Michaux Ride

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday.
I am going exploring the forest. Leaving Walkersville about 6:30 or 7am. I do not know much about these roads but will by the end of the day. If someone wants to show me around, that would be cool. I am excited to learn a new territory.

I only mapped within Cumberland County with the approach roads into the state forests. The printed and online official state forest maps cover their roads better than Garmin does.

I'll attach the file to an email to you. I sent a PM to you asking for the address.

Jax, thanks for the advice. I rode up early Sunday morning and had a good time. Explored some of the gravel roads. Was a little slippery in places due to recent mother nature activity. But my street tires did good. I have to go back and check out the rest of them now.

Sorry if you showed up last night and were alone. I will also miss next 2 weeks and I could use a fill in to lead the rides. Is anyone interested?

It never even rained at all on the north side of the valley. Too stinking hot. I never even unloaded the bike this weekend

I want to thank SoPaRider for the guided tour yesterday and Jax for getting a couple of us MD FFs and one DE FF to the Forest.

A few pics.

SoPaRider, badguy, Jaxobsessed, and TomC.

Thanks! It's a Samsung Galaxy S3 I got from work. It still amazes me that they squeeze this kind of image quality from such small, cheaply produced cameras.
