    A gypsy and her list obsession

    Shopping lists, to-do lists, places-to-ride-in-NJ list, Bike Parks in North America list, they go on. I love making lists. I like writing them on a physical piece of paper using an actual pen. If it’s a long-term list, I’ll resort to digitizing it. Something about checking items off is extremely...

    Old Cycling Shoes to Donate or Giveaway Free

    I have several old pair of riding shoes, mostly kid/women sizes (sizes range from 38-41). Does anyone know somewhere in/near Hunterdon County that I can donate these? Or does anyone want to come take them for free?

    Steroid injections for bike-induced Carpal Tunnel

    Over the years of riding, I have developed bike-induced Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. I think I’ve read others on the board experiencing the same problem. Spending the last several summers down-hilling has exasperated the issue. I also suffer from Raynaud’s Disease. So, between the two, I can’t do any...

    Fairmount (Belmont) Park Philly

    I'm going to be in Philly this weekend and considering riding Fairmount Park on Sunday. Anyone know the conditions? Is it ridable? Is it worth riding? I've never been. Any input, like direction to ride, would be appreciated.

    Mt Creek and rain

    First, does anyone know if this is the last weekend Creek is open? Second, if it rains do they usually close? I don't want to drive all the way up there tomorrow and have it close. Website is very uninformative.

    Riding RV soon?

    If you are riding RV anytime soon (which may be the only place ridable with all this rain), please lookout for a pair of black rim, clear lens Oakleys. I lost them today somewhere between the middle and top of puke hill. If you find them please be genuine and PM me, I'll give you a beer...

    Need some South Jersey advice

    I'm going to be in South Jersey (Cape May) and would like to squeeze in a ride tomorrow with my son. Estell Manor seems to be the closest. Will that place be a swamp after all this rain? Will it be an advantage for me to drive further to say Wharton and ride there? I have never ridden...

    Idlewood, PA

    I rode Idlewood, behind the Neshaminy High School, last night and had a blast. Anyone have any Garmin data for this place? Preferably the race course that the MASS Guy's Neshaminy Classic follows? Actually any data would do. I only rode 8.5miles due to the heat, but I led myself into several...

    where did the rocks go?

    I'm riding up puke hill today and actually asking myself, "why did I used to think this was so hard"?? Then it occurred to me how 'smooth' it was. I think someone went a handpicked all the 'looser' rocks off of puke hill. So I started to pay closer attention. About 5.5 miles into the park...

    I tasted the Kool-aid and loved it!

    I just may be moving over to the Darkside in the near future. Let me start off by saying that I'm 5'4" and a half. The past three days I've been testing out a borrowed small Giant 29er. The bike comes in a XS also. When I parked the 29er next to my Fisher 26er, the seat height and...

    Salisbury, MD -Naylor Mill Park

    I discovered a very cool little park down in Maryland last week, called Naylor Mills Park. The eastern shore of Maryland is flat as a pancake, so I never dreamed I would find a good place to ride. To my surprise, this park was only 2.5 miles from my in-laws house and very cool. The place...

    idiots guide to changing a road flat

    I'm not at all a techy..... I can change my MTB tubes/tires, I can change my own brake pads, that's about it. I just love to ride. Anyway, after one full year of riding my 'new' road bike I finally had a flat. Luckily I was at home. Removing the tire and tube was no problem at all...

    How to build skinnies, ladders, etc?

    Does anyone know of a site with information on how to build structures such as skinnies, ladders, teeter-totters, etc.? I would like to build some of these in my back yard to help me work on my balance. My kids are pretty excited about it also. I have about a 1/4 acres of tree-ed area in the...
