    I was out working on the finishing touches for some of the Jim Thorpe Smokin Hole Rally rides this weekend. I thought that I would entice you all with some photo's.

    The party pavilion! This is where the magic is going to all take place.

    Sheets hanging in the enchanted forest. This isn't actually on the route as it covers some challenging terraine, I'll have to include it as an option.

    The Lehigh Gorge. I think the plan is to strap the bikes onto the power lines and pull them across the gorge.

    And here's Jim Thorpe Dave, in the flesh!!

    It wasn't that long ago that this was all woodland.

    The road was so dusty it even made me look fast! I hope I didn't hold you up too bad on Saturday but I had fun. Took us a little longer at my snails pace but I was definitely having a good time.

    If you're not on the list for JT Smokin' Hole, get on the list. Nightstalker put together a couple of really good loops and found some of the power line trails along the way for some added exploration. If all of the rides are like this you guys (and girls) are in for one heck of a weekend.
