    Default Michaux Maximus

    Hey y'all-

    Michaux Maximus is on May 5th. Some of South Central PA's finest rocks await you.

    Any Salonistas attending? Let me know if you have questions -- I've been on 98% of these trails and camped at the campground at the bottom of the hill (which is the campground used for TooTall's Salonista gathering later this year).

    That looks pretty spectacular. I'll second the fact riding is fantastic in that area.
    Sorry bub, I'm otherwise engaged that weekend.

    It's been about 10 years since I raced Michaux Maximus. This was my favorite of the 3 races. I'm out of town that weekend, but it doesn't matter. I barely ride my mountain bike now, let alone try to race it.

    The first few miles of Maximus are ... rough. It gets much nicer then though 3 Mile trail is chunky. But all the way from Michaux Road to Cold Springs and down Vista is as good as it gets around here, IMO.

    I won't be there, but Michaux is awesome. Easily my favorite place to ride.

    I rode the 2nd half of the technical trails yesterday -- along the Ridgeline from Michaux Rd. all the way to Cold Springs. Holy cow, almost perfect conditions.

    If you are looking for a good time on the bouncy bike, come on out! Temps ought to be in the 50s and 60s with low chance of rain.

    And by "Low chance of rain" I meant "It's going to rain the whole time". Holy cow, that was pretty biblical.

    Next up, Curse of Dark Hollow in July! Get on it, VSaloners.

    Round 2 is coming! The Curse of Dark Hollow is up on Sunday. Any salonistas going? I'll be the dehydrated, cramping guy.

    No racing for me. Good luck and stay safe/hydrated!


    I'll be riding from my house to meet family at Laurel Lake on Saturday. About a 50 mile ride from Hershey. I'm hoping to beat the heat by playing in the water all day.

    That looks like it was a toasty ride. Hope you got yourself some tasty treats at Twirly Top.

    Race update. It was hot, it was long, and I didn't bonk or cramp so we'll call it a rousing success. Terrific course! Next up, Terror of Teaberry in September.

    I don't get to ride there much but Southern Michaux has some of the very finest trails in the area. Highly recommend. Bring your climbing legs.
