Hey guys, how many PA riders are crazy enough for a muni ride between christmas and new years?
I was talking to SqueakyOnion about setting up a ride over thanksgiving, but it didn’t pan out, so this seemed like the next logical possibility. Depending how this pans out, it’d be fun to do it more often.
So here’s the idea, I’ve been scouting some trails @ Mount Gretna, and i’ve got a couple of route options we could choose from based on the skill levels of whoever shows up. Now I’d like to find out who would like to come, and what dates would work for everybody.
I ride these trails pretty often, and there is a huge variety of terrain for any skill level.
Munimag, I’m pretty sure there will be a little snow on the trail, the same storm that dumped the snow on you left us with about 8 inches. Last night it rained so there’s probably a little less now, and these trails get fairly heavy traffic so I don’t imagine snow will be a problem.
I just rode with my cousin in northern pa where most of the trails had 2 inches of hard crust over 3 of powder making them unridable. We rode on some larger multi-use ‘trails’ that seemed to get some 4x4 travel occasionally. They had 2 inches of powder on top of ice, making for a tiring ride (you really had to watch your balance or your unicycle would suddenly shoot out from under you) it was a lot of fun!
