll camp, ride and EAT… We’ll get some more information posted in the next few days, but for those that have wanted to give HCGA a try and have not been able to make Friday nights, this is your chance. We have hot showers, flush toilets, eclectic, water and plenty of room. Lee, Jimmy and I have been throwing around some ideas for a few play events for those that may want to do that and the trails will be there to pedal for those that just want to ride.

    Good job!

    Da ride...

    ... AJ, Canadian Chuck, and Scott hit the mountain tonight. Fat Dog, Terminus, High Noon, Itchy Tire, with a tour through the new roughed in(less filling)Skinny Lounge!

    Myself? I rode around on the quad talking pics of the heros! Guess I did too much skinny building, but none the less, it worked good as it gave me a different perspective as the quad doesn't fit on the trails, so pics are from different locations.

    Jimmy is back from his golf vacation and we are thinking of doing our ride tomorrow afternoon around 1 then working on the skinny section after that. If anyone is free and wants to ride tomorrow afternoon stop by about 1. If anyone wants to help set the tree skinny's we have ready feel free to come on over and get dirty. I'm sure we could use aome more man/women power.

    Any chance of a MTB snow cross or Moto Ride...
    ...Sunday 12/30/12 around noon?

    Really I'm looking forward to hurting my hands screwing in thousands of tire studs, but "Scratching Rocks" is a way of getting even ya know!

    LOL

    The water will be down for a bit so I will have to gather everything in the take it home dirty to clean box. We are a bit early to start the actual pasta ride yet but if we have a real nice looking Friday we may put something on. I am out of town this Friday but will be back for the weekend so maybe a ride this weekend? I'll give the weather a look.
