    I'm campin and ridin solo out of Poe Valley State Park on a 450L friday and sat night 8/23-24 if anyone is around and wants to meet up for some easy-ish adult (50+ type) riding. I rode the W101 route several times on a mountain bike but never been there yet on a moto.

    I might be able to meet up with you Saturday early afternoon. I'll check in with you later in the week. I'm open for whatever you're comfortable riding. I have no idea what the W101 route is?

    Well, kind of had a plan change. Probably doing some street riding instead.

    Anyone riding this Saturday? I'll be on the mountain again in the morning. Black 1200 GSA, say hi if you see me.

    Also a warning, there is a tree down on Little Poe Rd, about 300 feet from the fork with Panther Run Rd. It's a big tree, and it's about 4 feet above ground going across the road. Impossible to go around, under or over.

    I have some people coming to look at my roof on Tuesday but if they come early or don't come I might go over then. If not... maybe next Saturday or Sunday.

    W101 is a mountain biking loop.

    I miss riding out there... We always did the Conserve the Ride rallies with AltRider and were dues paying members of SMCC to help keep the trails open in the area for all users. http://sevenmountainsconservationcorp.com/

    Anyone know if it's worth a 34 mile detour loop to head up to Paddy Mountain Rd (https://goo.gl/maps/Azu5uSWMnUFSWs7K6) while riding around in BESF? Saw it listed as a level 4 option in the 2015 Altrider route posted much earlier in the thread. Been through BESF a few times, just looking for other interesting stuff?

    If it's the Paddy Mt road I'm thinking of the upper part isn't bad but the lower part is very rocky. I find it fun though.

    No more this section... https://www.google.com/maps/dir/40....0x89cede1c988f6547:0x7ac46fdc7a0863b0!1m0!3e0

    It's a driveable trail. a decent 2 track where it comes off of Cherry Run Rd and Woodward Gap Rd then gets really rocky and rutted the farther east you go on it. They used it during Touratech Rally and guys on GS's were running it. West to East is easier that East to West ( uphill in the rocky section).

    Will be at BESF tomorrow. Hope to see others there! You can't miss me. I'm the fat guy on the green bike with enough dayglo to blind folks.

    Rode with 3 friends from NY and one from near me at Bald Eagle. Managed to toss myself to the ground within 100 yards of my truck. Met a nice guy from Chicago doing the MABDR and 2 guys from around Ebensburg, I think. Stopped for lunch at The Wilderness Lodge. I recorded 73 and change miles.
