Did somebody say bacon?

Really? Why must I choose? The right thing to do is replace "or" with "and".

This Blog needs photo's of Kittens!

It's ok if your post includes a photo

like Brandon , the Specialized mtb product line manager, styling the entry to Iceberg F2 on his first attempt
or MBM'er David Kegley rolling it on Heaven or Hell.
or me rolling a rock on Iceberg
Pictures are good.

2011 is going to rock!!!

I just sent out the 2011 annual meeting notes. We have great plans for this year and you can be a part of them. It's $10 a year to learn the trails, join group rides, help improve trails and learn from some of the top riders in the area. Its a small price to pay for a lot of fun!
Come join a ride and check out MBM.
If you think you need to be a pro to ride with us you're wrong. Watch the blog for Tuesday night rides. We've all been there and you won't get better if you don't commit. Why watch when you can ride???


Well with the weather we maybe able to ride Sunday. Snow is melting fast so how about Caledonia. We can do secret trail and some stuff on top. Ride time 9am

Just when things were finally clearing up

I came home from work this morning to another 10" of snow here in central Michaux.  The good news is with sun out it's already compacted to 6" in less then 6 hours.  Say your prayers to the warm weather gods so we can ride!

Where have I seen this before??

This wood looks a little cleaner than other woods I've seen on this site.
This one, however, achieved a lot more penetration!

Joe and I are going to the swap for a while and riding at hashawa for a bit afterwards.Hashawa is about 5 miles north of westminster on rt 97. It is a lot of short to moderate hill repeats. We plan to do about 10 miles. If anyone is interested call my cell 717 479 3080 we don't have a time planned. I guess it depends on how fast we can spend the money from our piggy banks at the swap.

Backpackers of Michaux?

I am planning an overnight backpacking trip for next weekend Feb.12-13 somewhere within our beloved Michaux. We will probably hike between 7-10 miles each day. So far it`s just Samson and myself but anyone is welcome to join us. The exact route and camp spot are yet to be determined. So if anyone has been missing their backpacking/camping fix like I have been and are ready to brave the cold (looks like overnight temps could push the limits of my 15 degree bag) leave a comment or shoot me an email at


Sunday bird man will be leading a ride from Big Flat. He wants to follow the four wheeler trails and try not to get run over. But they might be ride able. Ride time 9am. I might see ya up there but my fat ass will be on my Kawasaki. I'll run blocker.
