That sounds like a great time. It is 14 hour drive for us, but I may work on DH a bit. Are there other trails in the area we could ride during the week?

Here is info on one of our local cycling events I'd encourage you to consider if you can. VERY reasonable and includes a free t-shirt AND helmet:

The Heritage Explorer Bike Tour and Festival is set for Saturday, June 15, 2013, at Mellow Park in Peckville, Pennsylvania. The Bike Tour is a family-friendly, non-competitive event that benefits the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. It offers something for everyone. Visit www.HeritageExplorer.org to learn more!

Here are some additional notes provided by one of our senior bike club members:

This is one great ride. Choice of 11, 22 and 44 miles. Selecting the 22 mile option is suggested, as you then avoid the unimproved section over rough trail to Union Dale and thus any bicycle will do--a hybrid or off road bicycle is really not needed as entire route is on paved or very hard packed dirt (22 miles-11 miles out, 11 miles back). You also get back in time for much of the action at the festival.

$30 for the ones over 18 and under 55, and $20 for those older than 55 if registered prior to May 18.

Free Quality T-shirt, a bicycle helmet from Bell sports, Inc., a free breakfast, food along the way, free lunch courtesy of Keystone College after the ride, music, magicians, hulu hoop experts, exhibits and more. Close by--just N of Scranton, easy to get to. Less than an hours drive. Ample free parking. Supports a local effort and gets better each year.

This will be year 3 for Augie and others. Easy enough to register directly, but sending the $20 (Senior 55+, student or Military) or $30 (18 years and up to 55 years) fee in a check made out to: A MUELLER along with your name(s), address, telephone #, T-shirt size (S,M,L,XL, XXL), birthdate prior to April 15th will get you registered as part of the STBC, Inc. team. The bucks saved (if any) will then go toward bicycle parts on the many bicycles STBC will be refurbishing for the May 11 bicycle Give Away in JC. A different ride in a different area just one week after the GFLBT. No refunds once you register.

But play with this website. See Pat Gilligan talk on the video. See the STBCers in many of the 101 photos from last year. Read the description of the routes. Cruise around the website a bit. While some items are not current (as in FAQ), most of the info is accurate and useful.

Want to register as part of TEAM STBC? Send appropriate fee (see above--$20 or $30) payable to A Mueller, 4009 Drexel Drive, Vestal, NY 13850-4016 prior to April 15, 2013. Include the following information:

Name, Email address, Mailing address, Telephone, T-shirt size (S,M,L,XL, XXL), Date of Birth

OR, you can bypass the team signup and register directly. Augie Mueller
