Back O' The Pack had a fun ride tonight.  We climbed Staley and Rothrock, then descended Four Logs and Turtle.  From left to right in the pic above are Scott, Peter, Brian, Alex, Chris and Matt.

Can you post directions to the meeting place or start. Thanks.

I'll be there.
I figured after Saturday this is a fitting name.

I'll be in town this week and I'm going to try to make it also.

Could you please give directions to Teaberry lot, or if you're planning on leaving from Mont Alto, what time there?

I think we should ride from the Mont Alto parking lot which is just past the Mont Alto Penn State campus on Route 233. Just across from the parking lot is a circular pavilion that is easy to spot. This will make it easier to get everyone together and to start on time. Let's be ready to ride at 5:00pm. Plan to ride for about 2 hours. Bring plenty of water and some energy food to eat just before and during the ride.

Wow Scott. You've really got something positive going here. Way to take the initiative and make it happen.

Slowride said...

We had a great ride. Everyone made the climb ez and hit what they could could on the way down. Thanks again Scott.

Matt you should give the Dark Hollow race a whirl this Sunday. You are the fastest beginner I have seen going up hill. You are ready to tear up the 10 miler, you probably would do pretty well at the 20 miler also.

Matt said...

I wish i could do the race this sunday, but my family is having a get together at the same time in delaware so i will be out of town. Otherwise i would be all over it, i really enjoyed the long pine classic race a couple weeks back.

Who are these Back o' the Pack riders?

prophet said...

The "Back O' The Pack" is just the name I've given to rides I am organizing that are in addition to the regular Thursday and Sunday rides. It's for beginners, people who want to put in some extra work to bring up their skills or fitness, etc.. This past Tuesday we rode 7.5 miles of a fire road climb and singletrack descent. Last week we road the Sport loop of the Long Pine Classic. I try to adjust the ride difficulty to suit whoever shows up. The main reason I call it "Back O' The Pack" is that is where I always am on regular club rides. :-)
