Thursday night ride recap

Clown, Mooch, Greg (new guy in Cburg) and I crossed 233 and did Half Track, Lost Creek, Lee's Rocks, the Narrows and Park Trail. The guys loved hiking on Half Track so much that they came up with some new names! It was nice riding at night without lights for the first hour. Heck, it wasn't even cold!

I emailed Sandie about our ride. She says - "I want to ride Ass Crack too!!" Hmmm...

Big Log

It's no wonder

It's no wonder nobody ever rides with these guys on Thursday nights. Can you believe they took a new guy on Lee's Rocks and the Narrows IN THE DARK.

Actually the new guy Greg was on a sweet Vassago 29er hardtail and was well prepaired to ride Michaux. Thanks for riding with us Greg.

Shed on Sunday

Off the reservation this Sunday for the bravehearted.

Thursday Night Ride

Big Log ,the Mooch and myself will be leaving the Mont Alto parking lot @ 5:00. It will be a mellow pace and the weather will be great. Even if you don't have lights you can get an hour and a half ride in.


SUNDAY Pine Grove Furnace.......Meet at the Furnace Parking lot.......Ride time 9am.......I'm not sure if I will be there(not that it maters) . If you can't get a T- Shirt I have socks in my possession for 5 bucks.

Funny how the T-shirt poll turned out - 34 voters on how I was spending their T-shirt money when only 14 people have actually ordered a shirt. If you want one, go to BikeReg and order it now. For those 14 who have already ordered you will have your choice of two designs: the regular Michaux shirt and the limited edition "PABIKER Stole My T-Shirt Money" design. I will send an email those who have that option. After 3/1 you can purchase the regular "Michaux" T-shirts only via my Blog (at a much higher price) - happy shopping!

Michaux Mash Preride on Saturday

Michaux Mash

I have seen more than one question concerning what the course is like. Well, if you're curious, come out on Saturday, Feb 28, and see what it is.

We will meet and start from the boat launch parking lot off Milesburn Road at Long Pine Reservoir. Ride start time is 9:00 so please be ready to ride by 9:00. We will ride up Milesburn Road to Ridge Road to the actual race start and then ride one lap of the course as a group. After the first lap, if people want to, they can ride it again at their own pace. One lap is 9 miles. We will ride 2-3 miles to reach the course start.

Please let us know if you plan to show up. We will only wait at the start for those that RSVP!

The race proceeds go to help support the Cyclesports Fast Forward Developmental Mountain Bike Team.

Do it for the kids!

Another Big Bike for a Little Lady

While we're wife's new ride.

Yet another big bike

I think you may have joined the cult before I did, T. Here's my new baby.

Latest Clown Bike

I finally got a picture of my Clown Bike. Even after riding it I still consider it a clown bike. My only regret is getting in too late and not getting a good Clown name. all the good ones have already been taken.......Bozo....Clara Bell.........Crusty.

Color Change

I changed the format and color. I couldn't handle the dark brown and pink anymore. I hope this is acceptable to everyone.

Hey gang;
This Sunday will be at Mont Alto. Ride time 9am. Following a good ride to clear our heads we will meet at Witters for our once a year meeting. The meeting will start around 1am for those who can't ride but want to come to the meeting.

Who's Into the Mash?

I'm wondering if anybody is planning on doing this. I've been injured lately, but am hoping to be back in time for this. Does anybody know the course or any other details?
Catch you on the trails soon!!

And maybe Buc_SS_exy....

I'm posting up for Donna here...

"Yeah, this is last minute and the MBM meeting is on Sunday, but I've wanted to go to a Women's MTB clinic for a long time now.

Brett is planning on representing us at the meeting and I will give him my ideas...but on to the meat of the post... (we have ideas? holy smokes!--b)

February 19-22…leave Thursday afternoon/evening and return Sunday:

Friday is Free and Women ONLY!! (until 4pm)

Saturday and Sunday are half price $10.50 to ride per day for ladies (could possibly leave Sunday am after breakfast--maybe home in time for the club meeting!)

Rooms at the Holiday Inn are $69 (incl. tax) and max is 4 per room (check out Ray's website)

I have room for 1 more in my car and if more are interested we can caravan.

Call or email Donna at 717-571-7111 or donna DOT weiser AT gmail DOT com (you can figure it out--I have faith in you) "


Well I gave this alot of thought. I guess we will do secret from Caledonia. Meet at Caledonia Ride time 9am.

The light

I've seen the light. 29er's rule. SS ain't too far behind. Thanks Jody for being the cool guy that you are and letting me ride your extra SS clownbike for awhile. Now if I can only coerce the Mrs. into letting me get one or maybe two...

Hey All;
The ride will be at Mont Alto again. The snow should melt pretty good this weekend so we can get back to riding other locations. Don't forget about the MBM meeting the 22nd. Ride time 9am.

Icy ride

Slippery this morning.... Joel was heading to Lowes for screws after the ride. Is anyone thinking about doing 'Michaux Mash' March 15th? Has anyone done it before? Registration is $60!
