    Timberline gt mountain bike

    Fat bikes are what all terrain bicycles should have been long ago. My full suspension regular MTB just sits there while my rigid fat bike gets ridden daily. IMHO, they are that much better especially on sand.

    Timberline gt mountain bike

    Are you picking one up or already have it? The 90s stuff can be decent and is better than anything at Walmart today. MTB of that era didn't really have the geometry sorted out yet. Today's bikes ride better on the trails, less twitchy with a slacker head tube angle, longer top tube and shorter...

    Penn Branch Bike Trail

    There is not much coasting in the sand. You will slow down real quick but it's not hard to maintain 12+ MPH with this gearing. It's comparable to going 20+MPH on a road bike factoring in the wind vs sand resistance. This set up is actually a dual singlespeed. Takes about 30 seconds to move the...

    Penn Branch Bike Trail

    They are just the ticket for sand and snow. The real deep stuff is still a little work but when the tire pressure is right you roll right over it. The traction is fantastic and the heavier wheels spin up a little slower but the momentum makes up for it. They are set up tubeless with sealant so...

    Penn Branch Bike Trail

    I've ridden it and it's a good fun trail. If 20 miles is too much, start at Batsto and use the blue trail to shorten it up to less than 10. Either ride is better than not riding in my book.

    Land next to Atco Dragway

    I believe the area closest to Jackson adjacent to the track is for additional parking based on second hand knowledge. The land cleared for blueberries that was mentioned at the meeting the other night is news to me. Not sure how much unburned fuel is going to wind up in the fruit or land. High...

    Cold Spring Preserve - Marlton, NJ

    Nice write up. I ride my bike throughout that area frequently. That long bridge better be hit straight or... There is a '68 Camaro not too far from that short steep incline. Easy to spot when the leaves are gone.

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    I registered by email a couple weeks ago, called today to double check and my name was not on the friendly girl's spreadsheet so she added it. Print your sent email and bring it with you just in case. Many others reported the same thing when they called to confirm.

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    I am of the same opinion. I read Al's opinion piece and it's really getting tiring to keep hearing that opposition is coming from those who engage in the destruction. We all know there are problems and problem areas but the draft solution doesn't address that and the park police don't have...

    I went outside right away. Kinda kicking myself for not speaking up but I was having trouble putting my thoughts in order.

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    Made it to the meeting last night. It was the first one I had a chance to attend. It was the last town hall meeting. They announced four stakeholder public meetings that you have to register for? Plus another public meeting to be held at Hammonton High School. I was not surprised to see the...

    How did you get your screen name?

    Funny, I'm sure I picked it up from my mom also. Looked it up and it's WWI army slang.

    How did you get your screen name?

    Mine is a nod to my dad. He ran a rooming house just about until his last day. He had lots of time to collect stuff. Lots of it. Attics, crawl spaces, umpteen garages, basements all full of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. He had at least one of everything.

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    Select some anecdotes, add wide sweeping generalisations and offer a solution in such a way as to marginalize anyone who disagrees with it. Yack I spent 5 hours in the Waterford area of Wharton yesterday. I saw a couple in a canoe at Goshen and two enduro riders on Sandy Causeway. Actually...

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    I was down Sandy Causeway today also. I agree that the rain is going to make a mess of it. Many spots seem to have been made worse. It looks like a disaster. There was also someone getting stuck in a Prius. How they got as far in as they did I don't know but by the time they were free the sun...

    ORV Management In Sensitive Areas Of Wharton

    I just found out about this yesterday, read this thread and am fired up. Other than signing petitions and contacting gov. reps. I would like to do more to help. Hands on documenting of the roads that are being closed. I can cover alot of ground on the recently closed roads on my fat bike. That...

    New study on Lyme Disease

    Ticks are my biggest concern when riding my bicycle in the pines. I check myself when I get out of the woods and then again when I get home. I don't use bug spray but shower as soon as I get home. I've only ever found two on me and both times it was on the double check search. My sister is a...

    There’s something for everyone in the Black Run Preserve in Marlton

    I ride my bike here at least 3 times a week. Pitching in when I can. There is still some clean up to do but it's mostly some illegal dumping in a couple areas. It is much cleaner than it was. That was a pretty good write up describing the marked trails. It's really starting to get popular this...

    Forest Fire at Atsion

    I was on the south west side of Atsion Lake at one of my favorite rest spots when I spotted a bit of smoke. It must have just started. A few minutes later. It's very dry right now.
