A clyde's assult on stony creek

Goal number two has been met for the year. Sunday I rode 52.2 miles through the greater Stony Creek area in Dauphin, Lebanon, and Schuylkill counties. We took many pictures but only a handful turned out nice.



Yours truly



My friend Greg



Watch those ankles



A very loose section of trail.



Another stony crossing



We had lunch on the rail trail section



An interesting bit of local history. The pictures of the ruins were all blurred.

So thats about it, rode 52.2 miles, hiked a good two miles, and gave most my food to Greg because evidently he is much more sensitive to blood sugar levels than I am. I did the whole ride/hike on an apple and half a sandwich. It was an awesome ride and I look forward to doing it again, except without the Kenda Kross Plus tires, knobbies would have been appreciated on the looser sections.

Haha, I'd like to see that too. It was tough enough just to cross the rocks carrying the bikes. I do admit I was very disappointed not to find any snakes on those rocks.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
