I hope this string of good weather continues, this has got to be the best weather we ever had for a summer. Not too much rain, not too hot just perfect amount of awesomeness. More people need to come out and enjoy the trails. Labor day weekend which is coming up shortly come ride Catty and Posh. Get a half session at one trails in the afternoon and evening session at another, or ride one trails one day and the other trails the next day, whatever just come chill and ride and bbq. The Halloween jam is most likely going to be October 26th. Plan ahead to go see the world premiere of Heroes of Dirt Saturday night and ride in crazy costumes Sunday at Catty. Saturday during the day there will be a chill session at Posh and maybe some kind of contest at the Heroes of Dirt premiere. Just a friendly reminder, please water the trails before riding them, help out the locals and keep the trails dialed.
Summer is coming and going fast like usual. Which brings us to everyone’s favorite time autumn. Wow there is a lot going on, everyone decides to do stuff in October. At least do some stuff in September to spread it out a little. The Halloween jam will go down but cant figure out a specific date, if anyone has any suggestions on some dates maybe even doing it the end of September. October 5th weekend is the first major TRA event, and Eric Bugbee’s movie Heroes of Dirt is finally getting its big premiere release October 25th. In between that is a bunch of other stuff going on most of it not in the area, but yeah cant really pinpoint a good date and the weather is always a factor. The Posh crew is also keen on doing something big for the end of the trail season in October. Speaking of autumn you can finally watch the Dig X Catty edit on youtube instead of the crappy mpora player. Its sad that Dig wont be a magazine anymore but they will be producing some good online content so keep an eye out for that.
Big thanks to everyone who made the Jams at Catty and Posh a success. The Posh guys were a little hesitant to have a Jam but it went off good so there will be more in the future. Deluxe just finished up their Woodlanders bmx series. The credit section has a bunch of Swantz in it so dont miss out on that. Dont forget the TRA jam at Grindlab this weekend. Also if there is rain in the forecast tarp the jumps before you leave, if a jump is really dry and blown out then leave it untarped. Just use common sense you know.
Well cant believe its almost the 4th of July. Trails are running sweet thou, fingers crossed we dont get hit with too many storms this week. Saturday looks good so come out and have a good time, respect the trails. BBQ going, maybe a raffle, and a show at the Burners in Bethlehem afterwards. Also check out the Deluxe site for there Woodlanders web video series which rules. Lots of good trail stuff on the web now, check out this piece on some trails in Texas, really good photos and such.
Big thanks to all the sponsors who keep the trails alive… support
I swear June has become the month of rain every year and getting worse. Last year was lots of rain then finally some nice weather for the 4th of July. Well same deal this year, Jam is July 5th and a benefit show the same night. Also maybe something going on at those other trails the next day. Stay tuned for maybe a flyer or other info on whats going on.
Some years we have a jam on Memorial Day. Well not this year as you can see we got hit by one of the worst storms I have ever seen. PA weather seems to get crazier every year, I hope we don’t get too many more storms like that. Still have some work to do to finish some jumps so come down and lend a hand weekend warriors.
Its that time of year again, weather is getting nice, but with no shade the woods dry out quick. Been getting some decent help here and there. If you ride Catty or Posh on the weekends in the summer, try to come out and lend a hand especially on the weekends. Every weekend there will be people around so dont be shy. Check out trailrambling.wordpress.com for some spring tips and get mad if you like square jumps.
