1st annual Pennsylvania "ICE" Ralley!!! Febuary 20-22.. 09

"ICE"= Insanely Cold Event!!!


This is going to be the 2nd to the last weekend in Febuary.. Ive been googling and searching for cabins/hotels in the center most section on the state for this..

I figure, this will be needed for most for sanitiy issues over the winter time... Fire up your heated clothes or just pile on all your fleece.!! Riders only please..

The main goal will be to have fun with your fellow inmates... If we only ride for a hour, so be it! This will give us somthing to long for over the cold January..

Suggestions are highly recomended for a cool spot to host this, but remember, my goal is to keep it in the middle of the state...

greg

UPDATE: SKYCLAD HAS BOOKED 4 ROOMS NEAR STATE COLLEGE

1ST ROOM SKYCLAD AND ? IN THE ONLY RESERVED SMOKING ROOM
2ND ROOM DISCONNECTED AND BMW318TECH
3RD ROOM KNIGHTOFNI and Beantop
4TH ROOM ? AND ?

This has potential.

The State College area looks to be central. Any ideas from the local inmates?

A ski lodge might be an interesting place for a group of bikes to roll into. Or any hotel with a bar and restaurant.

There is a ski area just outside State College. Tussey Mountain is just off Rt 322. However, the web site says they have no lodging on site.

There are lots of hotels in the State College area, not to mention plenty of watering holes with college girls.

The riding around State College is pretty good. Depending on the weather and road conditions, I could lead a ride back through Rothrock SF on lots of interesting fire roads.

That could go either way. Depends on what sort of evening activities you had in mind.

Could be interesting. That will be the weekend of my 30th birthday, so I don't know what I'll be doing. I could always ride up and make all you fucks buy me a beer

I'm not a big fan of riding my overweight pig in the snow, but cold weather certainly wouldn't keep me away. Commuted 56 miles one morning last winter at 7 degrees. Got some pretty weird looks on the highway that morning. I'll bet I was warmer than most of the people in their cars.......ahhh Gerbings

Greg, just book a ski house at Blue Knob.


If the ad says sleeps 10, your good for 25 or so...

There's enough of us on here now thanks to the Tag-O-Rama game that we can come up with something for you.

What is more important - camping somewhere cool with cabins, or being in downtown with the people?

If you want to be out there, Black Moshannon has a bunch of cabins up there. Problem is you're screwed if you run out of beer.

so the lesson is "use the tankbag for clothes, use the saddlebags, top cases, and panniers for beer."

i know i can get around 4.5 cases of cans on the duc without an issue, i havne't tested the beer ferrying limits of the XR yet though. the forecast will determine which bike is ridden.


btw - yes, i know i'm being difficult, do you mean 2/28 or 2/21?

Delivery? Or Digiorno?

Or, I could just cage a couple kegs up to where you are.

Consider staying downtown so all of your pursuits of fun are just a stroll away.

There are lots of places to stay and plenty of places to partake of the festivities.

Don't forget the Endzone Club where the poor college girls supplement their tuition!
