Something kicked my ass too, TP. My eyes were so red, they looked like I was smoking something.

Hey Jax really nice shots of your ride today!
Just wondering if you noticed this problem.

Link error message

Hey Jax
FYI the map of south Michaux on page one goes to an error page, so I went to the source and this link seems to be a good one now.

Thanks
Chris

Thank you Chris! I have fixed the link. It seems that every time the State changes webmasters the links change too..... .
I have saved copies on my computer so as to avoid having to research where they hid them.

Oh and I saw the crew grading and placing new gravel on Swift Run Road. I got to ride on the virgin gravel... Squirrelly goodness.

Saturday Ride

Took a great ride through Michaux, Tuscarora, and Buchanan on Saturday.



It was about 150 miles total and mostly dirt except travel across the valley.

Found a few vistas













Saw a few sights







and found many different non-tarmac riding surfaces. Only bad part of the ride was seeing the Hemlocks devastated by the blight in hemlock natural area.

It was a great day overall and I wasn't even that sore today!

Kind of hard to tell from this map, but it look like you went past my summer home around P

The state should post some signs about road work ahead for us unsuspecting bikers.

Saw a first for me yesterday despite living at the edge of Michaux for 15 years. On Ridge Road just south of Shippensburg Road the state forest ranger had a pickup truck pulled over. The ranger had his gumball lights on and was issuing a ticket. I wonder what that was about?

The state keeps pleading poverty, but they sure have a lot of money to spend on fresh gravel. I think they are laying it down thicker and looser this year in Michaux than ever before.

Maybe the ticket money pays for gravel.

Thanks for the post Crichton. Nice work! I think this thread is under utilizing the other SoPa Forests.
