Thats awesome, your a great parent and your son will remember that along time.

yes, my favorite road is almost clear to the top. it will be clear by weekend and then a whole week with no vehicles. it is a magical place up there, especially w/o vehicles, this is from last weekend. really good snowpack this spring, so corn skiing will be fantastic; if it gets cold enough at night. come ride and ski

I've been meaning to see just how far I can uni for several months now, and finally decided today was the day. I aimed for a nice 10 mile ride up the Schuylkill river and instead wound up just over 17.

I wouldn't exactly call it "comfortable" on my cheap UDC 29er with 150s and a KH Fusion Street saddle, but I'm glad I did it. Now, I just have to buy that 36er I've got my eye on.

Woodhill forest mountain bike tracks, we wore ourselves out. One member of our club conquered the structures. Covered about 10K, I was shattered.

A few snaps from the Philly Uni meetup last weekend. The delay is my having to go to my darkroom and actually process film from the 1957 Ricoh Diacord.

4 miles by MUni this morning - hard work because I had trouble stopping coughing

Started in Queen's Park then hit the trails.

The final shot is a delicious steep switchback at the end of the Rowley Lake trail. Much more fun to come down than to go up You can see the next level of the trail through the trees above the Uni.

Details in the Blog as usual for those who like reading

Hey Mike, what crank length do you usually run for a ride like that?
