    Going Postal?!

    Went on-line to buy stamps and saw that the USPS will soon be selling an "Enjoy the Great Outdoors" stamp book w/ one stamp featuring a mountain biker. Even though the rider is on two lane blacktop, and rolling thru what appears to be Mars or maybe even the painted desert, it's still a nice...

    I'm guessing that was a joke. :) Wear the tallest socks you can find and spray them down good. Don't stop and don't put your feet down until you arrive at the next sand road. The worst part of tick season (because of the nymph ticks) is mid-August to late September. Explore the sand and gravel...

    ‘72 to ‘76 is when we had a klunker crew. Riding the sand roads In the area. And then riding out to the beaches in AC and Brigantine.

    Bike shops can still operate with closed / locked doors.

    In the early ‘70s, the local h/w store in EHC would have all their lower end shotguns and rifles chained up, on display in a barrel in the aisle. The large sharp cutlery was hanging up by the shelves. But that was long before anyone put compasses in the handle of anything. I was there because...

    Did you then start collecting knives, axes, swords and other large pieces of sharp metal? 😅

    As directed by WSF staff, this piney has been staying home and riding his backyard trails. I read on another forum that the SPP and the Troopers had to search and rescue some folks. Do you know if they were the MTBers? Either way, I'm guessing they were shoobies, not pineys. Pineys call a...

    All the usual tadpole ponds will be full. The trails should be dry by Saturday afternoon. If you find yourself riding in a wet sand slurry, please take @Davesnhere advice and ride the double track. You'll likely encounter blowdowns and brush. And ticks. Spray up, the ticks are out. maps...

    A friend worked at a local big box store while in high school. The manager put him in charge of bicycle assembly his second week on the job. He didn't learn anything about bicycles until he got his first Trek MTB twenty years later. Several month's later he bought his son's first bicycle at a...
