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.
Brian Lewis had his motion sensor camera in different spots of the woods last year, well he took all the pictures that it captured and made a cool looking time lapse. Im pretty sure everyone who came to the trails is in there at some point, I think it was like a couple thousand pictures. Props to him for editing it all together, bad news is someone broke the camera while it was down there this winter. Keep your calenders clear for July 4th weekend will be having another jam and hopefully a show like last year at the Burners in Bethlehem. This year marks 20 years of Posh existence so there are some cool things cooking up for that, like some much anticipated Posh shirts. Dont be shy to come to the trails, I know a lot of foreigners plan trips so if you plan on coming out let us know. The trails are for everyone to enjoy, lets make it a good year.
Is spring finally sprung, is the ground still frozen? Lot’s of work to do this year to get the trails running after this harsh winter, come lend a hand on the weekends if you can.
Despite the bad weather the Cranx Jam went down, big thanks to Cranx for doing this and raising some cash for the trails. Angel really went above and beyond for this event and its awesome to see other trail dudes step up for a good cause. Thanks again to all the sponsors and everyone who could make the drive and donate. Its not even officially winter on the calender yet but we been getting a lot of snow, I think its kinda good because all this snow is just more weight on the tarps and really insulating the jumps good. Support your local indoor parks like Cranx or go shovel snow instead of dirt. Oh yeah someone with a lot of money on the east coast needs to open a place like this up

Keep a look out for razor scooter kids taking tarps off the jumps and trying to ride there little razor sharp wheels into the dirt. What a lack of respect but most of them are really young and prolly dont even have a clue what they are doing. Its a damm shame but how do you stop them or what do you do if you catch them in the act. At least we got a new edit from Doug from the end of the trail season, so check that out. Dont forget the Cranx jam on December 14th, its cold as heck already so indoor sessions are a good relief.
Winter is pretty much here with below freezing temps and windy most days, so we got some stuff in store for this winter to get you thru the crap east coast winters. Cranx skatepark in Syracuse, NY is nice enough to let us have a jam at their park on December 14th and part of the profit that day goes to the trails. Thanks to the sponsors and Angel and Dale for setting this up. If you never been there its definitely worth it with a really long trail style jump line. We also might have some other parks on the east coast doing similar stuff throughout the winter so keep your eyes open for that. Check out the Belgium’s photo gallery here for all the photos they took while in American. Also check out the ECD website for a bunch of pics from the Halloween jam and while your there check out all the info on Butcher’s new bike shop in the area… support local
