    If looking to do a series of trails, I would suggest the following (all suggestions are crushed stone with little or no road riding):

    Wow, a blast from the past. Hard to believe that was 9 years ago. :)

    I agree. It looks a lot like the top of that hill. Definitely looks like a challenge going up or back on a bike. I know I wouldn't try it, but I know others that have ridden it. :)

    I love the Pine Creek trail too. I have ridden sections of it twice, and the whole thing once.

    If you ever journey eastward, you would probably also like the Lehigh Gorge section of rail trail. ...

    That damage does indeed look to me like someone rode the tires under-inflated, This is further evidenced by the valve being at that odd angle that usually happens when you ride under-inflated tires. ...

    The former box that was falling apart too much to withstand any more shipping has become a favorite bed for one of my cats. I'm surprised he can even fit in it.

    I suspected that what I added wouldn't last too long, but I didn't think they would necessarily find the same home. The RD and brake pads were my contribution. The pads aren't crap to someone who...
