Crazy Canadians thought it was Christmas yesterday. Came across this small festival in Brockville, Ontario yesterday.
Cool Santa giving rides to the kids...

Todays ride Windsor NY to Thompson PA

Don't know how I've never seen this viaduct before, it's the nicest in the area I think. Pretty well hidden. The guy leading our ride today found it last week.

Starucca Viaduct...





Further down the trail...










Great ride today. My thanks to Bob for leading us around.

Great shots of the viaduct. Have to go check out that area.

I spent most of this AM riding along the ridges by Blue Mountain ski area. Gorgeous country and a great day for riding.

Thanks for sharing, as always.

The weather has been outstanding here lately. The last week never got over the high 70's and the forecast is showing the next 10 days with highs under 80. I'll take that all year long.

I did change layers a few times today which is very unusual in August.

The viaduct in todays post is off the beaten path. The one in Nicholson is right on Rt11 and better known...

I'm giving serious thought to moving down there. You gotta give me better incentive than that. I know it won't be as good as this area but I've seen some interesting back roads on other reports down in Florida. I'm heading down in October to have a look around. Kids moved there so that's the only reason I'm even considering that area.

I'm not sure exactly where the falls pic was but I think it was near Thompson, PA. The falls are on private property but the owner doesn't mind people going there. It's right along the rail trails somewhere. I was following someone who laid the tracks out so didn't know where I was half the time. The Starrucca Viaduct is near Lanesboro and can be seen on mapquest with satellite view.

Bald Eagle Bastards

Finally got met meet the BEB's and had a great time riding and partying this weekend. The trails are rocky as hell but apparently doable with the DR and limited dirt experience. I was thrilled getting through the one unplanned single track without dropping it.
The Bastards really know how to throw a party. Nicely done.

Rocks are biggers than they appear in photos



Dinnertime...



still can't believe he made it through that trail...





waiting for the scouting party to return with trail info...



non-boulder trail...





Last time all I could see was rain and fog here...





Nice meeting everyone done there.
