I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I wanted to see what kind of interest there was for doing a ride new years eve. For a past couple years a few of us ventured into the woods a couple hours before midnight and road to a pretty sweet lookout spot along middle ridge road were you can see a least 3-4 firework displays at midnight. After that then riding to a predesignated beer stop and possible campfire stop. The past years its been pretty fun and I would like to continue and grow this tradition.
And feel free to forward this on to anyone else you think might be interested.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are plan on going.
Hey Ya'll, coming up soon I've got a few little cross races planned for around here.
THIS SUNDAY is a free cross race at new frontiers just outside of carlisle. Bonfire, potluck food, and maybe the octobong (the legendary beverage dispenser from dirtfest party boat) out on some singletrack. There's several categories, prizes hidden in the woods, and the unofficial trail doggie world champs. Things go off at 10am. 51 people are signed up already.

Saturday January 5th: PhillySSWC'13 Semi-Invitational Kick-Off SingleSpeedaTerrificNess Cross Race!!! If you haven't heard, SS Cross Worlds are coming to philly in 2013. This is part of a big effort to get some stoke on for the one geared skinny tired knobbies. We've been building some trail and a pump track out at Ralph's in Chambersburg. I think he's got plans of sharing his little lunch time mecca-to-be, and this is a good chance to come hang out, drink some beer, watch some idiots, and have some fun. This one isn't free to race, but we can try to get the pump track rolling smooth if its dry enough because that is free. https://www.bikereg.com/Net/17753
Just some fun local stuff going on in the next couple weeks.
I am not planning on the world still being around.
See ya'll in the next life.
Seriously though, no regular Sunday ride is being scheduled. If anybody wants to lead a ride, go ahead and post it.
Was thinking either a redo on last week's classic Caledonia ride, or a trip north from big flat with a little 3 mile (maybe in both directions?).
Let's hear some votes!!
It'll be a 9am start. I will decide Saturday morning.
****Added Sat am****
Alright, there it is. It'll be Caledonia. See you all there.
Thursday we will ride out of Big Flat lot at 5:30pm. The plan is to roll out a casual loop, then return to the lot for beverages, hang out and view the Geminid meteor shower which peaks out on Thursday night. With forcasted clear skies, a new moon and a wide open lot on top of a mountain, conditions couldn't be more well suited for spectating the shower. There's talk of cooking food over a campfire as well, so bring your meat n prongs! This will be an evening gathering in Michaux that you will not want to miss!!!
If only I'd had this idea at Halloween! Over the last week I've become aware that quite a few of my mountain bike brethren are, like me, not so secretly addicted to the TV show "The Walking Dead". Some of you have not been able to watch season 3 so I am coming to the rescue.
So, this Thursday night, we will watch at least the first four episodes of season 3 starting at 6:00pm.
We will provide Pizza and a case of beer. If you have some kind of snacks you'd like to bring or something non-alcoholic to drink besides water please feel free. Please post a response to this thread with your pizza preference if you intend to come so I know how many and what kind of pizzas to get.
Sorry to conflict with the usual Thursday night club ride but this just needs to be done!
