Huge thanks to Wayne for leading the best ride I've had in a very long time on Friday! Another Huge thanks to Tim for lending me his superpimp hammock! ScottyP for all your efforts throughout the weekend on food, organization, and making sure everyone felt loved before they went to bed.... Torks and Ashley for hosting the late night after party and PIE!! Can't wait till next year!!

Based on Jax's excellent pictures so far I'm pretty elusive when camera's are out hahah.

P.S. I'll be pulling Wayne's Friday trail off the GPS tonight, PM me your email if you want a copy. I have Beantops email, and So far I know the list below are interested:

WayneJ
H14
ScottyP
Beantop
Please add me to the list. Next time the bike I ride will be appropriately tired.

You would not be a happy camper doing one section on the Tiger no matter what tires were on it.

It looks like everyone had a great time! I wish I could have been there. Hopefully nothing will happen and I can make it to camp cow crap. I'm really looking forward to Saturdays ride.

Thanks so much to Torks and Torkside for the delicious vittles. ScottyP was top notch with his candy van spread as usual. Karl's poppers were kick'n.

450+mi on the lil 50 that could

Okay...picture time - bear with me.

Heading through Hume Rd on my way to Fri night camp. The sun setting and the twisty valley roads were a perfect way to relax after a long week at work.


I camped up at Wolf Gap and set out before first light. Sunrise over Wardensville.


Going 30mph, you notice way more. I had never seen this car off Gandy Creek before.


Steve (and blixa close behind) coming through one of my favorite valleys




On our way to the Sinks of Gandy


"It looks like Ireland up here!"


Blixa found the most appropriate location for the Tiger's nap...a dirt road in WV on a tight rutted turn. Way better than a Starbucks parking lot(te)!


Picked up a ton of these while having fun!


Some PA Riders I swapped paths with on the way up Spruce Knob.




I thought this horse was dead but it wasn't there when I returned. Made me feel better.


Brushy Run Rd is hard to beat. I am hard to beat on Brushy Run


I spent 30 minutes exactly here just watching the clouds buzz past.


Jax enjoying the view.


I found a carving of WayneJ by nature.


In this hollow I always wanted to explore over five years of coming here. This time I actually did.


The flowers were beautiful and quite fragrant if you got on your knees inches from the ground




CR40


Everyone who came in from Spruce Knob passed this barn. Did you stop and look?




Littlelionmonster and frickenmotarded hike up the Laurel River Trail toward the plane wreck.


Ramps-a-plenty




The C-45






Unedited.


We found the remains of someone's camp down by the river. It appeared to have been there all winter so we packed up the trash and hauled it out of the woods.


Some of the fine taters and ramps


Diane's Coconut Cream Pie anyone?


The happy couple


Lowest rung on the wire.




A Petersburg, WV Snapshot.


Malibu?


Salute!


Howard's Lick Rd offered a great lunch opportunity.


Not what you think it is


I ran into a few cycling buddies of mine coming up from Lost River. Small world to see a coworker out here on a random road in WV!


Mike is killing it! He rides a Ducati Multi (or used to)


That Forsynthia and Willow have been there a long long time.




Thanks for coming along!


Don't forget to watch out for potholes!

I agree!
Beautiful pics, HBN. #2 is my favorite. And thanks again for hammering out my gear lever. I ordered a folding one yesterday. I hope that'll help in the future

Don't feel too bad. I recall helping Bloochdog pick up his F800 in that exact corner.
